    Graduate Scheme Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university by sending a CV and Cover letter which were passed onto the company. I was then given 3 days to do a digital interview on the computer which involved 3 questions. Once passed that step there was an assessment day. Assessment day included interview (2 on the panel), fact finding exercise and presentation. People were really professional but easy to talk to and welcoming. Nice atmosphere.

    Senior HRBP London Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied via an agency. Was scheduled to meet with the HRD but when I arrived was informed she was busy so was "interviewed" by someone who would report into the role! I offered to re-schedule but was told no there was no other time slots available. Very awkward "interview" as not many questions were asked. Was informed by agency 2 weeks later I had not been selected as the HRD had not met me. A total waster of £60 train/tube fare. So un-professional.

    Associate Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Structured and efficient process. Began with 10-15 min phone interview with HR then invited to face to face interview 2 weeks later. Interviewed with the hiring manager and his line manager, each 20-30min. An interactive session that it very useful for both sides to find out about each other. Job description is generally generic, as a reference at most.
