    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the Scientist position at Rockville location. First, it was an recording interview , then 1 hour interview with the manager and 5 hour interview with the whole team including the scientific presentation. The whole process took about 3 months. I waited for few weeks and I got an automatic declined email from GSK. Disappointing!. After all of my effort, could they be decent enough to send out a personal declined email?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline.

    Interview

    Quite lengthy. The aptitude tests and job simulation were interesting but really long. It's best to take a few practice Situational and Quantitative tests beforehand. Overall, the process was unique but I haven't heard from them yet.

    Interview process consisted of an assessment and a job simulation video interview. Completely virtual, so easy to schedule, but I would have preferred to interview with a person directly. Waiting to hear back after the job simulation.

    Interview

    Initial assessment, pretty straight forward.
    Job simulator which includes simple data analysis and two basic hirevue questions (Why GSK?).
    Lastly assessment center which is the final stage of interviews.

    Organized and streamlined as a whole, although more demanding than the typical interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline.

    Interview

    Standard online application followed by 2 online assessments teaching you about GSK and testing for general reading comprehension, logic, and situational responses. Last stage was a virtual assessment (usually in person but moved online due to Covid) that consisted of an interview and 3 different activities, once again focusing on fit with GSK. Overall, a very enjoyable and relaxed interview experience. Highly recommend.

    I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline in December 2020.

    Interview

    I passed the first assessment with multiple situations ( videos ) and some data analysis. Overall it's feasible and it takes around 1h 30 mins. It also targets multiple aspects of your reactions and personality during the the interview.
