    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Liverpool, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online via www.indeed.co.uk. Had a telephone interview consisting of questions based around my CV. The telephone interview was done by a HR team member so nothing too technical. A week later I got an email to go for an onsite interview of which I am waiting to go to.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Liverpool, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It had 3 parts. The first part they were talking about myself and going through my past experiences and my degree. Then they gave me a protocol and gave me 20 mins with a piece of paper. I needed to read the protocol and once they returned, i needed to tell them how i would go about conducting the experiment. The final part of the interview was when they asked me to describe scenarios where i showed my leadership, team working and problem solving skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca in May 2011.

    Interview

    4 stage: 2 sessions. Inititially management and peers, then a grilling from Director and normal HR fare. There was significant fascination with the arts and languages I also expressed interest in on my CV as if science should be the only thing in my life. I quickly pointed out te absurdiy of the question and we moved on.
