    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hospira (Lake Forest, IL) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Job was nothing like described in interview. Seemed to be very challenging, but work was simply data entry. I would recommend asking specifically for what you want and ensuring they give you a clear answer about tasks you'll be taking on.

    Interview Questions

    • What was your most challenging moment while working and how did you overcome it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Yes. Ask for $1-$2 more per hour.
