    IS Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amgen (Tampa, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview request from HR came with a request to do 2 more immediately during work hours and where not coordinated with each other (second called at same time as first). All went well and was called by HR to discuss all benefits and salary and asked to to complete an extensive background check and schedule out two interviews within next 5 working days.

    Completed the interviews where we talked about the processes of the position and how I would fit into multiple ones. Both interviewees talked about the person currently in the role and how they will be available for a short time and that they will be following up with everyone by week's end. Friday came and went... no call, no email, nothing, and they wont respond to email.

    Very unprofessional to demand you do everything immediate and have no way to follow up.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amgen in July 2017.

    Interview

    I went through multiple interviews. The first was over the phone with someone I presume works in the department doing the hiring. This interview was strangely short and mostly focused on the details of my resume. I was contacted shortly after the first interview by an HR representative who confirmed details of the position, basic benefit package, and to arrange a face to face interview. At the face to face interview, I had two 45 minute one-on-one interviews with two director level people. Again, these interviews were strangely informal. The first was interested in whether I worked with certain people he has worked with in the past. The second focused on high level project management philosophy.

    I have not heard anything from Amgen following the on-site interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the interviewers was very interested in who I have worked with in the past. I was not sure whether confirming I have worked with some of these people would be a positive or a negative.   1 Answer

    Interview

    The interview process was short and to the point. The want intelligent individuals who can pick everything up in one day and train themselves. One has to pick up very fast or they will terminate you on the spot.

    Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amgen.

    Interview

    I met 8 people one on one in the group I applied for a position in and I was asked to prepare a 45 minute presentation on their screenshare webpage. One week following the interview I was told that I did not get the position via email directly from the hiring manager. I found that to be very reassuring and I appreciated the feedback. They were looking for someone with more computational bio experience. However, they also let me know they didn't hire my own boss yet (Sr. Scientist/Investigator) and I saw they re-posted the listings again which indicates they are still looking for candidates. Everyone was friendly and I enjoyed the interview but there was a lot of repeating myself throughout the day due to the lack of clear objectives for the one-on-ones.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me several technical questions and general questions about my previous work. They rarely asked about my management experience, teamwork, or leadership skills.   Answer Question
