Quality Engineer Interview

Quality Engineer

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Boston Scientific.

Interview Details The hiring process is very long and the recruiter did not seem to know the interviewing steps or the process well. You interview with many people and they make changes to the interview times with no regard to the interviewee. The recruiter never seems to be available or answers calls in a timely matter.

Interview Question – Not difficult but personal. It seems they try to find out if you will be a type of person who does not have outside responsibilities to insure you will work long days. The questions I found odd were more on the personal side like what your hobbies are and family life.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – There does not seem to be a life/work balance.

Manufacturing Engineer I Interview

Manufacturing Engineer I
San Jose, CA (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Boston Scientific.

Interview Details One phone interview: Thirty minutes, very business-like, purely about factual knowledge and previous experience.
One in-house interview: 4+ hour interview with 5 different people, one at a time for ~45 min each. Final person was director level for 1.5 hours. Interviewers were Senior Engineer level and above. Some factual questions, but mostly personality and experience questions. It was important to them to find an employee that would fit with company culture. Interview was relaxed and not stressful. Conversation with director was about career goals and company culture.

The company moved very quickly from the phone interview forward. An offer letter was sent within two days of the in person interview.

Interview Question – Several technical questions about statistics. Meaning and significance of mean, median, mode, standard deviation, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiated a signing bonus. The company was immovable on salary, but a signing bonus was settled on due to another competing offer.

Senior Manager Interview

Senior Manager
Natick, MA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Boston Scientific in September 2012.

Interview Details BSC actively recruited me. Interview process was pretty laid back until the end when it was time to negotiate start date. First interview was screening with HR, then had phone call with hiring manager, then trip to Natick. I was leaving from a competitor and there was an issue with comp owed to me from my former employer. I was constantly reminded that there was a raise in pay, and that I should be happy joining such a great company for the right reasons. They also reminded me there were layoffs at my current company. I didn't budge and stalled two months. When they realized I hadn't been laid off and I wouldn't leave unless they sweetened the pot, they caved. HR was very pushy, asked some questions that were borderline inappropriate. Seemed like there was a lot of unnecessary red tape around title, comp, etc.

Interview Question – Do you think you will like working for your boss? Do you think you will like the culture here- we don't want to make a mistake?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I took my time and stalled. They ended up giving me what I asked for.
