    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NAMSA.

    Interview

    Initial telephonic from HR, basic questions, asked a background, skill sets. After that was called for face interview. General questions, nothing out of the ordinary. Gave a lab tour after that, introduced to some lab associates, Process was pretty fast after face interview gave offer within week and a half.

    Medical Research Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at NAMSA (Northwood, OH).

    Interview

    Phone screening with pretty basic questions about past positions, salary expectations, and job requirements. This was followed by an on-site interview with the hiring manager and HR manager, really just so they could get a good feel for me as an applicant, they seemed to already know if they thought I was qualified for the position. It took about 6 weeks for them to then go through the background check and reference check before making an offer contingent on passing a drug test.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No room for negotiation. It was the end of the fiscal year so there was no wiggle room for relocation or salary negotiation, it was take it or leave it.
