    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA).

    Interview

    Highly intimidating and challenging process. Most managers know within the first 10 seconds if they will hire you. Allow your communication skills to clarify your expectations and responsibilities. Only contract or temporary positions available at the time. Phone interview then progressed to onsite panel interview, including 1:1 with prospective manager.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was multiple people with a couple of 1:1's, a panel interview and a site tour that took place over a two days with a total of eight hours spent on campus. There was ample parking and I didn't have to pay for parking, which was nice. All of the interviewers were well prepared and had read my CV and asked questions that were pertinent to the job description. Each of the interviews made an effort to make me comfortable in the process and understood that the process is long. One person even called it "brutal" though I have had worse experiences so it made me laugh.
