    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amgen in November 2016.

    Their application process was handled online and it was very simple to use. The site was very handy and used your resume to auto fill most of the information. It took about a month and a half to hear back. I received an email from a hiring coordinator to schedule an interview. The interview was done through Skype for business and included the HR representative and the IS manager who was hiring. After the interview I was told that it was all they needed. After about a month after the interview I received an offer.
