I interviewed at Eli Lilly and Company

Interview

I first had a discussion with a recruiter over the phone. It was about 15 minutes and she asked two behavioral questions. The next step was a Zoom call with the hiring manager and one of her colleagues. I prepared a lot for the interview by studying the drugs I would be selling and by preparing answers to general behavioral questions. The Zoom call was 45 minutes. No questions asked about the drugs, they only focused on the behavioral questions.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time you had a difficult relationship with a coworker. How were you able to overcome this?

Generally positive experience. Very thorough process with discussions and interviews with several people. Long process with various levels of people involved, but that's to be expected given how large the company is.

The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Eli Lilly and Company (Bangalore)

Interview

Interviewer should be respectful to the work experience of candidates they are interviewing. Instead of asking basic definitions to an experienced candidate, ask them questions based on their day to day challenges in their job. Definitions can be easily goggled, no need to memorise them and keep them in brain forever as we are no longer in school or college. Also, please brief the candidate upfront what actually the job demands and what skill sets the company and job role is looking at instead of rejecting a candidate whose expertise might not match with your expectation, because this will automatically make him/her ineligible for sometime to apply for other roles as well at lilly. Hope lilly will definitely take this feedback under consideration.

Interview Questions
  • He asked me questions related to Clinical trial basic definitions

Interview

This company does not welcome diversity. As soon as recruiter realized I had an accent (English is not my first language) he end up the interview before started saying the position location had changed and was no longer in my region. When I considered relocation he gave the most bizarre excuses not to continue the process. I'm still confused with the whole thing, traying to figure out what really happened.
