I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Terumo BCT in November 2012.
Interview Details – I have to say it can be a lengthy process. The team I interviewed with was very level-headed and bright although; upper management is probably very "tight" despite the company practically owning a monopoly in this sector. Profits go back to Japan where (likely) the American worker isn't held in the highest regard or to the highest standard. Interestingly, I don't think I would have landed an interview had I NOT been currently employed. Likely the company (as many do) favours siphoning off "employed" candidates rather than giving a chance to those who are unemployed. I was asked repeatedly (by every interviewer) whether or not I was currently working. This seems to be an important point I picked up on from past experiences with technical job recruiting. In conclusion, it seems like a great place to work with lots of like-minded individuals, however; unless you have a highly specialized skill, don’t expect much in the way of a salary bump (especially if you're already doing well in your current occupation). Working for Terumo is probably more about giving one a place to be passionate about one's "craft", however everything has its price.
Interview Question – Some brain teaser looking for analytical thought process rather than "correct" answers. All fair questions. You should be prepared to honestly express passion for your craft (especially medical related software) - afterall the end result of your work affects other people's lives. Answer Question
