    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KBI Biopharma (Raleigh, NC) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Multi-department personnel interviews. Job offer within a week. Most typical questions were asked. Difficult to return questions because you interview with several people in your group. Theyre really looking for you to fill the role they need and fit with their culture. Very kind and professional, slightly laid back with a couple members.
