    GOLD Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Catalent Pharma in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had been asked for an On Campus Interview after speaking to Catalent at a Career Fair.

    I was interviewed by two current GOLD Associates. They both seemed very exhausted and disinterested in what I had to say. They didn't even have my resume on hand which gave me the impression they didn't do their homework or even know who I am. Luckily, I had copies of my resume with me.

    The questions were fairly easy, mostly behavioral. So I talked about experiences that expressed how I dealt with certain situations and showcased my leadership skills.It was mostly one interviewer that asked the questions. The other one seemed to stare of into space.

    When it was my turn to ask them questions, they kept listing all the responsibilities they had to do and how challenging it was. I have no problem with that and I appreciate their candid honesty but it came off in a very unappealing way. It just seemed like they lacked passion in what they do which is a turn off when you're trying to make the interviewee interested in the job. At some point, I asked them a question regarding how this helps their long term career and they had a lot of trouble answering it.

    Overall, I didn't like the way they represented themselves of the company. A week and a half later, I got an email saying that I didn't make it to the second round of interviews.

    Supply Chain Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Catalent Pharma in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted through recruiter on LinkedIn then initial phone interview with HR. Skype interview with two more people before interviewing on site. On site interview lasted 6 hours and met with 8 people. It seemed everyone was up front and honest about what was expected and what issues were being faced. I got the impression that they interviewed many candidates but couldn't find the right fit. One thing that stuck with me that I realized after the interview was that I don't think anyone smiled or looked like they had a good time while at work. I thought it was great that I was able to meet and be interviewed by some of the employees that report into the position. Usually direct reports are not part of the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing that really stood out. Standard interview questions. Not many of the typical questions like give me an example of...or tell me about a time... More conversation questions to gauge fit.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Catalent Pharma.

    Interview Details

    There are different levels of interviews for this position. Recruiting usually takes place at Career fairs as they target new graduates.I went through 3 phases of the interviewing process, at the end of the phone interview before the on site interview I requested information regarding salary and education levels which led to my cut off from the on site interview as I would require a higher salary based on education level. The interviews are geared towards finding out managerial capabilities, interpersonal skills as well as willingness to travel.

    Applied at university career fair. Received phone call a few days later asking for an on-campus follow-up interview. I was interviewed by two people - the rep I spoke to at the fair and a senior director. The interview itself wasn't too bad. They were friendly and it was very conversational.
