    Regulatory Submissions Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Northbrook, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Northbrook, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Astellas Pharma US in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called by a recruiter for a short phone interview. We discussed basic questions like why Astellas, and why I wanted to leave my current job. She asked me what I currently make, and what I am looking to make at Astellas.
    A few days later, i was called by a different HR member, and told that the hiring managers wanted to do a phone interview. It was only about 30 minutes, very pleasant, and the questions were general. A few days later, I got an email that told me that I have an in-person interview, which was from 9a-330p. It was a long day, I met with all kinds of people, from associates who I would be working with, to Directors and VPs. I was in one room, and the different interviewers came to me. The coordinators were very nice, offering me water and breaks. It was exhausting, but I thought it went as well as I could have imagined.

    Two weeks after I interviewed, I found out via email (after reaching out for an update) that they went with another candidate.
