    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Amgen.

    Interview

    Behavioural based interview highly structured Q and A. Minimal chit chat. Run by recruiter line manager present was quite unprofessional. Overall duration less than one hour. No follow up with any additional questions. Just moved to next question on the list.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. Quite predictable questions. For example tell us about your proudest achievement?   1 Answer
