    Senior Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KBI Biopharma (Durham, NC (US)).

    Interview

    Questions weren't too bad but the in person format was a bit brutal. 4 hours, no breaks, 8 30-minute sessions with directors one-on-one or with 2-3 potential peers. Everyone was very nice and honest about the job expectations. Wish I had a bit more time to ask questions, and a break or two. The previous phone interview focused on technical background. Overall the process was about 2 weeks from phone interview to offer.

    Manager/Associate Director Engineering Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at KBI Biopharma (Boulder, CO (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    The interview lasted a full 4 hours. The hiring manager did most of the talking, posed some questions to me and in the last 5 minutes finally asked if I had any questions. At this point there really wasn't any time to ask questions. One person I interviewed with felt negative right from the moment I walked into the office. Overall, it just didn't feel friendly or inviting. HR is unorganized and most likely would have ghosted me if I would not have been continually attempting to follow up. So, I would say that the interview process was extremely disrespectful to the candidate. Considering that the request to hire someone who is respectful is in the job description KBI should first give what they are seeking to hire. I am disgusted by how I was treated in this process.

    In-Process Support Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KBI Biopharma (Durham, NC (US)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Phone interview: The first interview was rescheduled for the next day due (In-Process interviewer) being "unexpectedly" out of the office. Interview time was for 11:00am, received the her call at 11:15am. First sentence from her was, "I don't want to waste my time or yours so let me tell you about the job duties". Was told I would be needed to cover weekends and 2nd shift during production. I told her I didn't have a problem with this but I wanted to know if there was a shift differential. Then all of a sudden she couldn't "hear" me... acting like there was a poor connection and she hung up. I called the direct number back to have an operator reconnect me. No one answered after being transferred and their system wouldn't allow for voice messages (assuming Corp. voicemail inbox is full?). I called again, sadly more than 10 times, with no one answering and no ability to leave a message. I searched through email correspondence to find the HR number and extension as well as a written email to (HR Employee). Moments later (HR Employee) called me and I explained the situation to her. She informs me (In-Process interviewer) had emailed her about the phone interview and how she tried to call back but it went to voicemail. I informed (HR Employee) that I had screenshots of my call log showing no incoming calls or voicemails.

    So in short, management is very disrespectful and knowingly lies to HR. Can only imagine what it would be like to work under her as an employee. Great first impression...

    Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KBI Biopharma (Raleigh, NC (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Multi-department personnel interviews. Job offer within a week. Most typical questions were asked. Difficult to return questions because you interview with several people in your group. Theyre really looking for you to fill the role they need and fit with their culture. Very kind and professional, slightly laid back with a couple members.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KBI Biopharma in June 2018.

    Interview

    Was contacted via email for a phone interview, which was only 15 minutes. Shortly after, I was contacted to set up an in-person interview the next week. The interview was with two managers separately, and, to finish was with HR. I was contacted 2 weeks later or so, to speak with one of the managers, and was given the option for another similar position. The position I interviewed for was internally filled, and was offered to take their place.
