    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Eurofins Scientific.

    Interview

    They go through a very long drawn out process with very many phone interviews. Conducted interviews both my phone and by video call. The team was supportive and interested in learning about the candidates background as well as helpful in providing information about the company and their roles and responsibilities.

    Upstream Vaccine Development Scientist Interview Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Blue Bell, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Eurofins Scientific (Blue Bell, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Worst experience ever, the person that was supposed to interview me had called out on the interview day, so someone else had to take over. This other person couldn't answer any of my questions regarding the position. Anyways, I was invited back for a second interview and was told that i would hear back in 1 week. One month later, still waiting for the decision, called the person again to ask for an update, was told the position had been filled a while ago. Shame on them for not taking 2 miserable minutes to write an email and inform people that they didn't make the cut.

    The interview was short, about 20-30 minutes long. My interviewer asked very straightforward questions. I only met with one person. There was a tour of the facilities afterwords. I had to fill out a lot of paperwork prior to the interview though, paperwork that usually isn't filled out until after you're hired. They got back to me in a little over a week.
