    Interview

    Elanco uses the standard situational questions. "Tell me about a time when you...". You'll meet with HR, the hiring manager, plus one or two other people. It's pretty standard. They will then meet to discuss all of the candidates and make a decision based on how you answered all of the questions.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Elanco (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The process was efficient, professional, and through. Standard behavioral interview, with rigorous questions, but if you know your stuff, you'll be fine. I met with several people back to back, but one on one. Although they did have a list of questions as guidelines, the interview itself was very conversational. People were very friendly and I was at ease the whole time.

    Quality Assurance Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Elanco (Greenfield, IN) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Elanco, like the parent company uses "Targeted Selection" interviewing process. They ask leading questions with scenarios and expect you to respond in the "STAR" format - Situation/Task/Action/Result. As recently as 2017, Elanco specifically has changed their interviewing practices and no longer emphasizes the STAR format, but anyone interviewing at Elanco that can still form their responses using that format will do well.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    This was an internal job posting, so there was no negotiating as my existing salary transferred.

    Interview

    College Campus interview. Lady I interviewed with was EXTREMELY unprofessional. Gave me interview when I met her at career fair. Then never got back to me. I thought it was my email or computer problems. Apparently not. She forgot. She lied... Then said she could fit me in, but she had an opening all along. And this is the short story...
