Had to schedule and complete urine drug test within one week of application submission. Talked with director of operations for this region. Very friendly. Interview process was easy since department had been acquired through joint venture. Basically finding out about our vision of future with new company.

    I applied online – interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America.

    Interview Details

    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

    Technical Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tyler, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tyler, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mesa, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America.

    Interview Details

    My application was submitted first. After about a week, I received a call back for an interview. The interview was scheduled that week and only lasted about 30 minutes. Fortunately, I was told that I was likeable and a preferred hire. But after about two weeks I still had not heard of an additional open position yet.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was not really a question from the employer. The assessment test was a bit intimidating. I had been good with my vocabulary but, I advise anyone to really brush up before attempting the assessment test.   Answer Question

    Test Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America.

    Interview Details

    Hired through Aerotek (hiring agency) for a position at Fresenius Medical Care North America. Was phoned by Aerotek rep and an interview at the Fresenius facility was made for Friday. The interview was at 10am. I waited for 20 minutes as another interviewee was supposedly coming (group interviews are the most common), but he never showed. I was interviewed by 2 managers about my educational background and current job/living situation. I got drilled with 6 or 7 fairly basic academic questions and the main manager was impressed and pretty much said I had the job. I was given an extremely brief tour and then told I'd be contacted soon. I left at 10:35 am. The interview was shorter than the time I had to wait....

    Anyway, Aerotek confirmed I had been offered a position the following Monday. They gave me 5 hours to accept the position and really were pushing the concept of me starting that week. I had already explained I would be having surgery and would not be able to, but they insisted repeatedly (got extremely frustrating actually). Told them I would accept and go to sign the papers on Thursday and begin work the next week. The managers were fine with this. Signed papers the Thursday after my interview and started working Monday (1 week and 3 days after the initial interview).

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty straightforward questions, except for one. I was asked to answer what happens when 2 is divided by 0 in digital communications or on a computer. I answered that it was undefined behavior. NO CLUE if this was acceptable as an answer. I know I got all the other ones correct though.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Was not able to negotiate. Got the lowest of the desired salaries I had requested. Because I'm young and lack experience I mostly expected that from Aerotek/Fresenius.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview at facility with manager. The next day I had a phone interview
    With the regional manager. I was sent an email with a link to an online test.
    The test was ridiculous. It was composed of a personality test, word test and algebra
    questions. The test took me 2 hours to complete. After the test was submitted I received
    another email with a link to complete questions for a background check.
