What impressed you positively?

"Parking was surprisingly available (I guess because the interview was during spring break), quick response (e-mail notification of acceptance the next day), several opportunities through their school for giving back to the community (which is important to me as a working profeesional)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't feel like their questions were fully able to reveal who I was as a qualified applicant or candidate. Coming out of the interview, I was scared that I wasn't able to "sell myself" to the interviewers as well as I had hoped because their questions weren't really geared to uncover who I was as a person. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"More exposure to pharmacy work environment, more questions to ask the interviewers. If I had known that they weren't going to ask about my strengths/values/weaknesses/ethical questions/why would I be a good pharmacist, etc, I would have tried to emphasize these things by incorporating them into the answers of the other questions they did ask. Be prepared to sell yourself on your own, in case their questions do not lead you to do so." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I came checked in at the front desk, waited a couple minutes. One of the interviewers came out to get me and brought me back to a conference room where another faculty member was waiting (I was expecting one-on-one, but it was two-on-one). They introduced themselves and began by asking if I had any questions and then continued the interview from there. They had file folders that appeared to have my application in front of them, although I did not see them look over my personal statement at anytime during the interview. I had gotten a bad vibe from one of the other interviewers because it seemed like they didn't want to be there, which just added to my stress level. " Report Response
