    Quality Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Interview

    I was contacted through a recruiter. Basic Questions. Nothing tricky or thought provoking. I am pretty sure that they already had an internal candidate to fill the position before I even arrived; which is annoying because I wasted my time. People were nice and polite.

    Manufacturing Scientist I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EMD Millipore (Jaffrey, NH).

    Interview

    It was only a few minutes after the agreed upon time, and the interviewer was very polite and professional. I was virtually being offered the job then, but was told that I'd get a call, which came across as more of a formality than anything, and I felt that my chances were pretty good. I did not receive one, however, and I was surprised to find that my emails went unanswered for long periods of time, and with very cryptic responses. I think the person in charge of hiring is simply overworked, as she made casually mentioned the fact that she is responsible for scores of individuals, but as someone seeking gainful employment, it's annoying to not be told whether or not I will hired in a relatively short amount of time.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no real surprise questions that one wouldn't expect from a fairly standard job interview.   Answer Question
