Philadelphia, PA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline in February 2013.

Interview Details – I went through the application through the university career center and also their main website. After 2 weeks or so, I was contacted by the employers and was interviewed via phone. They are generally friendly, and ask questions that will possibly boost your confidence. It was not a tense interview, and the employers are only interested to know your level of enthusiasm.

Co-Op Interview

Co-Op
Collegeville, PA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline in April 2010.

Interview Details – I applied through my school and was contacted by telephone. I received an overview of the position and was asked some basic questions about my experience, resume, and skills. During the phone conversation I was asked to come in for an onsite interview. Once onsite, I met with various scientists throughout the day. It was all very informal and casual. I was asked the basic behavioral questions that people find online, but they were more interested in me just telling them about my skills & understanding of the position. Overall, it was really easy - they just wanted a competent co-op.

Interview Question – Describe enzyme / inhibitor relationships.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None.
