Research Associate Interview

Research Associate
Bedford, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Toxikon in February 2010.

Interview Details – I had to go in there and sit through 4 people one by one. They were all really nice but it was just a really long process. Questions were all pretty normal except for the obvious animal welfare questions that are a little touchy.

Scientific Position Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Bedford, MA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Toxikon.

Interview Details – The interview process was long winded and with 4 people who just kept repeating themselves. I didn't have much of an opportunity to say much and they did most of the talking. They were clearly not experienced in HR

Interview Question – Nothing really, they just asked standard stuff about resume.   Answer Question

Study Director Interview

Study Director
Bedford, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Toxikon in August 2010.

Interview Details – Had interview with 7-8 people (one after the other), 3 VPS, and the rest various managers. 30-45 minutes each, mostly they asked questions specific to skills listed in the resume (depth of knowledge about certain specialties). HR had more generic questions (strengths, weaknesses, what you'll do in 5 yrs), but the hiring decision comes from higher up, so don't sweat much what you say to HR.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation in salary or benefits (take it or leave it). My advice: take it for now, look for a new job in a year.
