    Interview Details

    Initially, an internal recruiter will contact you for a phone screen. You'll first do a one on one with the regional manager, followed up by an interview with the local field team. If you pass the first three stages, you'll do a day long ride along.

    Interactive Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Boston Scientific in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview process for setting up was typical of a large company, detailed and painstaking application process to submit resume, went through phone interview and then 2 in person interviews. Would have had to fly to Boston for a full day of interviews if the process would have gone any further, but it ended for me after the first in person interview. Seemed to have a very limited understanding of how to fit mobile into their strategy and our opinions didn't mesh - that was where the process ended for me.
