Mine was, "Comparing the rural and urban population, how do you think their perception of the role of a pharmacist differ"? Basically compare and contrast the two. I had 15 minutes which was just enough time. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was pleasant. It was a closed file interview, so they knew nothing about me. I basically I had to sell myself in the time given. It was supposed to be 30 minutes but I took 45 minutes. I think it lasted that long because of the questions that I asked at the end. They didn't stop me at all. Supposedly one interviewer plays the good cop and other one plays the bad cop."
