    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Novartis Pharmaceuticals (Plainsboro, NJ (US)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Very rigorous. The check on the background for a while. I was waiting for them to get back for weeks. There were two rounds of interviews. First round you meet with line management and peers who ask you questions about fit, function and motivation. Then second round is more or less with upper management - they ask you to present to larger group.

    Interview was on phone first, then face to face with one to two managers. They then sent you on to meet with Regional Director. Normal way of doing things. The interview process was simple. Just need to do your homework on who they are, their products, etc...

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Novartis Pharmaceuticals (Honolulu, HI (US)) in June 2011.

    The hiring process was a good experience. Interviewing with the district manager was an overall good experience. I took a little longer than I had hoped for but it turned out great for me in the end. I was up against some very strong candidates and I was lucky to make it through the interview process and being selected by the district manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Novartis Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview

    I interview twice, face to face with hiring manager. Then had a phone interview with area director. Very comfortable style, but I am sure it could vary from manager to manager. Basic interview questions..tell me about how you deal with partners who won't cooperate or hold their weight, how do you deal with tough customers, etc. Why did you leave your last company. What salary requirements do you have?

    Interview Questions

    • How do you deal with partners who are uncooperative and unmotivated?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Great offer--no need for negotiation.
