    Associate Director, Systems Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chadds Ford, PA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Incyte (Chadds Ford, PA (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Went through 3rd party recruiting agency. Mistake was that this recruitment agency didn't have an exclusive role for recruiting the position. Agency was excellent at preparing me for the role however client was still collecting resumes internally as well as from their own website. Unless external recruitments solely recruit for a position, not worth it. Employers have to pay 20% finders fee plus your salary. Too high a charge.
    Interview was first over the phone and then a full day at the facility. After speaking with 6 key managers, same question came up - how do you handle conflict. Clearly, there are issues happening internally. Additionally one of my interviewes outright told me management was a huge problem that is getting resolved now. Yikes! Lastly, they seeems quite lost, especially in IT, making some poor choices so far; extremely expensive mistakes that have really no recourse. That's going to be a big job for one person.
    After spending 2 months waiting for the interview process and all day onsite with 6-7 people, no feedback was given.
    Looking for a culture fit instead of skills fit. All with big pharma backgrounds.

    30 minute phone interview at first, where interviewer introduced the company and their main therapeutic areas, went through my CV and asked several behavioral questions. I was then brought onsite a month later, where I was asked several detailed questions pertaining to survival analysis and study designs used in previous projects. Need to be up to speed with respect to survival analysis and experimental design.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Incyte (Wilmington, DE (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview, the manager called me and she wanted to know what i had done for my last job. She wanted specific details to see if I was ready for the job. But the questions she asked is vague. For example, rank your skill level in Macro. It is hard to say. I think the best way should be tested in programming directly.
