    Medical Writing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thousand Oaks, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I talked to about 8 people over the day long interview for 50 to 30 minutes at a time. My sense is that they have a form to fill in about the process. Many of the questions are repeated in the interviews. Don't be afraid to give the same answers--it shows consistency.

    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 through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amgen (Seattle, WA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Hiring manager will conduct the phone interview first. If they like you, then you will be invited for an onsite interview. It is a full day interview, multiple 1:1 or 1:2 interview with the higher title staff, then a group interview with the remaining of the department. Collective feedback is asked. But if someone strongly against the hiring, then the hiring manager will consider that opinion.
