    Both phone interview and on-site interview asked about behavioural questions. The interviewers seemed to be friendly, but it was very difficult to tell whether they were satisfied by your answers.

    Of course they asked you abut the biggest weakness, or your the biggest strengths.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline.

    Interview Details

    Very last minute phone interview request; interviewer requested a very rigid STAR method for interview. Followed by onsite interview for two days while interviewers observe how each candidate work in a team environment. I would have preferred the interview process to be explained sooner and did not have to schedule multiple interviews last minute.
