    Marketing Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Ok. Fairly easy questions, but be prepared to back up your insights with real-world examples. They'll probe. Also be sure to have references handy. And don't expect feedback from hr or the hiring manager soon afterwards. It's a big company, which can mean the hiring process typically takes several weeks or more.

    ELDP Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was about 45 minutes; behavioral questions were asked and there was one challenging question that involved an unexpected way of thinking about a presented real-world situation. Typical behavioral questions include: Tell about a time where you encountered a difficult group member and explain how you sought to resolve that conflict. Additional questions were tailored to the program specifically; questions were asked about location rotations as well as the time needed for separate projects completed during the rotation.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was about where I saw myself in 20 years. I really had not thought that far ahead and ended up pausing for a few minutes before I could muster up the honest answer which is that I had no plan at the moment but would contemplate that more closely upon graduation.   Answer Question

    Very organized, a few phone calls and emails to set up the interview. It was a two people interviewing and they took notes while you were talking. It was more conversational rather than interrogative. Asked about technical skills, leadership experience, and time commitment.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't have any really difficult questions. The ones required thinking were the "what would you do" in a leadership situation.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Siemens in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied for another Biochemist position, but my resume was intercepted. Received a call from the supervisor about a week later and had a short phone interview. Sixty minute in person interview the following day with two supervisors present. Also received tour of the laboratory (a bit messy, not entirely impressive). Ten days later, received an invitation to interview with potential co-workers and director of department, but declined due to distance (facility is approx. 60mi from my residence). Interviewers were very friendly and straightforward.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. So tell me about yourself, strengths/weaknesses, tell me about a time you had to collaborate with coworkers, how would you handle a task you've never done before, what are your plans for the future/ where do you see yourself in 10 years, do you mind working late into evenings if necessary, have you ever been given an unexpected deadline and how did you deal with it, can you explain how immunoassays work?   Answer Question

    Senior Scientist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    This is the most unprofessional and rude interview I have ever had. The whole process was pretty typical, HR phone screening, HM phone screening and then onsite. Several things made me really disappointed at Siemens diagnostic, once my dream company.
    During the onsite interview, someone indirectly asked my sexual orientation; Someone would laugh quite a few times whenever I did not give the right answer and told me right away that question was so simple. More outrageously, he would paraphrase my question even if I gave the right answer. I had another friend who was also interviewed at the same group. The same guy told her her research was useless. It took three month to get my reimbursement and they made a mistake and it took another month to reimburse me with the right amount. Their site is like a big factory and has a very untasty cafe.

    Other interviewers were good, I have to say. Later I know, this rude guy had a friend who was also being interviewed at the same time.
