Territory Manager Interview

Territory Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Boston Scientific in September 2013.

Interview Details – Contact is typically done through a recruiter to begin the process and then your resume is sent to a hiring manager for review. From there it is a phone screen which is crucial to securing a face to face interview. After this step, there is typically a 2 step interview process that will decide your fate.

Interview Question – They gave a list of things that are important to you in a career and asked you to rank them in your importance (1 to 5).   Answer Question

Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Manufacturing Engineer
Spencer, IN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Boston Scientific.

Interview Details – I was set up with an interview from a recruiter at a career fair. Initial interview consisted of a 30 minute phone screen with behavioral questions after which I was contacted the following day and flown out to Spencer, IN the next week. When I arrived I found out that the position that I was interviewing for was already filled and I was now interviewing for a Production Supervisor position. Questions were all behavioral, other than an inexperienced interviewer asking if I was married and what my wife thought of Indiana. The hiring manager for the position took a phone call 5 minutes into the interview and left. In addition it was sort of distracting to watch one of the interviewers openly mark a grade sheet on a 1-5 scale as we were conducting the interview.

Interview Question – Are you married?   Answer Question

Trainer Interview

Trainer
Fremont, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Boston Scientific.

Interview Details – BSC found my resume on Monster and contacted me. I had a phone screening interview with a recruiter, and a week or so later they scheduled a face-to-face interview. I spoke with 3 people in a row, not including the hiring manager. A couple weeks later they scheduled me for 2 phone interviews. Later they called me back for yet another face to face interview, this time with the hiring manager and then her boss. Three more weeks go by (I was travelling) and then they had me return a 3rd time to campus to meet with an HR person. It wasn't to receive an offer, but just another interview. The trail has cooled since then despite my follow-up phone calls and email to the recruiter.

Interview Question – I was blind-sided by the question about where I wanted to be in 5 yrs, also about something I tried and failed. My bad for not prepping on those.   Answer Question
