A 30 minutes phone interview with the Hiring Manager. The questions were mainly focused on technical skills. Then was invited for an onsite interview 2 weeks later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals (Boston, MA) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Applied via LinkedIn, received an email within 1 week to schedule a phone interview with recruiter. Follow-up call with HM later that week and then invited for an onsite. Standard format for a scientist role: presentation/seminar followed by a long day of 1:1/2:1 interviews. Everyone was well informed and questions were spot on. Interviewers were very personable and engaging, really conveying the team atmosphere and enjoyment in what they do. Some very direct questions about my experience and the role - which were appreciated.
