    Easy, no real interview questions at all I asked majority of questions! I inquired on orientation process and benefits! Manager and company falsely stated hours involved for position as being four 10 hour days! Extremely inaccurate information as most days are at least 12-13 or more on a regular day not including your call days! Call days can mount up to be 20+ hours

    Web Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a standard behavioral interview. I asked was series of, "Tell me about a time when you ..." kind of questions. A good approach is to stick to accomplishments you are proud of. You won't be pressed or challenged.

    The reality is that the company has such a high turnover rate, if you have a pulse you are likely to get an offer ... I am not sure what that says about me, since I accepted the offer. :-\ Well, I needed the paycheck.

    Technical Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tyler, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Company had my CV for 1.5 months. After 5 weeks, I received an e-mail that appointment times would be sent out in the next week. When not receiving one, I contacted the director again, and the appointment was received a couple of days later. On the day of my interview (via phone), 50 minutes before I was to interview, the director sent me an e-mail, saying he didn't think I had enough experience in "what field service techs did in dialysis". I have (11) years in the repair of dialysis-related equipment with the attendant AAS degree in Biomedical Electronics.

    Interview Questions
    • I can see being rejected for not having the management experience (per my CV), as the job mostly entailed compliance with numerous OSHA, AAMI, MEDICARE, codes and standards. It was a Technical Services manager job rolled into a Facilities Operations Manager job (two jobs in one). I was rejected for the part of the job I knew best, which was the function of techs in the field and dialysis equipment repair. The director had not even read my CV (or read it correctly) till an hour before the interview. I could have had the interview, but turned it down as he had already rejected me for the stupidest of reasons.   Answer Question
