    Operational Excellence Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at GSK Consumer Healthcare in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    There were two interviews. The first was over the phone only, and the second was a video conference with my immediate supervisor. Both times, my answers were recorded so that their supervisor could hear my answers if they chose. The questions were a mix of STAR (situation, task, action, result) and basic Lean Manufacturing vocabulary, such as "What does Takt mean?" or "Kaizen" etc.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected task in the video interview was when I was emailed a set of intentionally incomplete instructions to make a paper airplane. I was supposed to make it during the video conference to see if I was able to solve it on my own, or ask questions etc.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. I was paid through a temp agency (ZeroChaos.)

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Parsippany, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 months - interviewed at GSK Consumer Healthcare in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Brought in for 3-4 interviews; Each time meeting with the next layer of HR and/or management. Basic STAR test questions and thorough interview process. Tests involved personality testing, IQ testing and drug testing - all pretty basic stuff. The hiring process was a bit long and drawn out - taking almost 4 months to complete. To be fair this was partially due to the fact that some management were based in the UK and I was interviewing from out of state, making some of the logistics a bit challenging at times.

    Interview Questions
    • No real unexpected questions - but generally asked if you were faced with a situation in which management didn't agree with a decision you made or point of view that you believe is right - how would you/did you handle it?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Fairly standard - back and forth a few times to arrive at a salary (I was recruited) -
    Also negotiated a signing bonus which is available if they want you bad enough. The negotiation phase involved relocation, salary and signing bonus. Benefits offered were very good - Stock options (at the time - since done away with), restricted stock (3 year vesting period), pension, full medical, dental and vision, life insurance and 401K - all in all the package offered was very generous and robust.
