    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (London, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process had 7 stages. First, you get registered online and you need complete with personal details and background information. The second stage is the application form where you repeat some of the information from the first stage, but more detailed. You also need to submit 2 compositions (max 300 words) about an experience and what skills you have developed from it and anything you consider relevant about yourself. The next stage is the online assessment with videos about different situations (you hear a colleague gossiping about another, you have the chance to bribe a policeman and so on) and multiple answers about how would you act in such a situation. At this stage, they assess your trustworthiness. Plus you have about 20 exercises with data to interpret (it was my first time and it seemed quite hard). The next stage is 2 motivational questions (max 300 words) about your motivation to work for GSK and how would you contribute to their team. After completing the fourth stage I waited for about a month and received an invitation for the video interview. You have only 7 questions (the last 2 questions were theoretical questions about the manufacturing process of the tablets), for each question 1 minute to prepare and 3 minutes to record. If you have not prepared beforehand a list of the 30 most possible question interview and not rehearsed the answers in the mirror you would blow away your chance for the assessment center. The questions are not easy and you need a lot of experience for them to be satisfied with your answer. Plus, you receive feedback after each stage. For the video interview, I had a problem with the internet connection and they had to reset my interview 4 times. Every time I had a problem I called them and the recruitment team was really helpful. They respond almost instantly to your emails. Unfortunately, I did not receive an invitation to the assessment center. Overall it was a great experience.

    The application was multistage. First you answer a competency question and fill in other basic information, then comes the SJTs and the maths test in a video format. After that there is a video assessment by LaunchPad.

    Interview

    Quite long. You are asked for lots of information, but not about your opinion, attitude, personal point of view or whatever. The online assessment was interesting, but everything is really impersonal. Personal attitude made selection procedure of other companies much more pleasant, so I did not want to continue in this one.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Typical application process of CV and covering letter, followed by psychometric tests. Next stage was video interview mainly comprised of competency questions and a couple of technical questions. Final stage was assessment day which was a business scenario, group exercise, presentation we had been told to prepare and further competency and technical interview. Feedback was quickly provided, however some of the feedback didn't make sense and was incorrect, such as slides for presentation not matching what I was saying, when I was expanding on what the slides said throughout presentation.
