    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Accellent in March 2010.

    Interview

    It was a painfully slow and prolonged process with many long periods of time between interactions with the company. They should consider using a professional recruitment agency to handle their hires. They try to hire without spending money on it and the result is that they get what they hire - sorry to say but true.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you comfortable working in an environment where there is a high turnover of senior employees?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They lo ball your salary offer and expect you to ask for more. Not exactly respectful of the candidate but when you are driven by the mighty dollar...
