    Assistant Biologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Clayton, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Talecris (Clayton, NC) in April 2011.

    Interview

    1:2, pretty standard behavioral questions (practice them - you can find a good list on the internet), asked about your past job duties, asked why should I hire you. Overall, I did not feel pressured. Pretty standard interview. You will also have to have standard medical screening, which includes a very easy strength test, a drug test, and and sight test.

    Interview Questions

    • Why should I hire you?   1 Answer
    • Study your behavioral questions. Trust me, you be asked at least 3 of them.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    In this case, since I was a contractor there as really no room for negotiation, the hourly rate was fair. The staffing agency did pay overtime, and you got a little bit of vacation time every month. Also, after 30 days the staffing agency gave you holiday pay, which is pretty rare I would think. They offered insurance as well, but the health insurance wasn't that great, but the dental was on par with what I had seen in the past.

    Physician Substitute/Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rockford, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Talecris (Rockford, IL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    The person that interviewed me is no longer with the company. She was the Center Manager and she was great. She was very friendly and had an enthusiasm and a passion for her job. She was dedicated to bringing employees on that wanted to work, and grow. Initially, we met in her office, I answered the formalities, why do you want to work here... what about nursing do you enjoy... how do you think you can contribute. We then continued the interview with a tour of the facility, while asking questions, allowing me to ask questions about the business. It was professional, yet casual.

    Interview Questions

    • She didn't throw me any curve balls. I was expecting it. I was actually referred by a current employee, so I was asked how we knew each other. I was also asked why my referral referred me. So it was an opportunity to highlight my strengths. My toughest question is always what is your biggest weakness. Honestly? Punctuality is mine, but I can't say that!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was surprised at the amount I was initially offered at $22.00/hr, but that's because it was my first real career position and I was excited not to be making minimum wage. In hindsight, I would negotiate. They are open to negotiation, even if it doesn't get very far.
