    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MedImmune (Gaithersburg, MD) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The dynamic of my interview day with MedImmune included a first panel interview with the Quality Control team, a tour of the lab, and lastly, a second panel interview with the Product Management team.

    The first interview did not go smoothly. Two of the three women were 10 minutes late, and all three women were very unprepared. It was apparent that this was their first time seeing my resume and that they were not used to working as HR as they spend most of the interview quietly staring at my resume. They had few questions prepared so they quickly resorted to repeatedly asking me if I had any questions for them.

    During the lab tour, I found the facility very impressive. Though my tour guide was difficult to understand and I had to ask her to repeat herself many times, she was very thorough with the tour. Everyone I met in the lab was very friendly.

    The second interview went better than the first though the third interviewer failed to show up. The other two interviewers were genuinely seemed interested in the hiring process and had appropriate questions prepared.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at MedImmune (Gaithersburg, MD) in June 2014.

    Interview

    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

    Interview

    I had applied to many of the internships on the online application through the company, and was called for an informal HR screening interview for two of them. But for the one that I ended up receiving, the hiring manager emailed me directly, asking to set up a phone interview (I was not in the area at the time). We talked for about 45 minutes about general questions, details on my resume, as well as more in depth questions about my laboratory and scientific experience in undergrad and past internships.

    Interview

    I had 3 phone interviews with different members of the team. The interviewer seemed very interested but no offer after 3rd phone interview. I did not realize that the offer/rejection would be posted online, so after not hearing back from anyone after a while, I emailed them with no response. Then I checked the website and there was my rejection.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MedImmune (Frederick, MD) in March 2014.

    Interview

    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

    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).
