I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at AstraZeneca in May 2011.
Interview Details – STAR format interview. First interview was 1:1 which was conducted on campus. Weeks later a panel interview was held where I met with two 3person panels. I was offered the position verbally the following day, but the formal offer did not come for weeks. Drug screening was a hair follicle drug test that went back over 90days.
Negotiation Details – No room for negotiation as they offered you a company car, phone, and laptop.
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AstraZeneca in October 2010.
Interview Details – The first interview was standard. Application was received immediately after phone interview.
2 weeks later I received a e-mail to schedule a face to face interview.
The day of my interview HR called and told me I was the final interview for round 2, requesting if I could change an interview time within 2 hours of my interview so the manager could go home early.
During the interview the hiring manager stated she had many more interviews for round 2 that day. I was surprised by the lack of communication.
I found HR to be extremely nice. The managers as well as the interview process in general was extremely laid back relative to other pharmaceutical company face to face interviews. In my experience, they did not use pressure interview tactics.
Face to face interview lasted 2.5 hours and questions were in the standard STAR format.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at AstraZeneca in September 2010.
Interview Details – The AstraZeneca phone interview was a pleasant experience. With in-depth situational questions, it is important to have practiced interview questions online before-hand. Since AstraZeneca outsources their telephone screening process, there is a chance that your resume may not make it to the Hiring Manager's inbox. I was asked to move on to step two of the interview; however, someone else was hired before I had an opportunity for a face-to-face interview.
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AstraZeneca in March 2010.
Interview Details – went well. I was recruited by a university programmer.
