    They use a vendor for the screening out process. Be prepared to discuss all of your history and awards. This was a big pharmacy 101 interview with annoying repetitive questions. Big turn off.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amgen (Richmond, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was supposed to meet with 2 managers, but only 1 showed up, so I knew this was a bad sign. Based on manager's answers to my questions, I knew it was a waste of time.

    Device Quality Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online, No response from the in house recruiters. Got the interview through a recruiter. A brief phone interview with the internal recruiter first followed by another phone interview with the hiring manager. Then onsite interview with the hiring manager and the team. Depending on who the hiring manager is, the interviewee may end up with different members of the interview team and the level of interview difficulty. For device QA role, you may get members of Engineering interview you. But the funny thing is that for Engineering positions, QA is never part of their interview process.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It seemed like a fairly typical interview process for a corporate position: pre-screen with the recruiter, phone interview with the hiring manager, a day of interviews (30 min - 1 hour) on-site with potential colleagues. The culture is very welcoming and that was clear during the interview process.
