    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.

    Evaluation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lonza (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was contacted a month later via email to fill out a questionnaire and possible availability times for an interview. After some back and forth a date was set and they flew me in for the interview. Everyone was very nice. Interview went well.
    I was scheduled for a phone interview with 2 more people including HR because they were not present during the face to face interview. I did a lot of research on the company and I felt they were not expecting the questions I asked them.
    Especially the company had a high turnover rate lately and HR indicated,reading in between the lines "they can't compete."
    Also I felt they couldn't match my salary ,judging by the way one of the directors was behaving.

    After the whole interview process I didn't hear anything from them until I sent an email to the recruiter asking for feedback. That was very unprofessional considering paying for hotel,flight and rental car for a candidate to come in for an interview. The least will be to call the candidate.
