    Scientific Associate I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Novartis (Cambridge, MA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through the website in July 2013. I got contacted by the director end of August 2013. We set up a phone interview where we talked about my qualifications and future plans. In a week, I was asked to come down to Boston and I had a full day interview from 830 AM-3 PM. I met about half hour interviews with multiple managers, a presentation and an informal lunch interview. I was asked a bunch of questions regarding my resume and a variety of behavioral questions (strengths, weakness, conflict etc etc). I got an offer letter 2 weeks after my interview.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They offered me way more than average market salary.
