    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.

    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.

    Interview

    Interviews are completed by the inter man based on what the interviewee says to be conformed and done.
    Interviews are a far more personal form of research than questionnaires.
    In the personal interview, the interviewer works directly with the interviewee.
    Unlike with mail surveys, the interviewer has the opportunity to probe or ask follow up questions.
    Interviews are generally easier for the interviewee, especially if what is sought are opinions and/or impressions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (London, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted an eligibility form, then took three online tests, then had application reviewed and was invited to interview. The day consisted of 3 x 25 minute interviews, coffee with current interns and a tour of the labs. The interviews were mainly technical and biochemistry-based in nature. I do not advising spending much time preparing information on GSK as a company, but instead brush up on fundamental biochemistry knowledge. There were one or two STAR-based questions but nearly all questions were technical.
