Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Cambridge, MA) in May 2019.

Interview

HR screening, then set up with HM for a videoconference. Standard procedures.

But my scheduled videoconference never worked.
After it was set up, the conference link has no actual testing. It seemed good to go (I can join in, and waiting for host appears). In the actual interview, it kept rejecting me joining in. So I have to rush to work with HR rep to generate another way. After 10 minutes, it finally connected me with the HM. But the HM seemed pissed off, and the interview ended in 3 minutes with she propose to reschedule, which never happened. I didn’t hear a thing from anybody afterwards.

It is surprising to me that how by unprofessional both the HR and HM were.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca in October 2009.

    Interview

    After applying for the job, selection for the interview took the most time. Once the final list was ready, I was contacted for a telephone interview and then a week later, asked for my availability for a HQ based panel interview. In two weeks, the inerview process was completed and the offer letter took another 10 days to arrive.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Appalling management of interview process. First contacted for interview. Then silence from HR contact. Date agreed. Then silence again from HR. Failed to follow up to give final details of location and order of interviewers. HR contact totally confused when contacted and bluffed that the arrangements had been taken over by the departmentmental admin. Never heard from them again, even despite this interview also being through a recommendation!

    Highly unprofessional. Have subsequently heard similar stories from others.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    3 rounds, first was a group panel interview focusing on skillsets, behaviours. 2nd with VP and last one with CEO. No personal references needed, but asked for employer confirmation, education check and police check. questions were mainly giving examples of situations, or solving "hypothetical" situations, issues. Relaxed atmosphere, good questions. AZ is looking to hire for talent and potential to grow with the comapny, the interview process is designed to meet this goal
