    Product Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Applied Medical in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was fairly basic, started out with a brief summary of myself. Most of the questions were related to items on my resume, what challenges I encountered with prior employers, how I met those challenges and so on. No real curveballs or unexpected questions. There was a panel of interviewers who all asked questions in turn, but they didn't break from the standard formula of asking questions about my resume. It was actually quite awkward at times, it didn't seem like the interviewers had any other questions prepared that were unique to the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly none of the questions in this interview were relatively difficult or unexpected, as I mentioned, all the questions were related to items on my resume, which I was given a copy of prior to beginning the interview.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Applied Medical in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    A hiring manager contacted via email for an in-person interview. Then, you showed up with a full room of people. Then, they NEVER tell you by phone or email if you were selected to the next round or rejected. Several emails to the manager were not replied. He (no name disclosed here) ended up blocking my email address.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions were difficult at all. All standard questions. It's a panel interview making interfacing very difficult but it saved time for candidates.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Applied Medical in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for an in person interview after speaking with the recruiters at a career fair. After the career fair, I went online to apply for the positions I was interested in. HR asked me to fill out a paper application to bring to the interview. The interview was a panel style with 5 interviewers in a conference room. They asked about interest in the company, knowledge of the company's products, future career interests, background, skills, and experiences. The interview was 45-60 minutes long.

    Clinical Research Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Applied Medical in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very Slow, felt like dealing with people who just started there themselves. The questions felt like they were trying to see if I would fit in with the cool kids. I had heard this company has a very clique like atmosphere and if they like you, you are good, but make someone in the family unhappy and your gone in a flash.

    Product Development Engineer-Simulation Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Applied Medical in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    All the resumes are directed to email address of department manager you are applying for. So its pretty informal.
    I had two rounds of interview.
    Received first informal call going over my resume from manager within minutes of submitting resume. Scheduled for conference call with panel in two weeks.
    Interview questions were pretty straight forward and short round about 25 mins, as to what i did in previous positions and how i can contribute to this position. Though it was panel interview only one person asked all questions.
    Never received any communication whether they decided to move with another candidate or not even after following up.

    Operations Associate Interview

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Applied Medical in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applying online is extremely difficult. The career fair was the first place where I met their reps and recruiters. Was called and they set up an in person interview.

    I was interviewed by 4 members. The first two questions were "do you know about our company's products and the position you are applying for?" If you get these wrong then its pretty much downhill from there as there is one person that interview and sways the opinions of the other members.

    3 seemed like ok people. Beware of a young girl that was an 'assistant manager'. She was late to the interview but asks the most questions. She asks questions where if you didn't have the right answer, she would respond with "that wasn't what I was really looking for...but ok...". Sways the other interviewers opinions. For a girl that just graduated and is only a year out of college to talk to new grads like they are next to nothing is not professional.

    If your interview is late in the day, hardly anyone will attend the panel that's supposed to interview you, and those who do attend will be in a bad mood. Try to schedule your interview early in the day!

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Applied Medical in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    One phone call, one 30-45 minute in person interview with a random assortment of questions regarding my resume (this was for a first full time job straight out of college). Interview process is not organized, be prepared by being able to explain and sell the skills you've learned from projects and previous work experience. The work culture and people are friendly, positive, and open. Many are overworked but still willing to help.
