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.

Dialysis RN Interview

Dialysis RN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America in May 2011.

Interview Details – Used a recruiter to set up and negotiate the interview process. This was extremely helpful. I communicated through the recruiter and through email with the company. Met with theManager, Area Manager and area VP. Three separate interviews. This was costly in time and travel. Was a standard interview, not the behavior situational type interview. The interview sessions were pleasant, the interviewers were easy going, professional.

Interview Question – How would you deal with a difficult staff member.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much. They say they use a complicated formula that puts your work experience, area wages, blah, blah, blah, into a computer back East and it gives them the wage they can offer you. I had the head hunter to facilitate the negotiation, I felt they were supportive of my goals, but we did not get the wage I wanted, but it truly might have reflected accurately my skills and experience. However, remember the wage you start out with is the wage you get. If you actually get any cost of living or merit raises, it will be 1-3 percent maximum and that is a big IF.
