I applied online. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (United Kingdom) in Nov 2020

Interview

A very nice interview process, with about a month from my initial application to offer. Everyone was very friendly and kept regularly in contact to keep me updated. Began with a 15 minute phone screen (nothing to worry about, they are just checking you are eligible to work/able to relocate if needed etc). Then had the interview. It was a panel interview lasting 2.5 hours. The first step was a 30 minute presentation, followed by a 45 minute technical interview (this was quite challenging!) and finally 45 minute values interview.

Interview Questions
  • One question on each of the 5 AstraZeneca Values -When have you had to make a difficult decision where you were met with resistance? Technical questions going deep into the science and ability to analyse data (they presented me with data and asked me to analyse it/design experiments etc)

I applied online. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (United States) in Feb 2021

Interview

Applied online and after two weeks I got an email to schedule a screening call with recruiter on zoom. Past that stage I was invited for virtual interview with the Associate Director. Interview questions were pretty standard about my research background and skills. After the interview I came to know that the Associate directors research papers got retracted because of scientific conduct. As I was not comfortable working with such people I withdrew my application. I'm still surprised that he is employed in a reputed company like Astrazeneca.
