Quality Engineer Interview

Quality Engineer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at STERIS.

Interview Details – I had sent several applications to Steris that did not generate interviews. Later I applied with a referral from a current employee and worked through the rest of the process with an on site recruiter.

First an initial phone screen with the recruiter to go over my previous experience. Second was an on site interview with the Quality Manager and VP of Quality separately lasting about 2 hours total. About a week later I was brought back in to meet with HR which lasted about 2 hours. Not long after that I was called with an offer.

The whole process was very enjoyable, moved fairly quickly and was focused on making sure there was a good cultural fit.

Interview Question – Describe a situation where you were asked to do something illegal or unethical by an employer or colleague and describe how you handled the situation.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was given a very fair offer and great benefits and decided not to negotiate heavily.

Regulatory Affairs Interview

Regulatory Affairs

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at STERIS.

Interview Details – I interviewed at Steris 6 times for the same position. I wasn't really asked many questions and I was never contacted to tell me that they hired someone else. I found out by calling and following up myself. I was not asked any in depth question. I felt as if they alreadu knew who they would hire, but they had to go through the motions.
The interview was a half day and I met with some wonderful people.

Field Service Representative Interview

Field Service Representative
San Diego, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at STERIS in November 2012.

Interview Details – Got a phone call from HR, then a district manager setup a face to face meeting at a close to home restaurant. Asked basic background questions. Asked me to explain a typical day in field service. Questioned me on some basic electro/mechanical concepts. He could tell I have 18 + years experience. Did not need to take an online IQ/Skills test.

Interview Question – None for me.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – District Manager called me with a verbal offer and said it was well above mid payrange level for this position so it's not negotiable. I accepted considering the economy and other factors.
