    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AstraZeneca.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application online. Approximately a week later I got what looked like a computer generated e-mail saying I was invited to have a phone interview. The phone interview was scheduled with an outsourced hiring company. The representative just asked about things on my resume. Did not really ask any difficult questions. Was not able to go into detail about the company.
