    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apotex in February 2014.

    Interview

    I had a wonderful experience with Apotex and their recruitment procedure. I had a phone screen, followed by an assessment followed by a face to face interview. They seemed very thorough with their questions and the recruiting manager kept me in the loop of where my application was and provided feedback throughout. I did not get the offer as a previous employee came back into the role. However, I would apply for a position with them again.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Apotex (Miramar, FL (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    I applied on Wednesday received email Thursday for phone interview which was done on Monday. Email saying that I was moving to the next step. In person interview on Thursday with supervisor and manager for about a hour. Both were very welcoming and friendly. After that interview met with HR right after for another interview. This person was also very nice.

    Interview felt more like a conversation not an interview. They make you feel very comfortable from the moment u meet them.

    Received call within hours after the interview saying they want to move to the next steps.

    Process was very quick and easy
