    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals (Minneapolis, MN (US)).

    Interview

    First had brief phone interview with HR, followed by phone interview with hiring manager, then invited in for on site interview. On site interview was with 4 separate individuals, each lasting 30 minutes. Following the individual interviews the hiring manager took me on a tour of the facility. I was told they would have a decision made shortly after. I followed up after not hearing back and was informed that one of the managers was off sick so they were unable to make a decision until he returned. Followed up again 6 weeks later, this time they claimed the company was reorganizing and would have a new hiring manager. Few weeks after that I contacted them again to see how/when they would be proceeding and was told "don’t hesitate to stay in touch for future opportunities"
