Default Actavis?

Does anyone have any info on this contract? I received an email from the recruiter that they want to talk with me about it but that was it.

Has anybody been contacted or re-contacted by a recruiter since the Watson purchase was announced? I suspect the above post is correct.

I saw this too, but they are still scheduling interviews? MoxDuo is actually a QRxPharma product, so maybe that makes a difference.

I had a phone screen over a week ago and haven't heard anything. The recruiter said she would get back to me about interviewing at the beginning of May. Has anyone heard anything about a face to face yet?

Was told by the recruiter the sell changes nothing; part of the agreement is to bring on an experienced sales team for the product. I was told interviews would be May 1-11, based on your geography. Some would be the first week and some the following. Of those who have received word of a f/f, what region of the country are you from?
This may help all of us sort out the information.

I received an email that I had been high recommended to the DM and she would contact me with information regarding the f/f, but I have not heard anything yet.

I have f2f this week in Atlanta.
Second & final interview latter part of May
Offers contingent upon approval of Mox Duo end of May.
Everything else I have read is what recruiter told me.
I used to have a base of 80k and recruiter said this would get me back to that, so who knows? They LOVE to save that info until offer is made. For me this usually means everyone wastes their time if the offer is not strong enough!

I am in the North East and have an interview on 3rd in Atlanta.
Salary 70 plus - Inventiv will try to get you for as low as possible and will base it on an increase over your current base.

Was told final interviews would be at end of May and offers after approval late June.

This is a change as they usually do all the interviews in 1 day with the top candidate (or 2) meeting regional the same day.

Anyone have any other information??

I am on a contract now with a different company and we are all making the same base salary. Are all the reps currently on this contract making 90k?

For the record: I Have a f2f this week and a base salary has not been discussed.

I have over 4 years of pain management experience. When the recruiter called last week for the phone interview, her first question was what type of experience I had in the market. Not that would be any true indication of who will move forward and who will not, as we all know from past experiences in this industry.

Has anyone received notification for interviews for next week? I was told they would be on Tuesday and Wednesday and I would be notified tomorrow if I will be flying to Atlanta. I live in the western portion of the country.

As to the salary question, the recruiter stated it will be a "nice" contract. I made greater than $70k in my last pharma direct job and she stated that my past salary was "within range".

All the reps started at 90 and some are making low 6 figures. I know this to be true.

No, nothing yet. They are still conducting first interviews this week, ends are supposed to take place next week in Atlanta again. The managers told me that contingent offers would go out June 1. Inventiv recruiter said June 25th, so I am hoping the managers had the right info. I expect to hear something end of this week, at the latest the beginning of next week.

My interview in Atlanta was around 90 minutes. I did not have a "panel' style interview. The hiring manager was great. THere were a few STAR questions but not too many; there were questions regarding past performance.. nothing out of the ordinary.

I was told the next round of interviews are in Dallas the week of May 21st. People moving forward would most likely find out by this Friday.

Offers will go out the first of June with a contingency clause of drug being approved on June 25.

Salaries seem in a moderately high range for expereinced individuals considering this is a contract position.
Does anyone else have any other or different information?

Yeah, I Smelled the residuals. As soon as I walked in, the interviewer said, "don't blame me, the last candidate must've been really nervous." this was for the Atlanta East position.
