    Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at King Pharmaceuticals (New York, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    From Alpharma to King. Great at first. I made it through multiple cattle call interviews at a hotel in NJ. Lots of behavioral based questions with outcome examples by multiple panels. The direct hiring manager was the obstacle. I went through about 4 additional interviews back in home state with min communication. The position stayed open until concern escalated to area VP. Once hired I learned others offered job in NJ. I am an experienced sales winning AA Woman. Racial bias was pervasive.

    Interview Questions

    • Plethora of layered behavioral based questions   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Don't remember, just took months to get to this phase
