    Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pfizer.

    Interview

    After two weeks of applying online I received an invite to schedule an interview via Hirehue which is basically a one way interview where you are talking and looking at yourself in a video. Very akward feeling. Typical STAR questions. One of the questions I remembered was explain the gaps in your employment. Any one knows that, that type of question when you have experienced a few layoffs should be explained in person not on a one way video. Overall, I don't think I did my best as I am a personal type of person. I like interaction and eye contact etc and making a connection. I feel this interview is kind of bias because the person that will be reviewing it will perceive you how they want to perceive you whether you did well or not. With that said it has been about 3 business days and no response yet. Either way it was not a good experience at all.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    2 phone screens + onsite interview. All interviews were very similar in content, with a mix of data structures/algorithms questions in addition to machine learning/stats questions. Questions weren't specific to biotech/pharma which is what I had expected and prepared for.
