    Staff Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chestnut Ridge, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies (Chestnut Ridge, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process for this position was very rushed. I went through three interview steps and very short notice was given for each. I got the strong feeling that the company cared more about getting an applicant who would work with their rushed timeline than in getting a candidate who was a good fit for the job. The final step that I completed was an interview that consisted of five different sessions with different people. This resulted in interviews that were not very in-depth or informative, since the questions in each session were basically repeats of questions from previous sessions. Before leaving this interview, I asked about next steps and was told to expect contact within a week. Three months later, I have not received any contact at all, and have not received the courtesy of a reply to my follow up emails. I would pass on a job offer from this company and would not apply there again. Their rude and discourteous treatment of their job applicants raises red flags about what it would be like to work for them.
