    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo.

    Interview

    phone screen consisting of basic interview questions, then moved on to interview via phone with the hiring manager who was confrontational, argumentative and arrogant. I was called back but declined their requests for another interview as I had some other opportunities that were more appealing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo in July 2016.

    Interview

    ~45 minute phoner - mostly a meet & greet. provided them the narrative of how i got here and what i was looking for. Round 1: 3 x 1-hour long sessions with two people in each. There is a system in place where during each round they ask you two very "interview-y" questions. "describe a problem you faced, how you arrived at a solution, and the outcome." "describe a difficult person you worked with, the approach, and the results." things like that. they felt pretty standard. Round 2: felt more like a formality- 30 minutes with immediate supervisor and 30 minutes with compliance officer, and went out to lunch.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on their website careers page. Was emailed for an initial phone interview. The phone interview was about 30 minutes, asking about my experience, background. Seeing if I'm a good fit. He was Very friendly. After that was asked to do an in person interview with him at a local Panera since they are always on the road, he was very understanding about my location. Or else I would have had to drive to Annapolis for the interview. The interview At Panera went well. I got a call the following week and he said they could not hire anyone at the moment anymore because they were just going to restructure the company from within. And not have any new hires till the new year. So I was very disappointed in the lead up to this.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo (Philadelphia, PA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call from the District Manager to set up a phone screen. The phone screen was scheduled for two days later with the DM and was fairly in depth. It felt like an initial face-to-face interview. After the phone interview, a face-to-face interview was scheduled for the following week. The questions in the face-to-face interview were easier than I anticipated. The District Manager felt my energy and passion was low and thus did not move me forward in the interview process. I received an e-mail from Daiichi two weeks later stated that they moved forward with another candidate.
