    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with the hiring manager, phone screen with an HR recruiter, and then three 1-hour panel interviews with senior engineers and managers. Questions were mostly either behavioral or about my background, past work experience, interests, etc. I had the opportunity to ask many of my own questions and learn about the open position in detail.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online, No response from the in house recruiters. Got the interview through a recruiter. A brief phone interview with the internal recruiter first followed by another phone interview with the hiring manager. Then onsite interview with the hiring manager and the team. Depending on who the hiring manager is, the interviewee may end up with different members of the interview team and the level of interview difficulty. For device QA role, you may get members of Engineering interview you. But the funny thing is that for Engineering positions, QA is never part of their interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It seemed like a fairly typical interview process for a corporate position: pre-screen with the recruiter, phone interview with the hiring manager, a day of interviews (30 min - 1 hour) on-site with potential colleagues. The culture is very welcoming and that was clear during the interview process.
