    Data Scientist, Real World Evidence Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Gaithersburg, MD (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    The first interview was with HR. Two weeks later the second interview was with the hiring manager. Another three weeks later, I was asked to come for 2 hour onsite interview. There were behavioral and technical questions. Behavioral questions were related to AZ's value/mission statement. Overall interview was fine but one of the interviewers kept interrupting me while I was answering the question which made my explanation difficult. My interview was scheduled at 12:00 noon - 02:00 pm. The person who was responsible to walk me to the interview room showed up 10 minutes late. Also, Typically other companies take candidates for lunch or offer something to eat or drink especially when the interview is scheduled during the lunchtime. Nothing was offered.

    Associate Process Leader Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Macclesfield, England) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Went to an Assessment Centre for the APL role on offer at AZ's site in Macclesfield. Day consisted of a Values interview (competency questions based around AZ's 5 values), a technical interview (an hours preparation for some technical manufacturing questions and a 10 minute presentation), and a standard group exercise.

    Whilst I didn't get the job it was a good experience to have. Felt a bit overwhelmed by the number of assessors (nearly twice as many as candidates there) and am still awaiting feedback. Would reapply if given the opportunity seems like an amazing role to get.
