    Pharmaceutical Scientist Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MedPharm (Guildford, England (UK)) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewer seemed cold and condescending throughout the interview (more so than Alan Sugar!), but this may have been a deliberate test to see how a potential employee might react to stress, and to test their assertiveness. Be prepared! Very sharp and direct manner, which might appeal to certain people. The interview was followed by a brief lab tour, given by a friendly member of staff who was happy to answer questions about the work and company. The work environment appears to be very pressurised, but highly rewarding to those who thrive under the pressure.
