    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Salix Pharmaceuticals in April 2017.


    Applied through a recruiter, manager then called to set up phone interview for the next day. Called the next day and had a 40 minute phone interview that was insane. Was more like what I would expect from an in person interview.
