I had a phone interview with an excellent recruiter in Illinois who really cared about me getting the position. She has been extremely helpful. A week later another coordinator from New Jersey set up my on-site interviews. She was very pleasant and helpful, as well and helped me to prepare for the on-site interview. She answered all my questions and really cared about me getting the position too! It takes a couple of weeks or so for the company to select candidates after the on-site interview. BUT the recruiters are great. They will communicate w/ you and help you. The on-site interview took a couple of hours. Security very quickly signed me in w/ the receptionist, who helped me out alot because I got lost and I met with supervisors. It’s straightforward. They’re nice but don’t waste time. No trick questions. The supervisor I spoke to was very intelligent and really cared about the machines and the product. He showed me videos and explained in detail the responsibilities of the position. He answered all of my questions and didn’t laugh at me. Very nice place w/ thoughtful people. I like them.
The process for interview is broken and it takes a long time.

Interviews are pretty straight forward. Focus on your experiences that are relevant to the job.

The interview process was rigorous. They asked me questions such as how I would help the company and help the division where I was assigned to work. I was hired during a tough transition period for the Quality Control division. They were low on employees and labor, and they needed someone who could do the assignments in a fast amount of time during the summer. I was enthusiastic about the opportunity and I responded by saying that I was prepared and ready to do whatever tasks I am assigned. During the interview, I did not mention pay or overtime, I just explained that I was ready to do whatever was assigned, so I became a dependable employee to the Quality Control division
I felt that working for Catalent was very fulfilling. I made a lot of friends and references over there, and they were very thoughtful in helping me every step of the way.
