    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Almac Group.

    Interview

    No phone screen, F2F only. Did not talk to HR. Took about a month from my application to interview. Standard HR provided questions, not too many behavioral based. Positive environment. Really liked the vibe. Seems like thre process will move quickly - along the two weeks everyone else has experienced.

    Interview

    Two interviews, first one by phone, second one face to face, Phone interview was about my background and technical abilities, Face to face was about the requirements of the position and a tour of the stability laboratory.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Almac Group (Souderton, PA (US)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Found out about their opening on through their website. I was contacted by HR for 2:1 interview. The interview was very simple. They ask some HR questions. Most questions were about fit into the company and interaction. They had very little technical questions. They ask me about SQL. If I knew what is left and right join. Ask if I knew procedures, query, functions, and operators. The interview was pleasant but the HR needs some work.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    They called me for a verbal offer. We negotiated a little on the phone during the call. I ask for some time to look over the benefits package. During the negotiations and questions about the benefits package, they sent me an email that they are sending me an official offer letter that day. The following day after I ask for an in person meeting with HR, they sent me a withdrawal of candidacy email. I ask for some feedback on what I did and never gotten a reply. Very Unprofessional.

    Production Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Souderton, PA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Almac Group (Souderton, PA (US)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was promoted from a Production Operator to a Production Coordinator after a year. The job was posted on the bulletin board, but I heard through my supervisor, who suggested I apply. After completing the internal application, I waited several months without hearing a word about the job. The supervisors did not have an answer for me and said they were waiting on HR. Three months later I was finally informed they were indeed still hiring and were interested in me. I had one interview with the supervisors from my shift. The process went smoothly and soon after I accepted the offer. It was extremely frustrating having to wait three months before hearing back about a job bid.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't think there were any difficult questions asked during my interview. The supervisors read the questions off a pre-printed paper and they were typical interview questions.   Answer Question
