    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Boston Scientific (Natick, MA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Boston Scientific (Natick, MA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Met them through campus recruiting. They were extremely helpful and friendly. I went to a dinner for interview candidates, followed by a 1:1 interview the next day at my University. This led to a site visit where I spent the day and had 4 interviews. I had a great time and they mainly asked behavioral questions such as "tell me a time when...." and I would describe all sorts of situations and work experiences. Typical type of questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Boston Scientific (Natick, MA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The HR department was very helpful prior to my interviews and during the interview process. Unfortunately I was not offered the position due to postions being frozen and lay offs occuring. The same HR representative who had been so helpful and positive became very cold and unprofessional. I was a bit shocked by this seeing that this was the last contact I had with the company. It did not leave me with a very high opinion of how they operate.

    I was asked to put together a market overview presentation for an area the company was considering over a weekend. I was told this was pretty standard for commercial roles. After spending the entire weekend and receiving very positive feedback on my work I was informed that I did not meet the basic requirements for the job and thus was no longer being considered for the role.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Boston Scientific (Natick, MA) in May 2008.

    Interview

    A senior scientist called me and asked about what I was doing for my undergraduate research in a molecular biology lab. After telling him the gist of the topic, he then asked specific questions to make sure I knew what I was doing instead of blinding following protocols. I remember he made sure I knew how to quantify fluorescence after background was subtracted, these kinds of things. Made sure I knew how to culture cells.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't expecting a cell culture question like what do cells look like when I culture them, mostly because I had no experience with that.   Answer Question
