    Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shire (Boston, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen for Massachusetts position with a New Jersey Recruiter: began professional enough with a general conversation regarding my background and position ending with a number of the usual general questions. The position was very interesting - a majority of the role encompassed the work I enjoy most!

    Interview Questions

    • Recruiter seemed knowledgeable enough regarding the company vs. the position. Managed the call using all the standard responses and follow thru.
      The phone screen became uncomfortable when asked - what is your current salary and bonus structure?
      I was very disappointed when the recruiter became angry and in a scolding tone advised that in order to move forward in the interview process current salary and bonus structure must be provided.
      Didn't appreciate where they went in the conversation - wasn't interested in moving forward   1 Answer

    Government Pricing Analyst II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Exton, PA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shire (Exton, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Met with 5 people back to back at the Exton, PA location for a total of 3 hours. 4 weeks and two follow-up emails and no response whatsoever from the internal Shire recruiter or any of the people that I met with. Very unprofessional. Leaving the interview, I was on the fence, but this has made me a solid "thanks, but no thanks" if and when I ever hear back from the company. They've recently moved into a building in Exton that used to be someone else's. It has low ceilings, almost no windows and row upon row of cubicles. It felt like a cave. It did make me appreciate my current employer and work environment more though, so I guess that's something positive.

    Interview Questions

    • Very standard interview questions. Describe a strength and weakness, Tell me about a time when... , etc. No curveballs.   Answer Question
