    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Brentford, England (UK)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The process started by the exchange of a few emails with an HR manager. After the submition of my CV and cover letter, she put me in contact with my future manager. Then, I got a phone interview with this manager and her boss. After several questions on my CV and my experience, they asked me why GSK, why Procurement and ultimately, to describe a discount I had nogatiated in my life.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a discount you have negotiated in your life. It could be anything.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was asked what were my expectations in terms of salary. I replied I was not asking much but I wanted to be financially independent so I would appreciate to have enough for food and accomodation. The manager said, without mentionning any amount, that they would give me a small compensation. Eventually, £1200/ month was more than enough
