    Clinical Operations Lead Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Wilmington, DE) in December 2017.

    Interview

    First, I spoke with a recruiter via phone to go over some basic information and questions. I then spoke with a hiring manager for a formal phone interview based on AZ's values and responses were given in the STAR format. AZ provided great resources to prepare for the interview. I was offered an in-person interview at their HQ in Wilmington, DE. I flew there and completed an in-person interview almost verbatim to the phone interview. They seemed interested and told me I would hear in 1-2 weeks either way. After 4 weeks without hearing anything (with a week off due to the holidays) I contacted the recruiter and hiring manager and asked if they had made a decision. I did not get a response to my email and never heard from AZ. This was extremely disappointing and rude, in my opinion. I couldn't get a simple email reply after flying across the country for an interview. Very disappointing and poor process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AstraZeneca.

    Interview

    contacted to interview, wasn't told who I was interviewing with just given a time to arrive. Interviewer was late. Interview was fine. Didn't receive offer which is ok, but was ignored after the interview even after I followed up. My advice would be to have the courtesy to notify those going for interviews with an answer and to thank them for taking time to apply.
