    Intern Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Celgene (New Brunswick, NJ) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was all via phone with a single manager. Once I was hired as intern, I was converted directly into a full-time employee in 11 months, without any formal interview. Basically, if they like what you're doing, they may not even choose to interview you.
