I interviewed at Vertex Pharmaceuticals (New York, NY)

Interview

I was excited to interview; however, I think this company doesn't want to hire anyone outside of Boston. I was qualified but sounded like my location was a problem. I met with ~8 people.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Vertex Pharmaceuticals in May 2021

Interview

First had a phone screen with recruiter and then a Zoom call with someone on the team. Then there is a full interview where you give a ~45 minute seminar and talk with 5-6 people. The recruiter asked about salary in the middle of the interview so be prepared. They never got back to me with a decision after a month but it was overall an average experience.

Interview Questions
  • Why Vertex? Also people will ask questions about your seminar, specifically the technical aspects and experimental design and decisions.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Vertex Pharmaceuticals (Boston, MA) in Apr 2021

Interview

Phone screen with HR recruiter then Virtual interview with just the hiring manager and later an all-day panel interview (virtual due to COVID). Received feedback quickly and at every step of the process. Didn’t receive an offer but the overall process was better than most, everyone on the panel was knowledgeable in their respective responsibilities. All day commitment for multiple 1:1 interviews seems a bit much because the same questions get asked over and over, and especially since most candidates are interviewing at multiple places, you end up using quite a bit of vacation time since you would need to take many days off.
