    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tarrytown, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tarrytown, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Siemens in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied for another Biochemist position, but my resume was intercepted. Received a call from the supervisor about a week later and had a short phone interview. Sixty minute in person interview the following day with two supervisors present. Also received tour of the laboratory (a bit messy, not entirely impressive). Ten days later, received an invitation to interview with potential co-workers and director of department, but declined due to distance (facility is approx. 60mi from my residence). Interviewers were very friendly and straightforward.

    Senior Scientist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    This is the most unprofessional and rude interview I have ever had. The whole process was pretty typical, HR phone screening, HM phone screening and then onsite. Several things made me really disappointed at Siemens diagnostic, once my dream company.
    During the onsite interview, someone indirectly asked my sexual orientation; Someone would laugh quite a few times whenever I did not give the right answer and told me right away that question was so simple. More outrageously, he would paraphrase my question even if I gave the right answer. I had another friend who was also interviewed at the same group. The same guy told her her research was useless. It took three month to get my reimbursement and they made a mistake and it took another month to reimburse me with the right amount. Their site is like a big factory and has a very untasty cafe.

    Other interviewers were good, I have to say. Later I know, this rude guy had a friend who was also being interviewed at the same time.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    The interview process takes study in itself. It is a behavioral approach and you are run through the gamut with various members of staff and management. It felt like being waterboarded. It took three hours and then found out they went ahead and hired from within, so that it felt like a huge waste of my time to meet some exterior interview requirement.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Siemens in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, I stop the interview process after the phone interview. The recruiter was unprepared and very rude. That told me about the company culture right there. The phone interview was not an interview just a screening process, where the recruiter clearly hadn't even looked over my resume.

    Question asked-

    Are you employed?
    What is your current/ last salary?
    Can you give me a specify number?
    What is your expected salary ?
    You expecting to make X amount when you are making Y amount.
    Can you give me your top 4 Financial Analyst qualities?
