    Average Interview

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Apotex (Canada)


    It was an online interview format so when a question gets asked, you get a small window of time to think about what to say and then you answer the question. It's fairly straight forward and not very time consuminig.

    General behavioral questions and questions regarding prior work experience such as what I did, how I improved a certain system.
