Supply Chain Strategist Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Sandoz

Interview Details – The first round interview was going over my resume really quickly, and being described to about the projects that were available. Based on my experience, I was asked to choose the project that better fits my interest and background.

The second round interview goes deeper on my resume, about what skills I have used in the projects I have done. Then I was asked a specific question that how would I help them improve the demand forecast accuracy with historical data and expert recommendations.

Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Sandoz in December 2009.

Interview Details – A 4 hour interview divided between 5 people ended up interviewing with only 3 people since 2 were out of the office. One person had only been there a month, another a very nice HR person and finally a key stake holder who obviously wanted a background not found on my resume and made sure to let me know it. The position reported to a director level person at another facility out of state.

Interview Question – Explain and define elements in approx 6 manufacturing steps presented on a spreadsheet.   View Answer
