    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Almac Group (Souderton, PA (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Seriously, what is the deal with this company? The company set up a phone interview about the open position. I received an email from the company recruiter approximately 25 minutes after the phone interview was supposed to begin indicating that they were stuck in a meeting and wanted to reschedule later in the day. I was unable to reschedule later that day due to another appointment that I had. I indicated that I had availability the following day but heard nothing in return. Approximately a week later I received an email indicating that I had to due something to my online career profile but then have not heard anything from them since. It seems to me that this company doesn't value people and views them as nothing more than a commodity. I am glad that things will not be progressing with this company!

    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.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Souderton, PA (US)
    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.
