    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Catalent Pharma (Philadelphia, PA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I did not apply for the job. I was made to interview and got the job then was forced into turning it down. My situation is different than that of anyone who would be actively seeking for a postion there. I was not lucky enough to have a choice and as a result was punished for that very same thing. After my forced-upon interview, it look two months to hear back. The interview was behavior-based and fair.

    Interview Questions

    • Just know the technical aspects of the job you are applying for. While they will train you on the job, it does not look good to answer "I don't know."   Answer Question

    Warehouse Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Catalent Pharma (Kansas City, MO) in August 2011.

    Interview

    It was short, simple, not horribly professional but functional. The interviewers didn't really seem to have a set structure set up, but that helped make it easy for me. A manager and an employee interviewed me at the same time, which was odd, but they both has questions. I did most of the talking, gave simple answers and they fell in love with me. Didn't seem hard to impress them.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Catalent Pharma in May 2016.

    I first had a phone interview. Then a week or a few days later I was asked for an onsite interview . The interview process seemed to be like any other pharmaceutical company.

    • The questions seemed mostly behavioral but before my onsite interview I had some technical questions asked which I answered appropriately. Before the onsite interview they also gave me a worksheet to do that involved basic chemistry and organic chemistry to work on. During the Interview I had a mixture of behavioral and technical questions but more leaning to the behavioral side.   Answer Question
