I applied online – interviewed at Novavax.Interview Details
1st- phone interview with manager of section. Typical interview, no behavioral questions, just asking about my resume, experienced and the work I liked to do.
2nd interview- Met with 5 different people. Met with HR, CEO, managers and the people I would be working with. HR just asked about my salary requirements and my interest in the company. CEO didn't even ask me professional questions, more personal questions as to what I liked to do in my free time. He seemed very nice and laid back. Managers asked me typical interview questions and some behavioral questions. People I would be working with just asked why I wanted to work there. Since they weren't managers they didn't really seem to care about asking me serious questions, seemed more laid back.
I could tell that it was a nice place to work. They take employees out bowling every week. It seems like most people are happy there. Everyone seemed really nice. Overall it was a good interview process.Interview Questions
