    Senior Industrial Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Paul, MN
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Boston Scientific (Saint Paul, MN) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The HR recruiter sent me an email via an online social networking site. The position sounded interesting to me and so I replied. It took a few weeks until I was contacted again but then I was set up for an onsite interview. The interviews consisted of 3 different interview teams of 2 people. The first was very relaxed with a few key questions that the interviewers liked asking. The second team had a set list of questions and kept the interview very standardized. The last team was again relaxed. Everyone was very pleasant and engaging.

    Interview Questions

    • All standard questions, strengths, weakness, difficult choices, asking for example of how I made decisions, prioritize, etc.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary was ok but given that I was moving from a rural area to the city the cost of living made the increase minimal. The salary consisted of a base and bonus. Medical benefits were priced good, even lower than I pay at my current company. Relocation package was offered but not enough to offset the cost of living increase due to city living.

Once this is reviewed he will sit down face to face with you in an informal setting and go over your experiences and company knowledge. The last step is the formal interview with a regional manager and the area VP.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Boston Scientific (Valencia, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The recruiters at Boston Scientific are terrible. In trying to schedule a phone interview, I was stood up four times! Four times for an interview that she scheduled. Finally got her on the phone for the phone screening and a couple of weeks later with the hiring manager. A few weeks after the phone screening I went on-site and interviewed with the manufacturing team - tooling group manager, equipment manager, and process manager, as well as with some of the staff. A month later I was asked to come back for a second interview which lasted about 45minutes. Then ... never head back from them.
