Senior Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thousand Oaks, CA
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA) in October 2015.

Interview

I got the hiring manager's phone interview first, then HR interviewed me after about 2-3 months and asked some basic questions. I flew to LA for the onsite interviews. 6 people interviewed me, each one took 30 min-50 min. Some interviewers didn't prepare for the interviews at all, and reviewed my resume in front of me, some even asked me which position I was interviewing for and asked questions randomly. I felt some of the interviewers were not interested in me, or maybe they don't care it at all, they just want to listen to the hiring manager's decision. After two weeks, I emailed the hiring manager to ask about the updated, no response. Obviously I am not selected, I think I didn't answer hiring managers' questions well.

Interview Questions

  • questions were based on the past experience. Describe how did I resolve some issues,etc. Are more like behavior questions. Communication between interviewee and interviewer is important.   1 Answer
