    Site Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Audubon, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Almac Group (Audubon, PA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    i applied via linkedin. i was then contacted by a supposed "executive search firm" called slone partners. favorably they were very aggressive in their recruitment of me, but after several email exchanges the recruiters boss thought they had made an error in judging my CDMO experience which in a word was VERY irritating to me as the recruiter didnt really seem to know what she was doing. being proactive i wrote a complete summary of my CDMO experience. she then moved me to a phone screen. upon the phone screen i had basically done all her homework for her, to which she said she really didnt have any questions. lastly she wanted a video call "so she could have a better connections etc.." which is a lie. she wanted to see what i looked like. the video call seemed to go well, but she started to proliferate other companies i was interviewing with etc.
    i followed up with her, never heard anything back. apparently being african american is a big NO for an english company like almac? judged on this experience i would never engage with almac group or slone partners ever again.
    extremely unprofessional and obviously biased.

    Clinical Supplies Project Leader Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Almac Group.

    Interview

    Phone screening was rather shorter than I have expected and I felt as though I did not have enough chance to appeal myself during the phone call. The position I was applying for was in California and was told that after the phone screening, the in-person interview would be out of state which did not make sense to me. Otherwise, the lady I spoke with was very nice and friendly.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Souderton, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Almac Group (Souderton, PA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was not personable and they did not want to know anything about me or my career goals. I think that they already decided they were not interested before the interview started. I even caught one of the interviewer staring at the wall while I was giving a response. I felt like I answered a question appropriately and provided what was asked. However I feel I may have been over looked based on other reason other than my interview.

    Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Almac Group (Durham, NC) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me within two weeks of applying. The experience was good with several interviews with recruiter and then with hiring team. It was obvious that the team was not in agreement with the expectations for what type of candidate was best for the job. The main person who ended up being the supervisor was not in favor of their final decision and made it clear that they made a poor decision in hiring someone with less than 5 years of experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Almac Group (Souderton, PA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Seriously, what is the deal with this company? The company set up a phone interview about the open position. I received an email from the company recruiter approximately 25 minutes after the phone interview was supposed to begin indicating that they were stuck in a meeting and wanted to reschedule later in the day. I was unable to reschedule later that day due to another appointment that I had. I indicated that I had availability the following day but heard nothing in return. Approximately a week later I received an email indicating that I had to due something to my online career profile but then have not heard anything from them since. It seems to me that this company doesn't value people and views them as nothing more than a commodity. I am glad that things will not be progressing with this company!

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Almac Group (Souderton, PA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straight forward. Math test seemed unnecessary. It also took a very long time from when I had my phone interview to when I had the in person. Especially because it was a boiler plate interview for what is essentially an entry level position.
