    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.
