    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Eli Lilly and Company in October 2017.

    Interview

    I met with recruiters at a career fair on campus. I later applied through a campus recruiting website and was contacted for an on campus interview. The campus interview focused on behavioral questions--some of which I found challenging. I was later sent a computer generated email notifying me I would not be moving forward. Fun fact: 2 days after they rejected me they sent an email to me about how they are a top scientific employer-- very strange company.
