Biomedical Systems Engineer Interview

Biomedical Systems Engineer
Burlington, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Boston Scientific.

Interview Details – Arrived at Burlington location, reception was pretty disorganized, but eventually they found out who I was supposed to interview with. Interview with one person only for about an hour, mostly just conversationally going through my resume. Also a semi-technical question thrown in, related to something on my resume.

Interactive Strategist Interview

Interactive Strategist
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Wanted to have examples of mobile possibilities in marketing for physicians (specifically SMS)   Answer Question
