    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Novozymes (Durham, NC) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Applied on line, had phone interview, then invited for an on-site interview. I was requested to make a presentation and they thought I did really well. However, they really wanted me to talk about my research results which I did not include in the slides. They asked many questions during and after the presentation. Then, team members asked behavioral questions. If you are requested to do a presentation, it may be wise to reach out to the hiring manager and ask what presentation kind/format they want. Overall, everybody was very friendly and it was a good experience.
