    Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    The review process was typical of most companies. The HR recruiter calls and does the initial phone screen. If selected, you are scheduled for an onsite interview with others that would be your peers, manager, etc.. It’s a comfortable atmosphere, nice people, and not too difficult of questions. You walk away and hope for a call back with an offer.

    Diabetes Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals (Jersey City, NJ).

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter to do a multi-person interview at a Hyatt hotel. Was basically a cattle call type set-up with tons of people being shifted to HR, marketing and management in different areas of the hotel. Very unorganized and highly unprofessional. Final IV with manager was a sad joke.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals in January 2013.

    Interview

    You pretty much need to come in as a temporary worker to get hired. Then you are hired into whatever position you came in to. Hiring process itself was smooth. Interview was as I expected. It helps when you know the people you are interviewing with and know you are qualified for the position..

    Interview Questions

    • Do you want to supervise people.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate and I wish I had. They brought me in low. Disappointing. With all my previous experience in pharmaceuticals (but not on the manufacturing end) I thought I might warrant a better rate.

    Senior Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals (San Diego, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Started with a few phone interviews, then walked in for several 1:1's. Basic questions based on the resume, followed by analytical questions. (What would you do if...). Some of the questions were repetitive, and the interviews became redundant having to go through the resume with each of the interviewers. Everyone was nice, however each manager wanted a different profile, and only one hire.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example of when you recieved negative feedback..how did you take this?   Answer Question

    Senior Manager QA Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals in June 2010.

    Interview

    The people were thorough in their interview process. They asked good technical and background questions designed to evaluate whether my experience was a good match for the company. Senior management questions were generally less probing, surprisingly enough, but they were interested in how I would work out with the subordinates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amylin Pharmaceuticals (La Jolla, CA) in April 2008.

    Interview

    I first met with the hiring manager who asked me general questions about why I wanted the positions, why Amylin, etc. Next, I met with the direct supervisor who asked questions about my resume.
