Mission: To strive towards Better Health and a Brighter Future for people worldwide through leading innovation in medicine
I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 10 years)
Interesting work, great colleagues, opportunity to work globally
Could do better about developing people from within.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals (San Antonio, TX (US)) in September 2014.
Applied online through a company referral for an Entry Level position. Contacted by phone the next day with a representative from the contract company Quintiles. Representative gave me an overview of the position, pay, benefits, etc.. then proceeded to ask me basic questions regarding my resume, education, and why I want to work in this industry. Had to do a personality assessment online and would be contacted if "approved".
Next day received an email inviting me to the Face-to-face interview in Houston. The email also listed items to bring- brag book, presentation to sell, copies of my resume. Flew me out (all transportation covered) and met with the hiring manager. Be familiar with the STAR format to answer the behavioral type questions. "Tell me about a time..." Very comfortable and easy interview if you come prepared with "stories" to answer the questions. No presentation of "sell me something" was asked.
Couple of days later I received a phone call letting me know I was advancing to the final interview in Dallas. He sent me an email with ways to prepare for the interview, once again flew me out to Dallas where I met with the District Sales Manager and Regional Manager of Takeda. Very comfortable setting, asked me about myself, a few behavioral type questions, why I want to work here and what do I know about the company. Over all very easy process.
Excellent pay, benefits, bonuses, company car... No negotiation necessary
