    Application Details

    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.

The company uses its own virus-like particle (VLP) technology that, unlike traditional vaccines which are grown in chicken eggs, use recombinant proteins grown from insect cell lines. Its manufacturing process is also faster and more flexible than traditional manufacturing methods -- a fact that might help the vaccines succeed in combating fast-changing strains of pandemic influenza.
