    Average Interview

    Interview

    2 phone screens + onsite interview. All interviews were very similar in content, with a mix of data structures/algorithms questions in addition to machine learning/stats questions. Questions weren't specific to biotech/pharma which is what I had expected and prepared for.

    I was recruited through my university's career gallery event. There were interviews the day after the gallery. Those interviews were short personality interviews comprised of STAR questions. After that, there were interviews at the location of availability. More technical about the position and the fit of the candidate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pfizer.

    Interview

    It was a weird video interview. You were asked questions and given a three minute time limit while looking at yourself on the computer screen. You were not allowed to re-answer the questions or make corrections. Awful experience.

    Senior Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Groton, CT

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pfizer (Groton, CT).

    Interview

    First, a telephonic interview and then, after a month contacted by HR to schedule an onsite interview. The onsite interview included a presentation in the morning followed by a technical and behavioral interview. All of this with a selected number of people. You don't get to interact with the other members of the team which was very strange. I lost interest in the position as there was no culture. Also, they are not quick with the reimbursement process as it can take more than 4 months (very strange experience with a big pharma like Pfizer).
