    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Lonza (Alpharetta, GA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    There are so many different departments, and everyone does it a little different. Your first contact will be HR, probably a couple of months after you submit your resume. If HR likes what you have to say, you'll meet the the hiring manager, and there team. If everyone likes you, you're in! Provided you pass the physical examination.

    Senior Supply Chain Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alpharetta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lonza (Alpharetta, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Talent person reached out to set up interview with hiring manager immediately after application. From initial email to phone interview took about a week to setup. This was probably the only good thing I can say about the process. It seems as if the interview questions were an attempt to fish industry information or define processes. I have no issue discussing how I can provide value or showing evidence on how I would get to a specific solution, but there is a defining line between interviewing and providing consulting services. After the phone interview........radio silence. Follow up with the HR person, nothing. Follow up with the hiring manager, nothing. That in itself should throw up a red flag.

    Logistics Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portsmouth, NH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lonza (Portsmouth, NH) in May 2019.

    Interview

    The Lonza recruitment team responded back to my online application and requested a person to person interview. After confirming the date and time I was given a list of 4 people from the department that I would be interviewing with along with instruction on how to enter the secured facility. The 4 people started from an immediate supervisors of the different department in Logistics all the way up to the manager. Afterwards I was told to wait for the recruitment team to get back to me on whether I would get the job or not. After approximately 2 weeks I was told that I was overqualified for the position and was not offered anything. It was a very confusing response to what I thought was a very positively responded interview process, but it was their choice and decisions make.
