    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme (Jakarta (Indonesia)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    When you arrive, you will meet your selection board (usually two or three people, including the supervisor of the position and a representative of Human Resources). The team leader will tell you what to expect, and will explain that the board will be recording your answers for later review. Don't let this recording process distract you—it’s a normal part of the interview and necessary to make a complete assessment later on.

    The board will then begin asking you a series of questions to assess your knowledge, abilities and personal suitability.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme (Cambridge, MA) in May 2008.

    Interview

    I was called into a brightly lit but plain conference room. Next thing I know the interviewer wants to do a fifteen-minute roleplaying session where I am trying to convince a college professor that a suggested idea is beneficial to him. He then acts way too difficult and in addition then starts to go off on some roleplaying tangent about how his wife left him and he has no desire to do anything at work let alone our plan for implementing a change. Most awkward and strange interview ever.
