    Diabetes Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Jersey City, NJ

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter to do a multi-person interview at a Hyatt hotel. Was basically a cattle call type set-up with tons of people being shifted to HR, marketing and management in different areas of the hotel. Very unorganized and highly unprofessional. Final IV with manager was a sad joke.

    Manufacturing Technician I Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    You pretty much need to come in as a temporary worker to get hired. Then you are hired into whatever position you came in to. Hiring process itself was smooth. Interview was as I expected. It helps when you know the people you are interviewing with and know you are qualified for the position..

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate and I wish I had. They brought me in low. Disappointing. With all my previous experience in pharmaceuticals (but not on the manufacturing end) I thought I might warrant a better rate.

    Senior Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Started with a few phone interviews, then walked in for several 1:1's. Basic questions based on the resume, followed by analytical questions. (What would you do if...). Some of the questions were repetitive, and the interviews became redundant having to go through the resume with each of the interviewers. Everyone was nice, however each manager wanted a different profile, and only one hire.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    The people were thorough in their interview process. They asked good technical and background questions designed to evaluate whether my experience was a good match for the company. Senior management questions were generally less probing, surprisingly enough, but they were interested in how I would work out with the subordinates.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    I first met with the hiring manager who asked me general questions about why I wanted the positions, why Amylin, etc. Next, I met with the direct supervisor who asked questions about my resume. He gave a hypothetical situation about testing in product development and asked what direction I would take.
