    Interview Details

    I applied in a resume drop on LinkedIn, and got a call about a week and a half later to set up an initial phone interview. About a week and a half after that, I was scheduled for an on-site visit that included 6 half hour interviews with all members of the department (and one interview with HR).

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Mylan Pharmaceuticals in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online in November, 2013. Had an HR phone screen within 2 weeks. Had a phone call with the hiring SVP a month later. He indicated someone would reach out to me the following week. A month later I was called in for face-to-face interviews. Arrived on site and learned that most of the interviews would be either video or phone. By lunch the schedule was completely changed. Had discussions with only three of the seven people on the interview forum. Was told I would be rescheduled as a "big meeting" was just called. Got an email a month later that they were continuing their search and no longer needed me. Learned from another source that funding for the position was frozen.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Mylan Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    The first round consisted of two 30-minute behavioral interviews. They were pretty basic and just went through my resume and asked me to explain my projects and experience in more detail. Then they asked a few behavioral questions about strengths and weaknesses. Both interviews were very similar but they were with different department heads.

    Senior Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morgantown, WV
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months - interviewed at Mylan Pharmaceuticals in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for an HR phone interview. The process was very straightforward, and the questions were similar to all the suggested ones that I found online. Next, about 3 weeks later, I was contacted for a phone interview with the hiring manager. This was more of a discussion of the company itself and what the position would entail. I was asked very few questions and they were all technical. I am now waiting to see if I receive an invitation to interview in person. The process was very straightforward.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was "tell me about yourself" because I always find this to be too open-ended and over the phone it is hard to tell if I am speaking for too long.   Answer Question

    4 one-hour inteviews with the marketing team, including the hiring manager, a senior product manager on another brand, a product manager on a different team and an HR person.

Why do you want to leave ____ company and why are you interested in our company?

    They got back to me every week which was a plus but did not really make a final decision until almost a month after they advised they would. I just didnt really enjoy being strung along.
