    I have been working at Almac Group full-time (More than a year)


    Almac is a great company with a distinctively friendly informal culture. What surprised me when joining was the level of effort to support that fellow colleagues give - some truly great people working for Almac across the globe


    Very client focussed which means you have to be ready to go that extra mile. not a Con as such, but if that's not for you then maybe Almac is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    keep it up and don't lose the culture.

    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Belfast, Northern Ireland
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Almac Group (Belfast, Northern Ireland) in February 2015.


    An initial phone interview screening process that focused on an understanding of GMP/GLP/PPE/COSHH etc, and some soft "tell me about a time" questions. This was followed by a two panel interview that involved some technical questions regarding calculating and making up standard solutions, and questions that focused on the individual, i.e. Why do you want to work for Almac? What can you tell me about Almac? Then more specific questions relative to the position you are interviewing for, so be sure to read the job description!

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about GMP/GLP/PPE/COSHH   Answer Question
    • What do you know about Almac?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time you had to plan something, how did you carry it out and what was the outcome?   Answer Question
    • How to make up a standard solution by calculating the weight of substance required.   Answer Question
    • Calculate volume of acid required to make up a standard solution using weight and density.   Answer Question


    Fair, there may be some wiggle room depending on your experience, although the salaries are very competitive at Almac.
