    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline.

    Interview

    The worst interview experience ever. I don't know if they recruit people through recruiting company or what, the people who gave a call today is super unprofessional. They said my name wrong twice and tell me to prepare for background question, really personal offensive question. I felt really uncomfortable, i interviewed with a lot of company before, none of them ask me 'From June 2017 to August 2017, tell me what did you do?'

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline.

    Interview

    I applied online first - they had some Future Leaders specific questions in addition to requiring your CV/Resume and Cover Letter. Afterwards, I got an email to complete an aptitude test which they said would take about an hour but ended up being like 2-2.5 hours. I got phone screened a month later, and invited to the assessment center, which was a great experience but very difficult.
