    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Biomet.

    Interview

    The interview was well organized and very detailed. We reviewed the technical aspects of the job as well as the day to day responsibilities. I went out to lunch with a small group of prospective colleagues. I got to meet at least eight people at the company in four small group interview sessions. All in all it was a good experience.

    Field Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Biomet (Albuquerque, NM).

    Interview

    My initial interview was with the branch sales manager. My second interview was with a regional manager, the branch manager, and a senior sales representative. The interview was very relaxed with easy or basic questions. Your goal is to make the regional manager feel comfortable with your personality and skill sets. For the fist interview, I sat and waited 30 minutes before being called in. For the second, I waited 45 minutes. Keep in mind the sales team is "busy" and as a field assistant your job is to work around and support them.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were open ended to get you talking and open a dialogue. You are basically making a sales pitch to other salesman. Make sure you come prepared with at least three good questions to ask them.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The hourly pay rate was non-negotiable. Even working part time you can negotiate for health insurance, especially if you are driving the delivery van.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Biomet in August 2014.

    Interview

    It was a quick phone interview with the direct supervisor. They really just wanted to know why you want the position? It was not hard but it was a just a contracting job and they really need people. So I can not speak to all the other positions.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Biomet.

    Interview

    Initial contact and phone interview through human resources. After a short phone interview with the hiring manager, I was scheduled for an in person interview. I met with the team and again with the hiring manager. The interview was very informal and they provided a lot of information regarding the position. The questions for me were targeted towards the job responsibilities and there were no behavioral interview questions.

    Interview Questions

    • There were very few questions, so it was a challenge to present myself as a strong candidate for the position.   Answer Question

    Senior Group Director Regulatory Affairs Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Biomet (Denver, CO) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Took 3 months and it fell apart, but that is a good thing. I found the role myself from their website and worked through a local recruiter (who had contacted me earlier for a much lower level position that I was overqualified for). Recruiter was not "tied into" the organization for executive level positions, so he had to set things up with HR, which took over a month. HR finally called me for a "screening" after 2 months. HR woman was very rude, sped though every question, and conducted the screening like it was for an entry level role. The phone call lasted no longer than 10 minutes. I found out a day later from the recruiter that they "passed" on me. Funny thing is that I have more experience in the field than the VP RA. I also found out that a newly hired employee with one 510K under his belt was recently promoted to Director. It was obvious to me that this organization pays very low-and recruits the desperate and under skilled so that the top level can be secure in their role. I Highly suspect the Sr. DIR RA role was "pre-selected" (i.e. a friend got the job). I found Biomet the whole process to be very unprofessional and full of under-talented entitled staff. Be advised. I would never work for this firm. I expect FDA issues are coming their way.
