The interview process is quite efficient. 1st informal chat with hiring manager for 30min and scheduled my 2nd interview on the same day. 2nd interview includes a seminar presentation and 6 30min individual interviews with the team members. The whole process is roughly one and half day. Unfortunately, I was not selected because they're interviewing other candidates in the meantime.

I interviewed at Novartis (Basel)
The recruiting process was fast and the interview was set fast as well. First interview was a online one-to-one with the responsible manager/supervision for the internship. It was actually quite nice. But I didn't get the offer in the end. I guess it's just a preference decision at the end of the day.

Human Resource interview follow by a Three person panel interview later in the week. The interview process was fairly quick once it began. However, it took several months to be contacted after initial application was made. I was asked if I would consider relocating, only to learn there was not a Relo package being offered. Did negotiate a nominal amount to assist with Relo, though no where near what was needed.
