I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 8 years)
Great benefits and overall atmosphere. Very diverse, flexible work schedule and lots of opportunities to grow
Very very fast paced environment
I applied online. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Gaithersburg, MD (US)).
HR phone interview screen, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager a few days later. The actual in person interview was almost a month later and 5 hours long. I thought the long interview was slightly unnecessary, some of the people I had to meet with were recent hires who were fresh out of college and didn't really know what to ask me. The rest of the interview was pretty typical- some STAR type questions and some about technical skills, past experience. The people were nice and interview wasn't too stressful. The complain I have is about Medimmune HR or whatever company they outsource recruiting to- they are terrible about providing candidates any sort of feedback post-interview. Most other big firms I've ever interviewed at, at least had the courtesy to follow up with an email or a letter that I didn't receive an offer, I didn't hear anything back at all, except for 5 months later when my status on the applicant website was updated to say the position was no open. Definitely not the right way to treat candidates when you're in the biotech world and trying to recruit the best, and not the best way to build a company's image or impression.
