Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

Interview

Initially contact by a woman for a phone screening, then moved forward to speak with an HR rep who had me come in for 4 half an hour interviews on site. Everyone in the office/lobby was very friendly. First three interviews were very easy and the people were friendly and nice. The last interview was a bit tough with a good amount of technical questions.

Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview

    You are escorted into a room where a range of 6-7 employees ask you questions. Majority of the questions are basic organizational behavior and very, very repetitive. There was one interview question that was asked that took some brain power to answer and it was a chromatography filtration rate question. After you answer the same question 7 times you are then asked the same question 7 times. They can definitely make the interview process more efficient and not so time consuming.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (Rensselaer, NY).

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen, lasted about 10 minutes. Basic questions about the job expectations (they'll ask if you feel comfortable working weekends/holidays, lifting heavy objects, and a few other random questions). Then was called back for an on-site interview in Rensselaer. If you are interviewing for Clinical Manufacturing your interview will be longer than Large Scale Manufacturing. I had six 30 minute interviews with varying levels of leadership. Only two were 1 on 1, the others were with 2 or 3 managers. The questions were both behavioral and technical, leaning more towards the behavioral side. They will also ask for your shift preferences. Be honest, if you don't want to work weekends, then don't say you will work that shift. I heard back less than 2 weeks later with an offer. Your offer call will include the shift you are chosen for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (Rensselaer, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Everyone was extremely friendly. Rotated through thirty minute sessions with multiple supervisors. Whole interview lasted three hours and questions begin to become to feel redundant as all interviewers ask similar questions. Was asked a Chromatography question which required the application of basic math.
