    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Molecular Devices.

    Interview

    Typical, multilevel interview process, phone interview, in person local interview, in person headquarters interview, HR provides job offer & details then awaits your response. Managers were previously FSEs, interview with Engineering department was a nice surprise but that Engineer is no longer with the company. (Read the corporate reviews & see if you can figure out why he left). Corporate focus is on bottom line so be sure to play up the Dollars you can deliver over customers you can satisfy.

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Molecular Devices in September 2011.

    Interview

    Only a phone interview. Person conducting the interview was nice and offered a lot of information about the position. It was a new position that had previously not been filled. I wasn't really right for the position. They sent a letter of rejection in the USPS mail instead of just email. That was nice.
