Bio-pharmaceutical Manufacturing Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in West Conshohocken, PA (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (West Conshohocken, PA (US)) in August 2010.

Interview

Applied online, had a ten minute phone interview and then 1:1 interviews with two members of the hiring group. Phone interview gathered more details on job history and asked if I had experience with some specific requirements (e.g. technical writing) for the position. Both 1:1 interviews were done within a 30-45 minute period.

Interview Questions

  • Nothing unusual or difficult here. Mostly behavior based questions and a few questions to assess technical knowledge.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Conshohocken, PA (US)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Contactacted by outside recruiter. About 6 weeks later called in for an on-site interview. You'll probably be competitive for 1 position although they say more than one position is available. I was interviewed by 4 employees (one on one) followed by a plant tour.i heard back from my contractor the night after the interview that they wanted me to work with them. 3 more weeks past before they offered the position/sign contract. All your references will be contacted and asked intrusive questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline.

    Interview

    I was reached out by a contractor and went through an on-site interview in one of the locations in PA. Similar as to what you may have read from others, it first was a group interview (activity-like) and if they see you are fit, you'll continue on to the next part which is like a speed-dating but more of an interview.

    There are some who said it was hard, though in my perspective, it was more because of nerves and it was fast so I didn't think it was that hard to begin with. My advice to you is that be confident, passionate, respectful and kind to the interviewers and those who are going through the same process as you and ask lots of questions! They definitely notice the little to big things :)

    Interview Questions

    • Towards the end, the interviewers begin to ask behavioral like questions like "What is tolerance to you?" and may quickly jump to questions like "Describe this event and what you did"   Answer Question
