    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at AMRI (Whitehouse, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Simple. Had to reapply at the office with their paperwork. They had me answer a few basic technical questions prior to the actual interview. Overall the interview questions were more so about how you work with others and if you are a self starter. They had me talking about previous work experience and school

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AMRI (Albany, NY).

    Interview

    Professional interview process including overnight stay, meals etc.
    After hire, what looked on paper as a very organized orientation schedule ended up being a disorganized disaster(mostly due to HR lack of prepapration)

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Long. Very inflexible. They just go with what they offer and doesnt budge.

    Senior Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Albany, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at AMRI (Albany, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The first phone interview was with HR and asked many focused on my experiences with collaboration and my managers' (advisors') style and level of interaction. The second phone interview was with a chemist and he described the pace and scope of the job much more thoroughly. The onsite interview was a day of one-on-one interviews and a 30 minute presentation by myself to about 25 chemists. There was a long delay before a decision was made, and HR kept me reasonably informed with weekly contact.

    Interview Questions

    • Several interviewers on the onsite visit asked technical questions based on their own research, essentially probing basic knowledge and problem-predicting ability.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The HR rep suggested two start dates and I chose the later, which necessitated her resending me the offer letter to sign. It didn't seem like it was a problem for HR.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AMRI (Albany, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Applied directly through AMRI's website. After about a week, was contacted for an initial interview with HR to go over basics and gather background information. This resulted in a second phone interview with the departmental manager, which was based on technical knowledge of equipment and instrumentation. On-site interview about 2 weeks later which involved a research presentation, followed by a tour and additional interviews with members of the research group and V.P. of Analytical Services.

    Interview Questions

    • There was not a most difficult or unexpected question. Since they are partially supported by contract for higher business, it is important to understand that there are many interactions outside the company and being able to relate how you can benefit AMRI in this roll, in my opinion.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AMRI.

    Interview

    Phone interview with scientist going over technical details. Invited to on-site interview at two research sites, medicinal and process development jobs. Usual seminar and one-on-ones, lunch and dinner. Everyone was very pleasant. Could not get much information on the research because most of it is confidential, and contract-based.
