    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lonza Biologics (Portsmouth, NH) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Phase I is Phone interview with Hiring Manager lasting lasting 30 minutes to an hour; All technical questions.

    Phase II is face to face interview panel interview with 4-5 prospective team members, all sitting across from you and firing hard ball questions at you to evaluate your soft skills (Emotional Intelligence and Resilience because you will need it).people are the most challenging to deal with so you need a tremendous amount of people skills to make it

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle Co-workers and subordinates that disagree and directly refuse to apply/comply with a directive or a solution you have provided?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It took 2 weeks of back and forth with the HR manager to agree on a mutually acceptable offer. I has paid at the 95th percentile of my salary range.
