    Was recruited through LinkedIn about a position called Program Enrollment Coordinator. Then had a phone interview with HR and the position was patient enrollment coordinator. They asked a couple of questions about your resume. After that, did a face to face interview and the position was called Data Entry.

    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.

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Alkermes (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2009.

    Interview

    initial phone screen, then interview with the hiring mgr & one of his reps.
    They seemed a little disorganized as this is a start up pharmaceutical sales force.
    They didnt really offer up what they were looking for in the person selected for the job.
    Because this is a new start up sales force, they didnt have a lot of answers to question or a lot of detail on what would make a rep successful.
