    Interview

    The hiring and interview process included applying online, a pre-interview dinner, and two back-to-back interviews. All employees were friendly and the questions were pretty standard. The response took about 2 weeks after that, and they send the offer via email. From applying to response, the entire process was about a month.

    Interview

    Their campus recruitment team is phenomenal. They attend college career fairs, frequently hold post-career fair socials at nearby restaurants, and pre-interview dinners as well.

    The interview consists to two back-to-back meetings with employees at the Company. It may be first with someone from Human Resources followed by a relatively new IS employee.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Boston Scientific.

    Interview

    The company works with outside talent companies to identify potential candidates. So, you will first need to go through a company like Robert Half to be called in for an interview. Once you have an interview with Boston Scientific you will most likely meet with 2 - 3 managers in the same day, if you pass that initial stage you will be brought back another day to meet with the Director and the hiring manager for a final interview. The interviews vary by manager's personal style and are one-on-one.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Boston Scientific (Valencia, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process took about 2 months from the schedule of the 1st phone interview to the offer letter. I had a phone interview with the recruiter and hiring manager, basically went over the job description and asked pretty direct questions about my experience for the job in which I applied for. 3 weeks later I was invited to do face to face interviews with 5 people from the team. They were all given 30 minutes for one on one time with me. I enjoyed this part because you get to meet the team and get a feel of what your getting yourself into. Overall the team was welcoming and intelligent. I had a brief excel test that one of the analyst made. I felt good about the interviews, unfortunately the director of the department wanted to meet with me as well since he was traveling, we couldn't meet for another 3 weeks. I think the process is normally faster.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Boston Scientific.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    Reasons for Declining

    There does not seem to be a life/work balance.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Boston Scientific (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Negotiation

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