    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Novo Nordisk (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then an offer to interview out of town; everyone was professional during the interview; poor follow up after the interview. I had to continue to call and email the recruiter for him to finally inform me days later that I was not chosen. It was a complete disregard for the" loser," I guess. It disappointed me in how it ended. Everything happens for a reason, so I am okay for not being hired. I have already accepted another position with a teaching hospital.

    I think once you did phone interview, you will be called in. I did not like the interviewer because she was very distant and cold. She was not very friendly.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Novo Nordisk in September 2014.

    Interview

    I posted my resume in different website. I assumed that Novo Nordisk is able to see it. And they texted me a message and appointed an online interview for me. I installed my yahoo message and put the interviewer's ID, he showed up within 10 mins even in the evening. Then he briefly described job duties and company information. For the question section, it is pretty easy. Later on, I was waiting on line. 10 mins later, He told me that I got the job. Then start asking my personal information, such as, address, name, phone number, and told me that they will mail the check to me to buy the home office equipments. Is it a spasm? Did anybody have a same experience. It is too good to believe.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Novo Nordisk in August 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email explaining that my application had been approved and that I was going to have an interview at 9AM via Yahoo Instant Messenger. I started the conversation at my appointment time and waited 30 minutes, but the interviewer never responded. I emailed my interviewer, explaining how it was unfortunate that we were unable to connect at my appointment time. Her response was that she was now online and waiting to hold my interview. Once again, I signed on and messaged my interviewer. My messages went unanswered for over an hour. I, again, emailed my interviewer, asking her to please contact me via phone when she was available, and that I would do whatever I needed to make myself available.

    Overall, it was a very unprofessional experience. It felt that, though I was the only one to show up for my interview appointment, I was going to have to spend the entire day sitting at my computer, waiting for my interviewer to message me. That's just unprofessional and borderline rude.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Novo Nordisk (Ashburn, VA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for a position through TalentDesk.com for another company. I assume , Novo Nordisk was able to see my resume and contacted me to conduct an online Yahoo IM interview with Jeff Frazier. I went through the chat interview and was offered the position afterwards. The interview took about 1 hour to complete. I was a little hesitant because this was not the job I originally applied to and it was not the same company. Also, I was not able to find other employees who reviewed the company that worked form home, so we'll see how this goes.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Novo Nordisk.

    Interview

    I was called by a scheduler who set up my appointment time and emailed me the individuals I would be interviewing with. When I arrived at the hotel lobby, I was promptly greeted by one of the 3 individuals I was to be interviewing with, 2 RBDs and 1 HR person. There was a change in schedule, so the process didn't go as the schedule showed. I had passed the phone screen and was very clear about my background, however when I interviewed in person, there was a discrepancy. The website stated some requirements that were not accurate and the interviewers basically stated that I did not have the qualifications, even thought the JD on the website and the phone interview were aware. I had a copy of the JD and explained this to the interviewers, but I felt that I was digging out of a hole at that point.
