    Interview Details

    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.

    Senior Group Director Regulatory Affairs Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Biomet in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Business Manager - Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warsaw, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warsaw, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Biomet in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was from engineering manager and he conducted a phone interview which was relatively brief and to the point. Most of the discussion was based on medical design experience and project management. Phone interview was successful and invited to an onsite interview.
    On site interview started with a pleasant discussion with HR. Most questions had more to do with work ethic, getting-to-know-you type discussions. We briefly discussed money which though a bit unorthodox was welcomed since this opportunity required relocation and money was a very large factor.
    Next was a two-on-one discussion with mid level principles and was again more of a get-to-know-you conversation with overly detailed questions that I'm sure in their minds were clear but lacked important detail for me answer appropriately. I ended up asking of them more questions to find the root of their inquiries.
    Next I was interviewed by the engineering staff that would be "directed" by this new position yet "would not answer to" this individual in this position. (which screamed "all the responsibility without the authority") The interviewers (one in particular) were unprofessional, discourteous and rude which very much set me on the defensive. At several moments I contemplated ending the interview. I did finally have to stop their interrogation and ask them to please introduce themselves and tell me what their responsibilities were to get just a bit more perspective on their needs to better understand their questions i.e. "what would you do if someone asked you to do something and you can't do it?"
    This position, as it was explained to me, was to track this staff's operations, record progression and prioritize efforts and become liaison between this group and the "customer". They (the interviewing engineering staff) wanted someone to deal with the uneducated customer which to them was an irritant though the sole purpose of their responsibilities. It was quickly obvious this newly created position in which I was being considered, was based on the inabilities of the engineering staff to document their own work, communicate professionally with their customers and make recommendations to product changes. In other words, rather than management fix the problem, throw more people and money at it!
    My interview was concluded by meeting with two higher level principles of the company for more casual discussions. This resulted in more confusion since both had different perspectives on the position not to mention two very different philosophies of management. It did not take long to determine this company was living up to their reputation as a casual working environment which translates to very casual solutions to serious management issues. I had made the decision on my way home from the interview this was not the place for a long term employment relationship. Fortunately they came to the same conclusion!

    Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Biomet.

    Interview Details

    The interview was one on one with someone from HR in their mid-late 20's. The interview was very enjoyable and much like a conversation (not a Q&A). Interview lasted roughly 45 minutes, and touched on the professional and the personal. Be sure to get your professional experiences in, or the conversation might take up too much time.
