    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.

Phone interview then progressed to onsite panel interview, including 1:1 with prospective manager.
