Associate Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA) in October 2016.

Interview

1. Phone screen with recruiter
2. Phone interview with director in the department
3. On site interviews: 4 back to back

All interviews were fairly short (30 min) with no tough questions really--only behavioral, talking through your resume & it was very much conversational in that the interviewers spoke a lot about the department and day-to-day responsibilities for the role. I got the sense in the final interview that they weren't really interested in hiring me. Overall, everyone was nice, and the reimbursement was generous. However, I informed them beforehand that I had other offers at hand and would need a decision promptly. They said the position start date was ASAP, so no worries there...until I had to follow up multiple times weeks after the final interview just to get a generic rejection email. I'm absolutely positive that had I not followed up, I would've been kept in silence. This cost me an offer from another company due to their inefficient, slow response--very disrespectful.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Amgen in February 2016.

    Interview

    HR Phone screen - talked in general about benefits, vacation, etc. Be prepared to field/dodge question about salary at this point.
    Interviews Scheduled - 4 1:1 interviews, One with the department manager, another with the senior manager of the department, another manager of a different area of the department, and another member of the department. For the most part standard interview questions were asked, nothing too crazy.

    I heard back about two weeks later from the HR representative who did the phone screen.

    Interview

    After a phone interview, I was invited to a full day onsite interview. Met with the team, and had short interviews with everyone. Got to take a look at the labs and the equipment that they used. No trick questions, just the typical interview questions about your resume and background. Everyone was friendly and the interview process was enjoyable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amgen (West Greenwich, RI) in February 2009.

    Interview

    Amgen provided travel expenses and planning for the interview process. Travel went smoothly. Communication ahead of time provided some insight into the interview process so I was ready for the day long interview session. The session went smoothly from one interviewer to the next. The interviewers varied from management to shift leads from various areas of the manufacturing process. All interviewers were courteous and answered all questions I had about the position and responsibilities.
