    Lab Technician Interview

    Interview Details

    Such cheaters. They called me twice and interviewed me and both times told me that I got the job but never called me to finalize. They check current references and then never send you an offer letter.

    They play games and waste your time. Do not spend time to interview with these people.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing like that,seems to me they are try to pass time.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was forced because they told me they will match the salary but didn't. HR told me they will call me back and they didn't.

    Study Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Toxikon.

    Interview Details

    Emailed resume after responding to a Craigslist ad. Was emailed by HR the next day. Had to take an online personality test and was asked for an in person interview the next week. Met with all of the department heads and CEO. Was not asked many questions, was just asked if I have objections working with animals, as if they were trying to prevent a PETA operative from working there. Was given an offer within a week. No room for negotiations. Their eagerness should have been a warning sign, but I was desperate.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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

    Study Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 Questions
    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
