    Summer Intern Interview

    Interview Details

    Each individual department is responsible for hiring its own summer interns. The summer intern hiring process begins with submitting a resume into a general pool. What then happens is HR representatives will look over your experience and then forward your resume to the departments they think you will be able to contribute to. The departments will then contact you for a phone interview and then make their final decisions. The interview is usually conducted by whoever will be your direct manager.

    The interview is mostly based on your resume with a few "fit" questions sprinkled in. It definitely seemed heavily focused on whether or not my past experience would enable me to contribute to the proposed intern project.

    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Pfizer in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a phone call a few weeks later. The lab manager just asked me a few questions about basic lab science (seemed like she just wanted to see if I paid any attention in class) and why I was interested in the position. It seemed like she was really busy because she was slow getting back to me, and even though I did great with all of her questions she said they decided to go with a local candidate instead.
