    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Alkermes (Waltham, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very professional and thorough interviews but the recruiting process is also long and stretched out. Applied online was contacted via email by the HR recruiter. Initial screening type questions followed by phone interview with hiring manager. Was called for a face to face interview which lasted for half a day. Multiple back to back interviews with Senior Directors, Directors and VP.
