Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gaithersburg, MD (US)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Gaithersburg, MD (US)) in October 2019.

Interview

Applied in July 2019 and got phone screened by the hiring manager in early Oct. I was then invited to a in-person interview with 5 senior -level executives in late Oct. This was scheduled to be 1:1 interviews abut the 3rd interview went a little long because they insisted we go to lunch and interview while we dined and there were long lines. In any case, the 4th and 5th interviews got combined and the interview atmosphere was quite awkward since I could tell the dynamic between the 2 folks was not quite at par. They were uncomfortable seating next to and listening to each other (later realized that one was the boss of the other). Nevertheless they peppered me with all sorts of skill-based qstns centered on their Values and Behaviors which I (thought) had prepared for. I never did hear back from them even after following up; not even a rejection email or a response to my thank you note. Quite strange.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca.

    Interview

    Applied for a position and was contacted for a phone screen in less than a week. General questions about your résumé, background, work experience, salary requirements, accomplishments and relevant experience to the position. There were a few behavioral based questions and a question asking to define being Ethical and examples of how you execute it. Very comfortable interview with HR rep, was approachable and not intimidating.

    After a successful phone screen and completing a post phone screen application almost two weeks later I received an email of declining my candidacy in moving forward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Waltham, MA (US)) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Various phone calls to team members - they are so interested in you so then you go in for a day and more questions and they are all impressed. Then you wait and wait. Follow up. Still no word. Then get a automated email stating you are not hired. Have the decency to send a personal email

    Phone interview

    The recruiter was dismissive and made it clear from the first email that the recruiting experience would be unpleasant (e.g. not taking my name in emails / on call, not listening properly). I would hesitate to apply to a company that does not respect potential talent.
