Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Oak Hill, NY (US)) in January-2018.

Interview

I first met recruiters at my university's career fair in September and applied the next day. It wasn't until December that they called to set up a January interview. The entire thing was behavioral. Make sure you know STAR. It was also long, between 2 and 3 hours with three interviewers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline in July-2014.

    Interview

    The whole process consisted of one HR phone screen, and one afternoon meeting with three people (two engineers, one HR rep) and a tour of the manufacturing facility. I was told that I would probably need to come back to meet with one other person but that did not happen. Two weeks after the panel interview, I was hired.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Worthing, South East England, England (UK)) in February-2014.

    Interview

    I sent my CV to a recruitment agency to apply for the role. The following day I received a phone call to discuss my experiences, salary expectations and why I was looking for a move. A week later I received a phone call requesting a face to face interview. The interview was scheduled for the following week at a time convenient for me. The interview consisted of a competency based panel interview followed by a presentation and lasted ~1hour 30minutes. After which I had the floor to ask questions. I was informed that it would take ~2weeks to get feed back as they had just started the interview process and had a lot of candidates to interview. On the Monday of the start of the third week following the interview I received a phone call from the recruiter that GSK had made an offer for me, which after some questioning I was happy to accept. GSK had the best onboarding process I have encountered in my professional career. They have a dedicated onboarding profile which was clear, and easy to use.

    Interview Questions

    • As the interview was competency based, it was all about your dealings and experience with difficult people, decisions and how you go about influencing people. The most unexpected question was asking me what my current salary is, this was the first time I have had a hiring manager ask that during the interview. Their technical question was regarding how you would go about conducting an investigation, which I felt wasn't technical at all.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Yes I was able to negotiate my salary for the grade I was being interviewed for. I did not feel any requirement to negotiate as I felt the salary offered was very competitive. I would say if you are going to negotiate have a solid case on why you are worth more than they are offering and what skill you have that will benefit the business greatly.
