Sales Representative Interview
I applied online. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific in October 2014.
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!

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

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific in September 2009.
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.
- Why have you had so many jobs? 1 Answer
Not much negotiation opportunity.
