Lilly Interview Style

You will need to submit your profile online and bring a copy of your transcripts to the interview.

At Lilly we use a behavioral interviewing system that is based on the idea that past behaviors and experiences will predict how qualified a candidate is for a position.

The system has two portions. First, the dimensions portion requires a candidate to have certain qualifications. Secondly, the interview portion has an interviewer ask each candidate the same set of questions to determine the best fit.

Review your resume and come prepared to share your experiences and qualifications.

Be connected. Be inspired. Be a catalyst.
