Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC

Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Durham, NC) in February 2014.

Interview

I applied to literally every summer internship on GSK's website with the word "chemistry" in the title (not the best idea in retrospect). Was contacted by an employee who worked in med chem (not my area of expertise). We scheduled a phone interview. Unsurprisingly, I did not make it past the initial screen.

Interview Questions

    Interview experience was good. GSK follows STAR model where you are asked to give examples of a situation. The manager was very patient throughout the interview and gave the opportunity to express myself.

    It was very structured. Everything had to be answered in a STAR format. The interviewer had a list of questions that you had to answer. But overall it was a friendly interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2008.

    Interview

    It was all pretty easy. They called me up and asked me to pretty much sell myself. I 'm pretty good at doing that so it went well. Some of the questions they asked me were pretty random like "If you could be any brand of cereal, which brand would you be?" I thought it was a joke, so I treated it like a joke. Something must have went right because I got offered the internship.

    Interview Questions

    • "If you could be any brand of cereal, currently on the market, which brand would you be and why?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None. Interns are not allowed to negotiate- you take what they offer.
