    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

    Senior Quality Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Exton, PA

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at West Pharmaceutical Services (Exton, PA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    They have close to 60 potential interns at once in an attempt to find the best. After a brief presentation and a tour of the facility, all of the applicants were put in one room with close to 10 employees. The employees were very nice, but the whole thing felt pretty rushed.

    Senior Technical Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at West Pharmaceutical Services.

    Interview

    full day, 6 or 7 people, chief drawback was heavy reliance of HR-type questions which often had no relevance to the level of experience of the candidate, these questions were often repeated in only slightly different forms by different interviewers. The process seemed to be completely dictated by HR, many interviewers expressed a reluctant necessity to get the required number of HR questions addressed which, to me, puts hiring in the hands of the wrong people. Questions about company culture were also skirted, giving the impression of a dissatisfied work force.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at West Pharmaceutical Services (Tempe, AZ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Straight to the point. The manger was understanding, and allowed me to ask questions about any concerns I may have. We discussed salaries, bonuses, what time I'm expected to be at work, and my times to clock out. I was also given a tour of the warehouse, and met with other employees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at West Pharmaceutical Services in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very fluid and relaxed. I felt comfortable the whole time and very well received and the whole process was the painless. The interview lasted from 8AM until 4PM, each hour I met with a different person who asked me a variety of questions based on personal experience and technical knowledge. Even during lunch they set me up with two very nice people who were new to the company and around my age level to better connect me to people on my level. If you are thinking of applying here I highly recommend it.
