I applied online. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at Allergan (Santa Barbara, CA) in August 2013.
Quick Background: College graduate (2012), working part time for ~1 year. Applied in May, received a phone call/interview in July, interviewed on-site in August. I heavily prepare with areas of focus sent by Hiring Manager, questions posted online, and job requirements. Interviewers were very polite and professional. 1hr panel interview and 1hr 1:1 with HR. Questions were predetermined in packet and were complex in nature. All answers required a situation, action taken and result. My only grievance was with the length in time the process took. I also had to follow up twice to find out if I had received the job, to which I was sent a stock "pursued other candidates" reply.
- No question was too difficult. However, you NEED to extensively prepare and have a varied amount of answers (situation/action/result) for both positive and negative experiences. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Allergan (Santa Barbara, CA) in April 2013.
The first round is phone interview, with several programmers of the department; after three weeks the manager called me for an onsite interview, talked about some of the projects in university; the second day I met the director of the department and talk about SAS.

ok to fair. The place is nice, the people complain constantly about paperwork and reports. I believe this is typical in their field, but it still is tough to hear that constantly. Overall the people seemed good, a stable growing company is definitely a rare find these days.
