    Clinical Research - Field Based Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Princeton, NJ (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novo Nordisk (Princeton, NJ (US)).

    Interview

    I applied online and I received an email about 2 weeks later to set of an initial phone interview with the HR recruiter. About 2 days after the phone interview I was contacted to come to Princeton, NJ for a 3 hour face-to face interview and my travel was arranged that same day. During the face-to-face interview I met with 5 people for 30-45 minutes each. Each person asks 2 specific questions, as well as some additional questions of their own. The main questions all related to the Novo Way, similar to the type of questions you would encounter during an annual performance review. Everyone was very friendly and the interviews had a relaxed atmosphere.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Novo Nordisk (Edison, NJ (US)).

    Interview

    I was bridged for a newly posted position and was called in for an interview. I met with the panel of people for the direct team. Pleasant and warm was my first impression.

    The last person I met with was HR. Personable guy who shared with me that I should be hearing some rough decisions by the end of day if not the following morning. I gave it about a few more days, past the weekend, and received no update. I contacted this guy about 3 times within an appropriate time frame post interview. I heard no replies.
    I reached out to the coordinator who facilitated the interview and her response included him on.

    Still no reply. I reached out to the person who referred me with a thank you note and assumed the position was filled.

    Don’t wait for HR to contact you. If you haven’t received word in 3 weeks tops, move on.
