    IT Graduate Program Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 months - interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline.

    Interview Details

    First online application with a few questions, nothing terrible. Then a video interview which is very awkward.

    Then expect a long wait time till you receive an invite to an assessment centre. I didnt hear back for three months and know of people who didnt hear back for 5/6 months.

    Assessment day was hard. Nice facilities however some of the GSK people were quite rude so made it hard to enjoy yourself.

    Interview Questions
    • The process was very straightforward and smooth, focusing on research skills. No difficult or unexpected question asked.   Answer Question
