    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Emergent BioSolutions.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 10 people in the same day in groups of from 1-3 individuals. I remained in the same room and they showed up in half-hour intervals. However, once I worked there I was aware of similar level interviewees who were interviewed by more than a dozen people, which seemed excessive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Emergent BioSolutions (Gaithersburg, MD) in May 2016.

    Interview

    3 hour interview with 6 people, 30 minutes each person (1:1). Very long and tedious interview as each person asked same or similar questions. Also, they contradict each other, one person said "we want a people person, not a technical person", but other guys asked tons of technical questions. Didn't like the atmosphere of the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Emergent BioSolutions (Lansing, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by an on-site interview. The on-site interview included a tour of the facilities and manufacturing plant. Interview lasted about 2-3 hours. For the most part, was 2 on 1 with basic STAR based questions. It was a pretty laid back interview and didn't feel uncomfortable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Emergent BioSolutions (Rockville, MD) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Quick contact by HR after applying on-line. Quick progression to on-site interview. Horrible follow-up. Despite several attempts to get a status update. Simply no communication was made. You should ask yourself, do you really want to work for a company that treats interview candidates like that?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Emergent BioSolutions (Lansing, MI) in November 2012.
