    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Huntingdon Life Sciences (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, lots of hands on training, ability to train and learn various different skills and tasks

    Cons

    unpredictable schedule, long hours, management does not protect techs and constantly looks to pass on blame

    Advice to Management

    when hiring from other CROs and pharma companies, new hires should not have priority over techs who have been with HLS for a longer period of time

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Huntingdon Life Sciences.

    Interview

    Sent in my CV with a cover letter to the company and received an interview within a few days. Went in for the interview; a nice experience, very friendly interviewers with a mix of questions; most competency based questions a few technical ones, though they didn't seem too bothered if you didn't know the answers to the technical ones, which surprised me! Received an offer within a few days!

    Interview Questions

    • How do you work out the concentration of a solution (extremely basic Chemistry question for someone with a BSc in Chemistry!)   Answer Question
