Scientist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in King of Prussia, PA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (King of Prussia, PA) in April 2014.

Interview

One 30-min HR phone screening. One week later received onsite interview invitation. First, a 60-min HR interview full of behavior questions with hiring manager present. Then, a 30-min technical presentation, followed by one-hour panel discussion. Lab tours, lunch. Finally, three 30-min one-to-one interview.

Interview Questions

  • The one-hour interview with HR is full of crap: what's your motivation? How do you handle difficult people? and so on. You can nail these questions by preparing stories for these behavioral questions. Just Google it   1 Answer

    Interview

    Applied online at gsk.com. Was contacted several weeks later by team manager and did a phone interview. Next week I was contacted to set up a onsite interview. Onsite interview consisted of 3 1on1 interviews and then a lunch with the group. Following week had a phone interview with HR. Week later same HR rep offered the job. Overall an awesome process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline in November 2010.

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview at my university for a student position (1 year placement). I was interviewed by the hiring manager only. This was a general scientific interview, asking both chemistry questions and behavioural questions. The interviewer was very nice and made me feel at ease. If i was unsure of an answer to a technical question, he would help me along till i got the correct answer. The interview lasted 45 minutes and I was called the following day with an offer.
