    Case Mangr Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Alkermes (Waltham, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Brief telephone interview then onsite interview approx. One week later with 6-7 ppl in 30 min intervals. I wish the interviewers would coordinate their questions. I found myself answering the same questions over and over again for each new interviewer. It was so redundant that I got frustrated and bored. they asked so much about not meeting deadlines that I had to ask them if they had a work flow problem. I waited 20 min in the lobby then the HR person called MY cell phone to ask where I was!! Not a good impression on their part.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you deal with not meeting deadlines? (this was asked many times in various ways)   Answer Question
    • Describe a time when you worked on a team project, your role, and how it went well or did not go well.   Answer Question

    Scientist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alkermes in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online for a Scientist position, and received an email from HR a few days later asking to set up a time for a phone interview with the hiring manager. The phone interview took approximately 30 minutes. It was mostly questions about my scientific background and checking to see if I had the experience necessary to be a good fit. No behavioral questions. Since I did not have experience with some specific instrumentation that the role required, I was not optimistic in the process proceeding any further. The hiring manager told me that she was going to discuss it with her manager immediately after the phone call. After two weeks of not hearing anything, I assumed I was no longer being considered.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Alkermes.

    Interview

    We set up a time for the interview to take place via email which was convenient. I set aside 30min for the interview as the Email specified the interview lasted 10min. Which is fine I personally felt it had gone well and was told the information I shared would be given to the hiring manager. Overall I liked how everything was handled except after the fact. I was not selected to move forward in the process. It would have been nice to at least get an email that stated that they would no longer be pursuing my application. Other than that pleasant experience.
