    Senior Program Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Moderna.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by recruiter. Recruiter was nice. Then, a call was setup to speak with the hiring manager. A date was scheduled but hiring manager didn't confirm so recruiter said to block out my schedule just in case. Hiring manager was late to the call and sounded very uninterested in learning more about my experiences. Tone was condescending and overall was not a good experience.

    Scientist Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Moderna (Cambridge, MA (US)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    I applied and heard back from HR in five days after submitting my application requesting a 15 minute phone screen. The HR rep was super nice and knowledgeable. We talked for over a half hour. The talk went so well she asked if I would like to talk to the hiring manager the next day via video call to discuss more of the science aspects of the role. I agreed and next day got to talk with the hiring manager for about a half hour. That interview also went well and the hiring manager asked if I would like to present a seminar to the group. I gladly accepted and waited for confirmation of date and time. There was some delays in scheduling the seminar because of scheduling conflicts on both ends so the seminar was not until 3 weeks later. I presented a 45 minute seminar (virtually) plus 15 mins for Q&A to a large number of team members. I then had about five 1-on-1 meetings with various managers, scientist level, and RA employees. All the interviewers were incredibly nice and thoughtful. Plenty of good scientific questions and general team and work style related questions. I was informed it was down to me and one other candidate. I did have to wait about another 3 weeks after my seminar interview to hear the final verdict, but HR did keep me in the loop during the longer than previously anticipated wait time. Ultimately I was offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a lot of science based questions relevant to my seminar. Also a lot of questions relating to the position I was interviewing for and how I would use my scientific skill set and knowledge to be successful in the role.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Moderna in August 2020.

    Interview

    Lovely experience talking to the director of manufacturing, and the hiring manager for my team. They asked basic questions about my experiences and my resume, and then the conversation flowed more casually. I asked questions regarding their experiences, and how I fit into the current culture and team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Moderna.

    Interview

    Two rounds of phone screening with HR and hiring manager.

    I was told there will be two round of onsite interviews. I only attended the first round. The interview consists of one-on-one interview with 6 interviewers (including directors and future team members). Some interviewers are friendly and asked a lot about my background. Some were obviously not interested (pretty sure they didn't take a look on my resume) and asked some behavioral questions. One try to ask me problem that they are dealing with. The whole process was okay.

    Then I was noticed by HR that I am rejected because I don't have enough experience for the role as a fresh grad.

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Moderna.

    Interview

    Phone interview screening with HR followed by in person interviews with numerous others. It was fairly thorough; I think my desired compensation was in excess of what they expected so it did not work out.
