    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Emergent BioSolutions (Lansing, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by an on-site interview. The on-site interview included a tour of the facilities and manufacturing plant. Interview lasted about 2-3 hours. For the most part, was 2 on 1 with basic STAR based questions. It was a pretty laid back interview and didn't feel uncomfortable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Emergent BioSolutions (Rockville, MD) in July 2014.

    Interview

    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?

    Project Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Emergent BioSolutions (Lansing, MI) in December 2008.

    Interview

    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

    Negotiation can be possible, decide what items are most important and ask about them.
