    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I first had a phone interview with HR Recruiter. Then an on-site interview with 5 other individuals including the hiring manager, directors, managers and another Financial Analyst. I also had an Excel skills test while I was on-site.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fresenius Kabi USA in June 2014.

    Interview

    Learned about opportunity through my university, received an invitation to the interview approximately three weeks after applying, and was offered the position one week later.

    The interview consisted of four separate 30 minutes blocks of one-on-one interviews with managers from the four different groups within the Analytical Development department. The questions depended on the preparedness of each manager - some had reviewed my resume ahead of time and came with specific questions about my experiences while others asked very common questions such as "what is your greatest accomplishment", etc. It did not seem like the managers discussed their approach to the the interview ahead of time. I don't know if the company has an interview protocol for more senior level positions.

    Interview Questions

    • My Ph.D. dissertation topic is electron transfer kinetics of heme proteins. Given that Fresenius Kabi is a pharma company, one of the interviewers asked how my research is applicable to drug development, which it is not really so trying to come up with a thoughtful answer was challenging.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation in terms of compensation. HR let me know right away that the hourly compensation was fixed. I did negotiate to start two weeks later than the company proposed.

    Scientist - Microbiology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melrose Park, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fresenius Kabi USA (Melrose Park, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I completed a phone interview with the recruiter, and then I went in for an interview. The interview was not so formal. I spoke with the hiring manager about my background and education. It was kind of hard to gauge the tone because the manager was a bit nonchalant and standoff-ish. The other two managers were very friendly and engaging. I was given a tour of the facility (beautiful) and an idea of what I'd be doing. They followed up a few days later and informed me of their decision. Overall process took about 1-2 weeks
