    Senior Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United Kingdom
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (United Kingdom) in Nov 2020


    A very nice interview process, with about a month from my initial application to offer. Everyone was very friendly and kept regularly in contact to keep me updated.

    Began with a 15 minute phone screen (nothing to worry about, they are just checking you are eligible to work/able to relocate if needed etc).

    Then had the interview. It was a panel interview lasting 2.5 hours. The first step was a 30 minute presentation, followed by a 45 minute technical interview (this was quite challenging!) and finally 45 minute values interview.

    One question on each of the 5 AstraZeneca Values -When have you had to make a difficult decision where you were met with resistance? Technical questions going deep into the science and ability to analyse data (they presented me with data and asked me to analyse it/design experiments etc)

What is health insurance like at AstraZeneca?

...You work rotating 12 hr shifts which makes it hard to have a good work life balance, they mostly hire from recruiting agencies and you have no holiday pay, no accumulated vacation, sick time or health insurance etc. for up to and over a year in some instances and a lot of management politics....
