    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Almac Group.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by an online IQ test. Received an email back a few days later, informing me they went with another candidate. Appears they base their judgement off of what an online test dictates and not human to human interaction. Kind of odd.

    Interview Questions

    • The phone interview was very basic.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Almac Group (Souderton, PA (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I initially had a 15 minute interview with HR. At this time I discussed the compensation I was looking for and they had assured me it was in the range for this role. 2 weeks later, I then completed a 2 hour interview process at the Souderton site only to find at the very end that the compensation I desired was out of range for the role.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Almac Group (Souderton, PA (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Started with an HR pre-screen. Followed up by an HR screening. Next, a pre-screen phone interview with the hiring manager. Then, an in-person interview with the hiring manager, the reporting manager and the VP of the organization. After that, there was a follow-up phone interview with the hiring manager and the reporting manager because they decided they hadn't asked the right questions during the 2 hour in-person interview. After all that, I was notified that I did not get the offer through LinkedIn. The would-be reporting manager re-posted the job without verifying with HR whether I had been notified that I had not been selected.

Really liked the vibe. Seems like thre process will move quickly - along the two weeks everyone else has experienced.
