    QC Chemist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hayward, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Impax Laboratories (Hayward, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Not the greatest English speaker from the R&D Hiring manager, but I was able to understand her. Was asked about previous job experience and asked to explain how to perform a test from scratch with every possible single detail possible. I explained to her a everything I knew, but also told her that everything done in lab is in referenced to a SOP. Also, that not all SOPs are the same. She didn't care about that. She wanted to know every detail down to the calculations. Manager seems to lack some social skills and not other skills that I could bring to the table if she doesn't have any experience in them. Manager appeared to have limited knowledge of only what her company does. I think if you speak mandarin, you'll be ok working there. If you need to speak fluent English, this might not be the place for you in the lab.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Impax Laboratories (Hayward, CA).

    Interview

    After two rounds I was invited in for a round of interviews with 9 people each lasting 45 minutes to an hour. They did not schedule any breaks in between interviews, including any bathroom breaks. The offices were the most depressing thing I've ever seen and were straight out of government offices from the 70s. All of that is fine I guess but after such a huge investment they never followed up with me whether I got the job, even though I asked for updates and was told my interviews received positive feedback. I only learned I didn't get the job after my job account with them was closed. Worst interview experience after many many bad ones with other companies. Thankfully the stock completely tanked and CEO left shortly after I interviewed so I dodged a bullet there.

    Interview

    The first phone interview was brief and pleasant. The interviewer asked for a brief overview of relevant lab experience. The first interview was basically a phone screen.

    A second phone interview was scheduled a couple of days later and was a little more in depth; the second interviewer was also pleasant to speak with and asked standard questions regarding relevant job experience and qualifications. The second interviewer stated the possibility of another potential phone interview.
