    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at AstraZeneca in November 2011.

    Interview

    An out-sourced employment coordinator contacted me to schedule an interview. After meeting with him, the next phase of the process was a panel interview where four managers interviewed me. Two of the managers asked behavioral questions, based on past experiences. The other two managers appeared to be inexperienced at interviewing and had no follow-up questions. The managers appeared to disagree as to the next steps, the qualifications of the individuals they were searching for, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you didn't have the information necessary to do your job. How did you go about getting it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    If you have similar experience, ask about additional vacation policy; inquire about hiring bonus. Otherwise, nothing unusual.
