Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Waltham, MA (US)) in April 2015.

Interview

I got a call directly from HR to schedule a phone interview. Two weeks after the phone interview, I was invited to an on site interview.

During the on site interview, I was told to give a presentation about my PhD research work. After the presentation, there was a technical interview, which they asked my questions from the papers they sent over to me before hand. All tough and brain storming questions. After the technical interview, there were a behavioral interview section and lab tours. The on site interview took about 5 hours total. Everyone I met was really friendly and nice.

Interview Questions

  • They gave me a proposed project and asked me how I would design experiments to tackle the questions during phone interview. Same project and more in-depth questions were asked during on-site interview.   Answer Question

I was invited for a phone interview where I had to present my work related to the job I applied for. The questions on the interview were very technical and related to specific details of my work. I was asked mainly about the techniques I have hands-on experience with.
