    Contract Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lake Forest, IL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hospira (Lake Forest, IL (US)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Job was nothing like described in interview. Seemed to be very challenging, but work was simply data entry. I would recommend asking specifically for what you want and ensuring they give you a clear answer about tasks you'll be taking on.

    Interview Questions

    • What was your most challenging moment while working and how did you overcome it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Yes. Ask for $1-$2 more per hour.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hospira (San Diego, CA (US)) in February 2008.

    Interview

    Easy process. Not much technical. Process oriented. They do not check your technical expertise. Very difficult for contractor to be converted into full time. They hire more contractors than full time employees. They use contractors and full time people enjoy. Work environment is very sad. No other activities through out the year.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation phase. You have to accept what ever they offers you. Otherwise just do not accept it. Company policies are very strict for contractors.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hospira in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was not really an interview, they merely emailed me some questions. I answered them, and then they said I was hired. They also sent me some money to buy supplies as I was to work remote. How an administrative assistant is to work remote, I have not the foggiest of ideas. I was told one thing by one person, and another thing by another person, and when I asked questions in an email, they did not answer them instead asking me questions like, this won't be a problem, no? Can you handle all fo this? Which I could, but with training, which was only supposed to be a week long, and I needed more time. I mentioned said thing, but it fell on deaf ears. I pulled out when they told me that they needed for me to send a copy of my deposit slip so they could have it from payroll purposes. This set up red flags, and I began to think this was a scam. It probably is.
