I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (Less than a year)
Large organization but is nimble and runs like a small shop in Canada. I would highly recommend especially for those in the sciences! Great atmosphere, strong leadership team and HR actually knows that they’re doing which is refreshing! Great benefits plan and DC pension plan matching contributions are very competitive.
Global AZ can really complicate things for the local market but this is common in other multinational organizations. I would also say that the global organization is very sophisticated yet they lack rigour and can lack context for the local markets.
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Mississauga, ON) in February-2017.
Applied online and was invited for an interview a week or two later. Very short interview with about 4 or 5 questions lasting around 20 minutes. It was a very informal relaxed interview, felt more like chatting with a colleague and the interviewer was very easy to talk to. Questions were mainly STAR based. Was about a month before final decisions were made and everyone was notified whether they got the position or not.
