    Lab Technician Interview

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

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Negotiation

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