    Product Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Valencia, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Valencia, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Boston Scientific in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took about 2 months from the schedule of the 1st phone interview to the offer letter. I had a phone interview with the recruiter and hiring manager, basically went over the job description and asked pretty direct questions about my experience for the job in which I applied for. 3 weeks later I was invited to do face to face interviews with 5 people from the team. They were all given 30 minutes for one on one time with me. I enjoyed this part because you get to meet the team and get a feel of what your getting yourself into. Overall the team was welcoming and intelligent. I had a brief excel test that one of the analyst made. I felt good about the interviews, unfortunately the director of the department wanted to meet with me as well since he was traveling, we couldn't meet for another 3 weeks. I think the process is normally faster.

    Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Boston Scientific.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is very long and the recruiter did not seem to know the interviewing steps or the process well. You interview with many people and they make changes to the interview times with no regard to the interviewee. The recruiter never seems to be available or answers calls in a timely matter.

    Interview Questions
    • Not difficult but personal. It seems they try to find out if you will be a type of person who does not have outside responsibilities to insure you will work long days. The questions I found odd were more on the personal side like what your hobbies are and family life.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    There does not seem to be a life/work balance.

    Manufacturing Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Boston Scientific.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview: Thirty minutes, very business-like, purely about factual knowledge and previous experience.
    One in-house interview: 4+ hour interview with 5 different people, one at a time for ~45 min each. Final person was director level for 1.5 hours. Interviewers were Senior Engineer level and above. Some factual questions, but mostly personality and experience questions. It was important to them to find an employee that would fit with company culture. Interview was relaxed and not stressful. Conversation with director was about career goals and company culture.

    The company moved very quickly from the phone interview forward. An offer letter was sent within two days of the in person interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Several technical questions about statistics. Meaning and significance of mean, median, mode, standard deviation, etc.   Answer Question

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Natick, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Natick, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Boston Scientific in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    BSC actively recruited me. Interview process was pretty laid back until the end when it was time to negotiate start date. First interview was screening with HR, then had phone call with hiring manager, then trip to Natick. I was leaving from a competitor and there was an issue with comp owed to me from my former employer. I was constantly reminded that there was a raise in pay, and that I should be happy joining such a great company for the right reasons. They also reminded me there were layoffs at my current company. I didn't budge and stalled two months. When they realized I hadn't been laid off and I wouldn't leave unless they sweetened the pot, they caved. HR was very pushy, asked some questions that were borderline inappropriate. Seemed like there was a lot of unnecessary red tape around title, comp, etc.
