I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals in May 2013.

Interview Details – 1st call was from HR, which asked mostly of your expectations (salaries, comfortable with the area of the company, etc.) of the position. 2nd call was from prospective manager, who asked mostly technical questions related to the job description. 3rd interview was on site with four different managers/directors separately and followed up by 2 sessions of group interview with other RA.

Research Associate II Interview

Research Associate II
Tarrytown, NY

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals in June 2010.

Interview Details – Got call from HR in less than a day i applied online and she asked few basic biochemistry questions, all of them i answered. she got back in five days and scheduled a phone interview a week later with two scientists.

Phone interview lasted an hour its all technical questions on protein biochemistry. I also had to explain my experience in biochemistry. I did answer 90% of questions.

one week later got a call for personal interview and to my surprise was scheduled on saturday. there were like 5 other candidates waiting for interview when I reached there. interview lasted for 4 hours. Met with 3 groups of scientists, associate director and RAs and finally HR guy. Everybody had a list of behavioural questions to ask. Only scientists group asked technical questions. Behavioural questions based on career goals, how do you accept failure, multi tasking.

Got an offer in less than a week. After two weeks of not-so-successful negotiations i accepted it. Salary was below par taking living expenses in to account. Supporting a family might be difficult. benefits are okay, not so great. Positive thing is they seem financially secure for few years to come.

Interview Question – how do you move on from one project to another without being emotionally attached to any of them?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – they seem hell bent on base salary..they offered more bonus but not base salary hike.

The process took a day - interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals in May 2008.

Interview Details – interview-six different people, all day long, 45min-1hr each.

hiring process-horrible. only 5 days to decide, no room for negotiation.

Interview Question – What is your preferred method of cloning.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no room for negotiation, was lied to by HR (promised I'd be promoted in six months), was convinced to take low wage. HORRIBLE!!!
