    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA).

    Interview

    1) Phone Interview
    I was contacted by PI. He did not even write an email but directly had a phone conversation/interview. After describing (still took ~ 1 Hr or so ) my thesis work and postdoctoral work, he said someone from HR will be in contact to set up In-person interview.
    2) Contacted by HR and described their benefits/salary range
    The process was very smooth- nothing special. She explained about some of the benefits and salary range.
    3) In house Interview
    The process was very long and stressful.
    It started out with ~3 phone conversation (connecting its SF HQ) roughly 30 minutes long. Some of the PIs were friendly, the others were a bit rude. Some of the questions asked by the Pis were difficult-

    Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    1. Phone screen with recruiter
    2. Phone interview with director in the department
    3. On site interviews: 4 back to back

    All interviews were fairly short (30 min) with no tough questions really--only behavioral, talking through your resume & it was very much conversational in that the interviewers spoke a lot about the department and day-to-day responsibilities for the role. I got the sense in the final interview that they weren't really interested in hiring me. Overall, everyone was nice, and the reimbursement was generous. However, I informed them beforehand that I had other offers at hand and would need a decision promptly. They said the position start date was ASAP, so no worries there...until I had to follow up multiple times weeks after the final interview just to get a generic rejection email. I'm absolutely positive that had I not followed up, I would've been kept in silence. This cost me an offer from another company due to their inefficient, slow response--very disrespectful.
