    CGMP Quality Assurance Associate I Interview

    Interview Details

    I had two different interviews one was over the phone and the other was in person. The one in person was okay. I showed up ~10 minutes early and my interviewer was almost an hour late because they forgot about me. The interview with my direct supervisor was very brief and then the director interviewed me more thoroughly and was pretty relaxed so we talked about our interests and hobbies before I left.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions were pretty easy but the most in depth one asked me to detail how I would deal with confrontation from upper level co-workers.   Answer Question

    Relaxed interview with department manager. Made me feel comfortable and just asked general questions about past job experiences.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ABC Laboratories.

    Interview Details

    It went really well. I was interviewed by 6 people including colleagues at lunch.
    Mostly, two or three people will make the final decision. It is very important to get good impression at your team lead (usually who interviews over telephone).
    There was a director in the interview panel and talks more about the company profile.

    Interview Questions
    • Talking about the future goals, since I have more than three different projects in my resume.   Answer Question

    Analytical Chemistry Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at ABC Laboratories in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Met with HR representative, hiring manager, and two employees under the hiring manager. The interview was what I would consider very typical for a CRO business. Questions were focused on determining background/experience, technical knowledge, and personality. One memorable question was "how do you handle stress."

    The interview felt very positive, and I had high expectations of receiving an offer, though in the end I was told the position was closed unfilled. Things are difficult in the industry all around, so this is not a great shock.

    They will ask about changelling situations and how you handled them, what were the outcomes?
    They will also ask you about why you feel that working for ABC Labs would be rewarding for you (make sure you know what industries they go into), and explain why pharmaceuticals, toxicology, agri, is relevant to you - blah, blah, blah.
