    Director, Market Research Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, DE (US)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Wilmington, DE (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    applied online and got to speak directly to the hiring manager after one round with HR.

    Then interviewed with a small panel in a tiny, uncomfortable conference room.

    As with most corporate interviews these days it was focused on the company's core values and was very STAR-based (behavioral). But, the questions had been developed by an outside consultant and even the panel members themselves admitted they couldn't decipher what exactly the questions were asking. After stumbling through a very disorienting battery of questions, I was glad to get out of there. The team exhibited no enthusiasm for the company overall, and really looked very misplaced even sitting and talking together. It was a very odd and uncomfortable atmosphere overall.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't really recall any specific questions verbatim, but most were behavioral - based (although in a very convoluted way)   1 Answer

    CRM Operations Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Wilmington, DE (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter in late October 2016. Setup phone screen quickly. Set up in person interview for early November and completed employee profile assessment before my on-site interview. Drove from central New Jersey to Delaware for the interview and met with two people in a group interview setting. Questions were normal experience based questions - "Tell us about an experience where you ___."

    Never heard back from them or the recruiter until I reached out this year and asked if there was any feedback. Was told there wasn't any feedback and they hired someone else. Very unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Wilmington, DE (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was professional. Everyone was courteous and very nice during the panel interview. The hiring manager was very nice.

    I applied online on January 19th. A phone screen was held February 15th. A panel interview in Wilmington was conducted March 16th. Finally, on April 27th, I called the hiring manager directly, and said the position is uncertain and hung up. The next day, I saw my status change online which said the position was closed.

    I am disappointed that I was not chosen for the position. Hopefully something in the future will pop up.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Wilmington, DE (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with Hiring Manager then in-person interview with Hiring Manager and peer. Phone interview had very basic questions. Live interview questions are based on their "values" and other standard behavioral questions. They require answers in STAR format. I recently interviewed for two separate positions. Both times I felt there was something lacking in the process, and the follow-up, despite having things in writing, was non-existent. I actually got an automated email saying the position was filled the day before one interview was scheduled but was able to confirm the interview. No offers yet but no communication either way despite follow-up.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Wilmington, DE (US)).

    Interview

    Found out about job through a recruiter. Phone screen with HR, then hiring manager a week later. Given a small packet via email describing STAR interview format prior to onsite interview. Had to fill in detailed job application online listing references, previous salaries, etc. prior to onsite. Onsite was a single one-hour panel with hiring manager and 2 other people I would potentially be working with. They read questions off a sheet and took note of my answers in 3 columns literally labeled situation, task/action, and result. Received feedback a few days later that I did not get the position. Form letter email that said they went with someone else came a few weeks after that.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a small packet via email describing STAR interview format prior to onsite interview. Don't ignore this! The questions they asked were on print outs so I think they were all from that packet.   1 Answer
