    Associate Scientist I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Malvern, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Janssen Research & Development (Malvern, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Was referred by an employee. The phone interview was with the Associate Director who asked a couple of technical questions. About 2 weeks later, I was invited for an in-person panel interview which was scheduled for 45 min, but lasted about 1 hour 20 min. I walked into a conference room to see 5 people sitting at the table and one empty chair at the end for me with a bottle of water. Panel interview process was intimidating, asked a lot of technical, behavioral, and situational questions. A lot of the situational questions I did not have a situation for, so I said "I have not been faced with this situation in my career yet, but if I did, I would do ...." After my interview, I did not feel 100% confident that I nailed the interview, but then 2 weeks later I got the offer!

    Interview Questions

    • 1. How do you deal with confrontation, and provide an example
      2. Name a time when an employee did something unethical, and how did you deal with it?
      3. Name a time when a project partner did not do their share of the work, and what you did.
      4. What do you do if a partner has an idea that you are sure will not work?
      5. If you plan out a schedule, what do you do if something goes wrong? I answered "I would go back to the drawing board and try to figure out what went wrong and prevent it from happening again." But then they asked what if you did all that, and something still went wrong?   1 Answer

    The interview process is like always, you speak to your contracting company and then they provide you with time of the phone interview. You speak on the phone with the manager of the team that you are going to be working with. If they like you, you will come in for an interview at the site and typically you will sit with everyone on the team to see how you will mesh. Once that is done they will decide to hire you or not.
