    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Plainfield, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PTC Therapeutics (South Plainfield, NJ).

    Interview

    Overall went well. I first spoke to the HR manager on the phone and he mostly told me about the company. I was then invited for a full day interview and met around 6 managers. Everyone was very friends and generally just wanted to get to know me. I prepared for numerous interview questions (i.e. weaknesses, strengths, why I want to work there, why choose me, etc.) but very few of those were asked and it seems like they just wanted to get to know me.

    Research Scientist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Plainfield, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PTC Therapeutics (South Plainfield, NJ).

    Interview

    At first, I had a quick phone chat with HR manager when I was told about the on-site interview process. It took about a month or so for them to finalize the date/time of the interview. When I got there, I had to talk to a HR director first who was mostly telling me about a company and I kept asking him as many questions as I could. Then, I went on to get interviewed by the hiring manager who asked me about my experience, why I chose their company and whether I still wanted to do my postdoc rather then going to industry. Next part was one hour presentation I had to give talking about my PhD project with an emphasis on skills required for the position. After that, I had about 5-6 30 min interviews with vice presidents, senior directors, scientists from various departments. During one hour lunch break I spoke very informally to my prospective immediate colleagues.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PTC Therapeutics (South Plainfield, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked a series of questions about school and what I have learned. After looking at my resume some questions followed about previous job experiences and organizations I was apart of at school. It was a friendly atmosphere and I did not feel pressured at all. I could tell the interviewer was interested and listened carefully to the answers I provided.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Piscataway, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at PTC Therapeutics (Piscataway, NJ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Lengthy process but ended no feedback. When i interviewed there, I thought the human resources department was very well organized and questions from HR are very professional and very specific to the job itself. I was indeed very impressed. But after my interview, there was no message of hire or not hire. I was in a job market at that period, after 2-3 weeks, I gave up my waiting. Not a professional way for recruitment.
