Field Service Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Varian Medical Systems in July 2014.

Interview Details

Initial phone interview was re-schedule by person twice, and then was earlier than agreed upon time.
Person kept interrupting while I was attempting to answer questions, would not let me get a word in edge-wise.
Salary expectations question was way too early in conversation.
Somewhat of a condescending attitude and arrogant interviewer.

Interview Questions
  • Are you willing to either move to X or Y location?
    Do you know what you actually make right now, because most [military] folks have no idea what they really make.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was good. I was flown to a regional office and interviewed by a field service engineer, a district manager and a regional manager. Once hired the HR staff were a pleasure to deal with.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Varian Medical Systems.

    Interview Details

    Haphazard at best, the hiring manager was recently promoted to Service Manager from installation. He knew NOTHING about field service in general. Thankfully there was a Senior Field Service Engineer at the interview as well, he pretty much ran the interview, the "manager" was a fly on the wall. Varian is the leading company in the Rad Onc Accelerator field, and they knew it, they treated me as though I were an imposition rather than a perspective emplyee.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty much as expected, they did try an obvious trick question, which was promptly identified and answered.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Awkward, as I was recently separated from the military and was not entirely familiar with the negotiating process.
