    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hikma.


    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


    I took the offer as is
