    Scientist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    Seems to be a standard interview process. I submitted my Resume on line. One month later, initial contacts by HR and then followed by a 30 min phone interview from the hiring manager. On-site interview one month later, presentation/seminar and interviewed with ~10 people from management team and lunch with potential co-workers.

    A lot of behavioral questions and since this is my first interview like ever, guess I didn't prepare enough examples.

    No offer, notified after 2 weeks or so after the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    After applying on line, I received communication from HR desk yesterday. An email was sent to me stating the position as a "work at home position. I was told to set up an AOL account for Instant Messaging, which I did. I was told when to sign on for the initial interview - 10:00, Sept 5, 2014. I answered questions for approx 1 hour. Salary and benefits were included in the email. My initial interview was a questionnaire through AIM. I am waiting for the next phase.

    Interview Questions
    • Typical HR questions regarding situations that I have dealt with in the past. Hardest question was, "Why should we hire you" and the "strengths and weaknesses question. It was weird to do an interview through Instant Messaging. I was told I has to set up an AOL account in order to communicate with Human Resources. At first, I thought it was one of those scams on the internet.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tarrytown, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    The job interview process was typical as any other pharmaceutical company. The process involved a phone interview and then an on-site interview for pretty much the entire day. The interviewers were very pretty friendly and the lab tour of the company definitely made the company a desirable job position.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part was the HR interview where I was asked why I wanted to work for the company when I already had a similar job profile and why I was willing to move cities.   Answer Question
