Process Design Engineer Interview

Process Design Engineer
Rancho Cucamonga, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Amphastar in July 2012.

Interview Details – Saw an ad on Craigslist. Submitted resume via e-mail. I was contacted about an interview at their Rancho Cucamonga offices by phone.

The interview was fairly straightforward behavioral questions. The process design manager gave the interview.

This was followed by a short test involving a fairly simple mass balance question. While it seemed a bit complicated, there was just a lot of unnecessary information.

Interview Question – A false pharmaceutical synthesis process was described involving hemoglobin and iron. The question asked to track what % of iron was lost throughout the process, which involved filtration, washing, etc. The entire question was a simple mass balance that required the test taker to sort out only the necessary information and use a bit of linearization and extrapolation.   Answer Question
