    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Eli Lilly and Company (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    BEWARE!! MASSIVE SCAM!!

    Somebody is scamming people using this company's name, info, etc... Person that was spoken to claimed to be President of the company.

    First off, NO MAJOR PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY CEO OR PRESIDENT WOULD EVER DIRECTLY CONTACT A PEE-ON CUSTOMER REP. EMPLOYEE FOR A POTENTIAL POSITION.. REALLY?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!?

    Online interview, no in person or f2f. Shortlisted resumes and job candidates was a promise of having "superior qualities and desired traits" among other "candidates". Mentioned a check stipend to purchase "office products" and be deposited into your account to work from home.

    Thank God it dawned on me before any very personal info was given out like account #s, social security, etc...

    Upper levels of this company need to comb the lower levels and find out what's going on. It's sick that some people have fallen victim to this. Hopefully this is a legit company and isn't the actual reason behind the scam!

    First round interview on skype, second round at their campus
    The first one was on skype because potential full time offer would be in Spain (my home country). I had two 45 min interviews, one with HR and one with the COO. Second round included a vist to their campus to meet many different exmployees and senior executives. Overall it was a great experience and increased my interest in working there.
