    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Novartis Pharmaceuticals (East Hanover, NJ).

    Interview

    Posted to vacancy on brass ring site, which acknowledged quickly. In 2 weeks I was contacted by recruiter for a phone screen...went very well and told I may be needed on short notice. Two months later I was emailed on one days notice for an in person interview. Once I arrived I met with hiring manager and learned the original job was filled internally and I was invited in to discuss a more junior role. We quickly agreed I was overqualified for it. I received a sincere apology and a wish for good luck.

    I think there is a significant disconnect between recruiting and the hiring manager, probably a symptom of understaffing in Hr, which is not surprising given industry trends.
