Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA) in September 2012.

Interview

Hiring manager emailed me directly, not HR. Had a few conversations over the phone before being invited for the interview. Interview was 1-1/2 days, and met with 10-15 people. Long interview, but all were very polite, and nobody really tried to test or ask very difficult questions.

Interview Questions

  • Why are you applying to this job, since your background is much different   1 Answer

Negotiation

They make good offers, and don't negotiate. If you try to come back to get the offer increased, HR just says that the offer is very good, and they can't do any better.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Amgen in February 2009.

    Interview

    typically a full day of interviews with 7 to 8 people. Tiring by end of day. Feels like they want people who are already doing the job and are willing to take a lateral. They were not very receptive to people who wanted to "stretch" into a new grade level. Highly matrixed company so lots of different functions were involved in the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    almost no negotiation. was told to take it or leave it.
