    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

    PDI contract, after 1 yr, hired on at AZ. Rare, but if you really push to shine, do as much or more that the AZ reps do, you will be noticed, not treated as a contract team member. You have to work to earn it!
