Scientist Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline in April 2014.
Interview Details – One 30-min HR phone screening. One week later received onsite interview invitation. First, a 60-min HR interview full of behavior questions with hiring manager present. Then, a 30-min technical presentation, followed by one-hour panel discussion. Lab tours, lunch. Finally, three 30-min one-to-one interview.
Interview Question – The one-hour interview with HR is full of crap: what's your motivation? How do you handle difficult people? and so on. You can nail these questions by preparing stories for these behavioral questions. Just Google it View Answer

Scientist Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline in November 2011.
Interview Details – Applied online at gsk.com. Was contacted several weeks later by team manager and did a phone interview. Next week I was contacted to set up a onsite interview. Onsite interview consisted of 3 1on1 interviews and then a lunch with the group. Following week had a phone interview with HR. Week later same HR rep offered the job. Overall an awesome process. Everyone was so nice and made you feel that you were a true candidate.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had a disagreement with a coworker and how you resolved it. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Did not negotiated. Job offer was fair and I'm 6 months out of grad school.
