Medifast – Why Work For Us?

1980 was a pretty momentous year. A team of young Olympians performed a miracle on ice and Dr. William Vitale formed Jason Pharmaceuticals. The new company began production of a meal replacement product under the name Medifast.

Under the guidance of CEO Bradley T. MacDonald, Medifast experienced extremely impressive growth, rising to more than $300 million in annual revenue. And in 2010, Medifast was named the #1 Small Company in America by Forbes magazine.

Today, Medifast is the brand recommended by over 20,000 doctors since 1980. But the success we’re most proud of isn’t found in accounting ledgers. It’s found in the glowing faces of the people whose lives we improve each and every day. That’s what it’s truly all about.

Imagine going to work every day knowing that you’re helping to change someone’s life for the better. How would that make you feel? If you answered… amazing, then a career at Medifast might be a perfect fit for you!

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medifast (Baltimore, MD).


    Phone screen with a recruiter, this part was fine. The following week, I went in for 2 in person interviews, one with the supervisor the role reported to, and another with a peer of this supervisor. The first meeting was with the other supervisor, and it was fine. The interview with the supervisor for the role was a train wreck. He didn't know my name, had not looked at my resume at all, and the interview itself was very rushed. I got the distinct feeling that he viewed talking with me as a waste of time, and that he had better things to be doing. He finished his questions of me, did not give me any opportunity to ask any of my own, and then hurried me out to the elevators.

    A few days later, I got an very nice email from the recruiter I had spoken with previously letting me know that they had decided to move on with other candidates. I was fine with this, since I would have declined the next round of interviews based on the experience with the hiring manager.
