Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Life Technologies.

Interview Details

Interview process starts with a phone call from Talent Acquisition. That process is very slow--sometimes can take weeks after submission of a resume. Focus is, of course, on getting you to come on board for the least amount of money. Once you pass the TA screen, you are interviewed by a bank of managers and peers. Each person covers a specific area assigned by HR/TA. The managers make the final selection, regardless of the input of peers.

Interview Questions

Example of a question: "Tell me about a time you created a vision where team members felt connected and enthused. How did you develop the vision? How did team members feel connected and enthused?   View Answer
Negotiation Details
The job turned out to require a lot more hours than described. Assume you will be working long hours. Had I known that, I would have declined the salary and the job.
