Schweres Gespräch

Bewerbung

Ich habe mich über eine Hochschule oder Universität beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei GlaxoSmithKline (King of Prussia, PA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

Vorstellungsgespräch

Two phone interviews consisting of behavioral questions and past research projects, and one on site interview consisting of talk with in person interviews all day. Most interviewers were very nice / laid back and seemed like softball questions but then others seemed interested in playing a good cop / bad cop routine.

Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

  • Questions went the full way from some more algorithmic descriptions to biological questions about study design. The length of the process and diversity of the questions rather than any specific question was a bit tiring for me but it was also the first time in my life I did it.   Frage beantworten

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 8 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Dezember 2016 bei GlaxoSmithKline (Stevenage, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    context: I am trying to get an industry research job directly after graduating with a PhD in bioinformatics.
    Applied to job ad on website. Phone interview 2 weeks later. Then I got invited for a 5 hour in person interview in Stevenage, UK. The company paid for travel expenses and organized a driver to pick me up at LHR airport. The inteview consisted of 4 30 minutes individual interviews ( hiring manager and one other group leader/director, 1 manager of communication between departments, 1 prospective colleague). Lunch with 2 prospective colleagues at their cafeteria. 45 minutes presentation to about 10 people about my PhD research and finally 1 hour panel (4 people, all of them scientists) interview with a personality/behavioural part and a technical part.

    * There was some last-minute planning. I did not get an agenda in advance and my talk was changed from 45 minutes plus time for questions to 45 minutes including numerous questions on the evening before the interview.

    * People were friendly and the atmosphere was quite relaxed for an interview. Dresscode seems to be casual to smart casual. I (and the driver) were the only people in a full suit.

    * The research campus in Stevenage is huge and contains thousands of researchers. They have huge open offices and often little knowledge about what their colleagues are working on.

    * Everyone asked about motivation to do industry research/choosing GSK. They expected detailed answers.

    * In each part of the interview it was expected that I ask numerous questions about the job.

    * They told me that that will interview two other candidates and decide for one of us.

    The interview was good, interviewers were friendly and patient to listen to what I say. The questions where mostly related to my earlier experience, and projects I worked on. Followed by a few of the HR type questions like where do I see myself in next 10 years, why did i chose GSK over other, etc. Overall it was a good experience
