    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Shionogi & Co. (Florham Park, NJ) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied at the recommendation of a current employee. Initial phone screen with HR; in-person interview shortly thereafter. Very positive, friendly, timely interview with senior directors and VPs. Were nice enough to set up a second interview with would-be colleagues at my request, albeit a month later. HR kept in touch on a weekly basis for the next six weeks, finally letting me know that they decided not to extend an offer.

    Supplier Quality Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shionogi & Co. (Atlanta, GA) in August 2009.

    Interview

    Initial phone pres-screen with the hiring manager. Then flown in for face-to-face interview with hiring manager and co-worker. Additional interviews conducted with Quality Director, HR representative. Schedule somewhat disorganized due to travel schedules of interviewers. There did not seem to be a set procedure for defining questions or a consistent approach between interviewers. Total interviews took less than 1 full-day.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you interested in this job, since it was a lower level and lower paying job than my current role.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate, was informed that I was at the top of the range for salary even with pay-decrease from previous position. My recruiter is now an in-house employee, so may have discouraged negotiation due to move internally.

    Interview

    A very professional environment. Offices were very modern in nice real estate. HR was professional and friendly. The people I did meet and see appeared to be relaxed and happy to be there. The interview questions were practical to the position and experience-based. There were no "off the wall" questions, surveys or evaluations.
