    Manager, PM Corporate Projects Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockville, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockville, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Emergent BioSolutions in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Quick contact by HR after applying on-line. Quick progression to on-site interview. Horrible follow-up. Despite several attempts to get a status update. Simply no communication was made. You should ask yourself, do you really want to work for a company that treats interview candidates like that?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Emergent BioSolutions in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Communications were quick. There was quick action to move the hiring process forward. Clear instructions were given about what to expect during the interview. Hiring manager was very affable. The group / team meeting went well and a reasonable offer was also made. When I had to decline to offer due to personal reasons, the hiring manager again was very understanding of the decision. Overall, a good experience.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lansing, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lansing, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Emergent BioSolutions in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    HR makes initial contact. Hiring manager had phone interview. Communication wasn't very smooth at times from the company. Was not told to bring drivers license to the reception desk (would not let me in without it). Was not told where to park - a little tricky to find. Interview was relaxed. Dress policy on Friday (day of interview) is much more relaxed than on M-Thurs. Interviewed with several people, all one on one.

    Interview Questions
    • No particularly surprising questions - asked about my experience, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation can be possible, decide what items are most important and ask about them.
