    Applied via school career website. Was given an on campus interview. Thought I nailed the interview, was a 2 on one interview with a new recruiter and a women with 20+ years experience at Amgen. They asked about resume and behavioral stuff, even asked something about my high school experience on my resume. At the end there was time for about 3 questions from me. Was told I’d hear back by end of following week. I did not. About 4 weeks later I got the rejection email.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amgen (Tampa, FL (US)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty standard process - First round was a basic HR discussion/phone screening.
    The second round was a telephonic discussion with the hiring manager and final round was an on-site discussion with two managers.
    The interview process is very lethargic and a real test of patience. In my case, 3 rounds took 2-2.5 months. I had to keep following up with the recruiter about the result and next steps.
    My final round was delayed by almost 15 days due to 'unforeseen' reasons.
    I nailed all the rounds but they found a 'better match'.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a dataset, what will be your approach to derive insights? What database open sources you have used? About projects and past experience? Pretty behavioral and situation based questions.   Answer Question
