Brainlab Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Support Specialist Position Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Brainlab.
Interview Details – Two people gave the interview and they mainly wanted to get a sense of who you are. They asked mainly general questions, but did ask whether I had some experience with lab equipment such as an oscilloscope and a multimeter. Nothing too specific or hard. Best advice is to appear to be confident and to have leadership qualities and to be a fast learner.

Am Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Brainlab in January 2010.
Interview Details – Overall the process has been very similar to most interviews in the Medical Industry they can sometimes drag on for months depending on Managements current schedule and availability... Unlike most interviews this was not the typical question and answer session... It was all about what you had been able to uncover and research over the few days prior to the meeting which will give you a head up on the competition. Obviously there has to be a similar experience in the managing of territorries and overall management of the sales cycle which you should be able to explain at a moments notice... Although the decision is said to be made by the RM - This process has many hand at play from other Representatives to Engineering and C-Management.
