    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WuXi AppTec (Phila, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I checked in and had to read an SOP to walk into the facility. I was greeted by the Interim Manager at the time, and spoke with him for 30-45 minutes, before seeing both the Supervisor and a Scientist and speaking with them for the same amount of time. The interview was only supposed to be for 1 hour but I asked a lot of questions, and we had to move to another room so it lasted for 1 hour and 30 minutes. I'd say it went really well as I made them laugh and I asked questions about what they liked about the company, and how long they've been with the company, etc. I would say just dress professionally, speak well, answer the questions to the best of your ability, and be genuine. They want someone who will fit in with the group, so let your personality shine. They did ask about my experience, what equipment I've used, and some technical questions to be prepared to talk minimal science jargon.

    Safety Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WuXi AppTec (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone interview with the hiring manager followed by a Skype interview with HR and three other stakeholders. A job offer was made following the Skype interview and after a little negotiation regarding salary and sign on bonus (in lieu of relocation expenses), I accepted the offer verbally and asked for the opportunity to come to their location to meet with them personally and to look for an apartment. After I travelled to Philadelphia, and paid $450 out of my own pocket for the flight, rental car and to reserve an apartment (because the job required relocation), they decided they would hire a generalist rather than a specialist for the position and withdrew the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly about experience related to the position, which was being created new, and my approach to developing and implementing the program. Standard HR questions about strengths, weaknesses, etc.   Answer Question
