    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SNBL USA.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview, typical STAR (behavioral) questions, lasted about half and hour. I was then brought in for an in person interview that lasted about 2 hours. It was 3 different panel interviews, first was with the department that I would be working with, second was with the manager and director of the department and lastly I interviewed with the HR representative. All the interviews were typical, focusing more on my past experience with a few behavioral questions thrown in. Nothing terrible, much of what I spoke about was repeated with the other panels.

    My feeling for the first two interviews was more if my personality would mesh with theirs. Did they like me as a person, and less to do with my skills.

    Interview Questions

    • Can't really remember a specific questions, again it was very typical, however they did want to know what relevant GLP experience I had.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Waste of time! If you respect your time and energy do not even bother with application to this company and even further wasting your time for an interview. It is definitely safe and secure to stay away from this company, and not to damage your nerves.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SNBL USA (Seattle, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    They took very long to get back to me after I applied for the position and turned me down after such a long interview and yet their senior staff members were less qualified the I was and the position is always open. I wounder if they were afraid to chose me since I had more experience then the supervisor herself. They were very unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SNBL USA (Everett, WA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Multiple people interviews, from HR to the department staff. They wanted to find if the right match had the right chemistry for the department. One of the department interviewer was very impersonal, but later you find out how critical is in the determination of getting hired or not.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SNBL USA (Everett, WA).

    Interview

    My interview took place after graduation with a B.S. in ISS, and though I had several years of call-center technical support experience, I was still very new to the hands-on portion of the IT field. The interview was a multi-step process. First I interviewed in a small room with one of the technical support team members, of which there were four. Then the full group came in, then their supervisor shortly thereafter. Worst interview I've ever experienced in my life. The all-male group seemed condescending and critical. They intimidated me with several technical, situational questions that were highly complex, proprietary, and multi-part in nature, and I was required to answer each of them verbally. The supervisor picked apart my resume, grilling me about how it was that I felt that I was qualified for this position with such a diverse work history. He made several insensitive comments, and for much of the interview I felt as though I was under attack. I'm normally a very confident individual, but I just wasn't mature enough for this interview. It was too much for me. When I reported what happened to my job-placement counselor through my school, she was taken aback. Not only was she shocked by how they treated me, she stated they knew that I had just graduated from school, and was looking for experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SNBL USA.

    Interview

    My interview was many years ago. I must have met half the company during the day long first interview process. Since then I don't think the process has changed much. I think the company places some amount of emphasis on finding the right fit, but doesn't really expect folks to stay much beyond 2 years.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was not negotiation, though I would encourage people to shoot for as high a salary they can get on entry because the raises are not large once you're in there.
