    I applied online. I interviewed at Pharmaceutical Product Development.

    Interview

    For the most part, the company was not very open about the hiring process. I applied for two different positions and I heard back about one within a week but the second one I never heard anything about and it has been close to two weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pharmaceutical Product Development.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online and had a phone interview within a couple weeks. I had an in person interview a week and a half later and met four supervisors for the department. They had a number of formal questions each but were overall very laid back and seemed genuinely interested in my background and what I was looking for in an employer. I was offered a position within a few business days, but it did require a background check, credit check, and drug test first.
