    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme (Cambridge, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied April 13th.
    Received an email for a phone interview five days later, and was informed right at the beginning of that call that they "had already identified a top candidate," but wanted to finish initial phone interviews anyway.
    I was later informed that I was no longer being considered for the role.
    One week later was informed there was a "change in our hiring direction" and I was offered an in-person interview.
    I interviewed four days later in Cambridge with five members of the team for a little over 4 hours.
    On May 16th I was asked to come back to Cambridge for another 30-minute conversation and asked if I was sure I was the right fit / wanted the job.
    I did not hear from anyone until I sent an email on June 12th and was informed the role had been offered to another external candidate, about two months after submitting my application.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme (Framingham, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had three interviews with the company: one from a hiring manager in HR, one from the hiring manager in the department, and another onsite in person interview. The onsite interview included a hour long seminar. Overall, my seminar went well, but I don't think I prepared well for the interview questions with the 6-8 sequential interviewers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme (Ridgefield, NJ).

    Interview

    Review your background experience, easy HR questions to cover workplace situations, casual exchange to gauge your attitude and compatibility with the people you'll be working with. The interviewers will try to give you an idea of the work they've done, but its difficult for them to do so in pharmaceuticals.
