    Certifid Coach Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at West-Ward Pharmaceutical Corp (Columbus, OH) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very lengthy and contrary to popular belief, if you go through the morning interview process and get invited back to the afternoon session, that doesn't mean you will receive an offer. I am retiring as a Major from over 20 years of active service and the feedback I initially received after the first round of interviews was that I was over qualified. In the end, I did not receive an offer and I was told my answers were too philosophical and not specific enough. I had to answer the questions citing military examples and I guess the information didn't sink in with the hiring managers. They claim to have a commitment to hire veterans but the whole waste of 8 hours led me to believe otherwise. Believe me, they are looking for someone with specific experience in manufacturing. I wont be reapplying as the whole 8 hours was a waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you convince your team to get on board with 'Change" occurring in an organization? What was the result?   Answer Question

    Quality Assurance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    I applied online at the company website and received and email for an interview 1.5 months later. I was interviewed by 3 people at the same time. It was pretty straight forward typical interview questions with the addition of more specific questions regarding my capacity in working with specific instruments.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave me a chemistry test when I first arrived which I was not expecting. I wish that I would have reviewed titration and acid/base reactions prior to the interview because it has been some time since I did such problems. The test also asked to explain instruments such as HPLC, GC, UV, and IR.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at West-Ward Pharmaceutical Corp.

    Interview

    Hiring process took way too long, HR seemed incompetent. Whenever I called HR to ask a question or get information, either no one answered or there was no direct answer. I was told they would get back to me and they never did Interview process was easy. Interviewers were nice and showed the lab.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't quite remember the questions asked. They told me a lot about what the position entailed, I didn't really understand most of it, and then they asked if I could handle it.   Answer Question
