    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Cork) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Informal interview and very friendly. The interviewer allows the interviewee to lead the interview and to expand on answers. They held a batch interview process where twenty of us were called up together, this involved a bit of waiting around with the potential competition.

    Interview Questions

    • They were very interested in my employment history and previous roles, this was talked about alot   1 Answer
