    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted an application sometime in August 2013, and was caught by surprise when I got a call in February 2014 asking if I was still interested in the position. I said yes, and from there the communication was very timely. I was sent an e-mail to set up interview times, and the recruiter was very accommodating with the schedule. They sent maps and detailed information, and I went in for the interview. I met with the whole team, including a conference call attendee from another office. Everybody was really nice and positive. They asked relevant questions and didn't hold back from asking some challenging ones, but they also didn't ask pointlessly tricky or confrontational questions. I felt like I was being honestly evaluated for my fit with the team and my knowledge of the work.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me how you handled a situation where somebody on your team was not doing their share of work. (Follow up: Do you think that was the best way to handle it, and why?)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was given a call with an offer. It seemed good so I accepted. I had read on Glassdoor previously that they don't negotiate so I didn't try.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online in February and got a call in mid-March to set up a phone interview. After the phone interview, they narrowed down to 3 second-round on-site interviews done the next week with three senior project managers and the hiring manager. I thought it went really well, and they were all super nice and welcoming people. It wasn't a really hard interview, mostly behavioral stuff and going over my resume, pretty laid back.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amgen.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Hiring interviewer asked about web applications, but was not really ready to hear answers. Was more interested in poking holes in whatever I say. Was not willing to listen that certain mundane things can be learned on the spot and don't need to on the top of your head. If basics are strong, then other mundane and routine things can be learned in few hours.
