    Associate Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Pfizer.

    Interview Details

    This was a contract position. Initial communication was with contracting agency who only asked general questions about skills and experience. I had a 20 minute phone interview with a group of scientists in the department I would be working in. They mostly asked technical questions about SDS-PAGE and SEC.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions were asked. I suspect they are were mostly trying to find out how many of the techniques you list on your resume you actually understand...and how many you "did one time in a lab class" Make sure you have some theoretical understanding of how the techniques you supposedly "know" work, and not just be able to set it up and get the data.   Answer Question
