    Operations Specialist Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at MedImmune in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was on phone through Aerotek, the recruiter determined I had the requisite knowledge and education to continue on to the interview stage. I was called in after a few days for an interview with the hiring manager. The Lead Scientist was very knowledgeable and right after I walked in started discussing the work they were doing and advances they had made. After this I was passed off to 2 other people in the team and the interview questions started.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were mostly non-technical. They were more scenario based, (How would you go about determining the source of error or contamination that occurred in the pipeline). My guess is this was how this particular group determined who would be a fit for them.   Answer Question

    MS&T Intern Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at MedImmune in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for two different intern positions at MedImmune, both interviews occurred within 3 weeks of submitting my resume online. Normally, they set up a preinterview with someone based out of the UK who screens and makes sure that you match the description on your resume. Then, you interview with the hiring manager and a coworker. If you are sufficiently close, they may ask you to come in person for the interview, but I did it over the phone. I talked about my past experience and why I thought I would be a good fit, and there weren't that many questions. It flowed more like a conversation than and interview. I followed up two days later and was offered the job within a week.

    Interview Questions
    • How soon they would need to make an offer in order for me to stop considering my other options/who else I was interviewing with.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As an intern, you really can't negotiate much. You are given possible start dates based on when they do new hire training (every other week) and interns have a set salary that they confirm is OK with you during the prescreen interview, and isn't negotiable (at least for undergrads).

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gaithersburg, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at MedImmune in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The company overall is very relaxed. Casual Fridays is pretty much T-shirt day. The hiring and interview process reflects this. I interviewed with two technical people who obviously knew what they were talking about and gave me a run for my money. They asked me a lot of good questions concerning my previous experience and how I foresee using them in the new role. They also did a great job of explaining what they are looking for as well as what they expect.
