Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Eli Lilly (Indianapolis, IN).

Interview

The hiring process consisted of an HR interview followed by an interview with the hiring manager and then an on site day-long interview with up to 12 different people. The interview process was very rigorous with several fit questions and also required me to give a talk on my previous work. There were interviews with several senior director level scientists and future colleagues from different areas of the organization.

    Applied online and received a casual phone interview out of the blue.

    On-site interview followed the standard format of an hour-long presentation and 1 on 1 interviews with scientists and HR.

    Lilly does do behavioral interviewing so be prepared with your STAR answers to questions like, "Tell me about how you've resolved a conflict with a collaborator."
