    Associate Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bloomington, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cook Pharmica (Bloomington, IN).

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two phone interviews and a series of in person interviews. The phone interviews each consisted of a somewhat casual 30 min conversation where the interviewer described the company and asked a few questions about my background. They only asked a few "HR style" behavioral interview questions and were mostly interested in my resume. The in person interviews consisted of a lunch, tour, and 5 back to back interviews. Though each one was slightly different they mostly consisted of questions asking about my background and experiences. Very few questions were behavioral questions or traditional interview style questions. Most of the interviews were fairly laid back.

I first met and talked with one of the general human resource people for about another 15 minutes or so. After that I met with some from the department I was applying for and talked for about 30-45 minutes. I later learned I was one of the last internship hires so this may not be the typical hiring process.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I was recruited from within the company and did not have to answer any questions. I would receive requests from different departments to do some labor intensive task involving documents. Since I was efficient, I began to receive requests from several Managers and I never interviewed with any of them. My initial interview into Cook Pharmica was with a 4 person team. Each person asked me questions and I answered them in turn. I was then given an opportunity to ask my own questions. I received a phone call the same day with a time to report to work the following morning. I was pleased with the hiring team's efficiency.

    Negotiation

    There would be a bonus after an x amount of time.
