- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cambridge Major Laboratories, Inc. (Germantown, WI) in July 2015.
This was a telephone interview. It was scheduled two days after I had applied for the position. The interviewer called from Wisconsin to the West Coast. Immediately, it was apparent that the quality of the telephone connection was very poor. Since I had already tested the connection on my end, I suggested that they do the same. Not only was there any improvement, but the interviewer admitted that other candidates had reported similar conditions. Can't this company afford a land-line? In addition to inquiring with colleagues about this company prior to the interview, I read reviews on GlassDoor, as well as miscellaneous research over the internet. The interviewer stated that they will be in contact next week, should a on-site interview be of interest to them. Hence I do (not yet) have an offer.
- The interviewer asked me about my experience in drug development. It was very apparent that she was simply reading wrote questions. I applied for this position because it only specified one prior year of industrial experience and none in drug development. Had the interviewer actually read my resume, then she would have known that I had no experience in this area. Hence, I conclude that she had not taken the time to read my resume in any detail. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cambridge Major Laboratories, Inc. (Milwaukee, WI) in July 2014.
They missed the scheduled phone interviews again and again. In the end, I got the on-site opportunity. Funny, they sent an email to cancel the interview as "the position is on hold". In my opinion, this is not a reliable company. Good luck!

I interviewed at Cambridge Major Laboratories, Inc. in February 2014.
The recruitment process is very straight forward with a telephone interview from a member of the HR department, followed by a telephone or in-person interview with the hiring manager, or possibly a panel. There are usually 3 interviews before a contingent offer is made, followed by a background check.
- Since the company is in the API (active pharmaceutical ingredients) industry, be prepared to share your education and experience in API. It seems most professional or technical job postings look for API industry experience. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cambridge Major Laboratories, Inc..
I was brought in for a site interview after a successful phone interview. Most of the people I spoke with used the opportunity to tell me how great they ( the person talking to me) were. There was very little mention about working as a team and trying to accomplish company goals. During my panel interview, most of the people were more concerned with their phone then they were listening to me answer their questions. Be prepared for the " me first" atmosphere if you go there for a visit.
- All of the questions were pretty standard, nothing too difficult. Be up-to-date with new FDA policies and new instrumentation used for process chemistry 1 Answer
