Engineering Interview

Engineering

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America in April 2011.

Interview Details – Applied through the company career website. A few weeks later I was contacted for a phone interview. The interview involved speaking with two members of the engineering team about my experience and behavioral questions.

I was later contacted for an interview at the company. The interview consisted meetings with various members of the engineering department. Each interview was 1-on-1, and they discussed their specific departments and how they work with the overall product. There were also general engineering questions on topics such as logic gates, op-amps, and transistors. I'd also recommend researching the company's products and dialysis treatment in general.

Overall the interview was positive. The engineering team was friendly and the company culture seemed very team oriented and open to collaboration.
