Application

I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific in October 2014.

Interview

very long process, but everyone was extremely helpful. It took about 6 months to actually get an offer letter and at least 10 interviews. Well worth the wait though. You talk to about 10-15 different people throughout the entire process and dont exactly know who is who. so always do your best no matter who you are talking to!

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific in March 2010.

    Interview

    Very professional, expedited process. All expense paid trip to HQ, multiple person schedule, all questions professional and two way discussions.

    They were not forthcoming about deficiencies in the product line, which was detrimental later.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a difficult situation and how you overcame it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Had an existing position, so was able to negotiate pay rate to some extent, and covered commissions lost for leaving other job.

    If I did it again, I wouldn't take the job without a 3 yr contract minimum to protect against upper management.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific in September 2009.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume on line. Was surprised to actually get a call from the in-house recruiter (there is only one) Initial phone interview with recruiter. One hour phone interview with hiring manager. Face-to-face interview with hiring manager (one hour) and finally a phone interview with manager's VP. Closed him hard and he said the job was mine - he was just a final check-off in the process.
