Operations Specialist Interview

Operations Specialist
Gaithersburg, MD

I applied through a recruiter and 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 Question – 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

Associate Scientist I/II
Gaithersburg, MD

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MedImmune in May 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online and received and email confirmation for submitting an application for the position. Got contacted via email to schedule a phone interview few days later. Next day after a phone interview that lasted about 30 min I received an invitation to fill out an employment application. The day after a hiring manager contacted me for a secondary interview. Overall, both interviewers were nice and elaborate on what they are looking for. No games.

MS&T Intern Interview

MS&T Intern
Frederick, MD

I applied online and 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 Question – 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

Engineer
Gaithersburg, MD

I applied through a staffing agency and 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.

Interview Question – SCCM. I have no SCCM experience and they were hoping to hire someone with it.   Answer Question

I applied through other source and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at MedImmune in June 2010.

Interview Details – The process was conducted by Korn Ferry. The required an online test, more of a personality assessment. I then interviewed with my direct supervisor and others in the department with whom I would be interacting. Since the position would be serving other departments as well, I interviewed with those departments.
