Average Interview

Application

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

Interview

2 day interview, some behavior based questions, anticipate each person will be contacted to comply with internal questions/forms regarding the specific questions they were asked to pose by management/HR.

Interview Questions

  • No question will be unexpected if you have done your research on behavior based interviewing processes. Point of the seminar is to evaluate presentation skills, ability to interpret work for an audience, ability to answer questions in your feet - and your behavior during answering those questions. Content is less of a concern   Answer Question

Negotiation

Not all recruiters necessarily had HR background. Hiring manager may be able to help you with negotiations

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Eli Lilly and Company (Indianapolis, IN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Was basically an entire day affair. with 5 different meetings. I met with groups ranging from 1 person to a room full of people listening to my presentation. In short it was a pretty grueling day but if you are prepared you should be fine just expect the unexpected and be prepared to answer many many questions. Best of luck to each of you.

    Interview

    Usual interview process - phone screen with hiring manager, then in-person with multiple people (6-7 people) 30 minutes each. Everything went smoothly until they didn't get back within the allotted time the recruiter/manager mentioned. Felt strong along a bit - communication could have been better.
