Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amgen in February 2017.

Interview

Applied online. Received a call about 1.5 weeks later from a statistician at Amgen to set up a phone screen, which was scheduled for the following week. I spoke with two different statisticians on the phone for ~30 minutes. The questions were mainly focused on my resume and the work that I had completed. At the end of the interview, I was told that they were conducting other phone screens and that I would hear back within a week regarding the onsite interview. After 1.5 weeks, I had not heard anything so I contacted them and was told the position has already been filled.
