    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

    District Manager phone call, District Manager personal interview, District Manager/Regional Manager personal interview. The process was fairly quick once it started.

    Interview

    The first round was a thirty minute phone interview which consisted of standard behavioral questions followed by more information on the day-to-day expectations of an intern. I was invited to tour the office and have three more thirty minute in person interviews. Nothing out of the ordinary; more behavioral questions and the chance to meet a variety of employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview

    I had the first interview over HireVu and it was a pretty weird interview if you've never done one like that before. It seems strange talking at a computer. I got through to the next round where the lady spent only a couple minutes with me on the phone and they decided I didn't have enough experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Almost all of the questions were related to past B2B sales experience and I was right out of college so I felt that wasn't great on their part considering they were looking for someone to fill an entry level position.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interviewing process was extermly relaxed and no technical. Most of the time you are being walked throught the facility on a tour. Low expectations as to what you are already expected to know about their process coming in. Most difficult question is to make a reagent to a specific molarity and volume, the most important thing to do is let them know if you have no idea how to do it but that you are willing to learn.

    Interview Questions

    • make a reagent solution to a specific molarity and volume   1 Answer
