    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Exton, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at West Pharmaceutical Services (Exton, PA).

    Interview

    Resumes were selected based on GPA and prior experience. About 50 prospective applicants were selected for a laid-back interview session where prospective interns would mingle with current employees. About a month and a half later, I got a call saying I had an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • It was mostly a discussion, so you asked questions back and forth with current employees. They didn't really have anything set up to ask, except maybe questions about elements of your resume.   Answer Question

    Interview

    First, there was a phone interview with someone from Talent Acquisition. This wasn't that bad; they basically just told you about the position. But after that, there was an interview with the hiring manager, which was a little harder. It was mostly behavioral questions.

    I still haven't heard back, so I guess I didn't get it; but it would have been nice to receive an update after emailing a couple times.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions: about motivation, teamwork, communication, etc.   Answer Question

    Senior Quality Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at West Pharmaceutical Services (Exton, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Four one hour interviews with various levels of coworkers/management. Standard aptitude/scenario questions to fit within company culture.

    Initial contact was from Human Resources to set up phone screen, followed by manager phone screen (After being hired I was told this can happen, for my personal experience I skipped this step in the process), then scheduled on-site interview with team/management. 1:1 one hour with each interviewer. After the interview took about a week to get official offer and started 2 weeks after that.
