    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Novo Nordisk (Clayton, NC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    My pre-screen was with the talent acquisiton department and the formal interview was with a three person panel comprised of talent acquisition, division manager, and HR business partner. It was very professional, organized and they panel made me feel very comfortable during the interview. It was probably the best interview I ever had from an interviewer standpoint.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novo Nordisk (Seattle, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    My interview consisted of a 45 minute presentation on my current research, followed by a battery of 1-on-1 interviews with 1 HR member and 5 scientists. The 1-on-1 interviews consisted of behavioral interview questions (from all 6 employees), discussions on working at the new Novo Nordisk facility, and time for me to ask questions as well. I was also refreshed on the benefits package should I receive a job offer prior to my interview wrapping up.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Novo Nordisk (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then an offer to interview out of town; everyone was professional during the interview; poor follow up after the interview. I had to continue to call and email the recruiter for him to finally inform me days later that I was not chosen. It was a complete disregard for the" loser," I guess. It disappointed me in how it ended. Everything happens for a reason, so I am okay for not being hired. I have already accepted another position with a teaching hospital.
