    Service Technician I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Lengthy process but well organized and comfortable during all phases. I was an external candidate in competition with internal candidates but I believe a sincere effort was made to treat my application with equal weight.

    It is a multi week selection process which is a bit trying however I have only positive feelings for the staff and company even after I was not selected.

    Senior Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ventana Medical.

    Interview Details

    The first recruiter who phone screened me didn't know science and so the questions she asked didn't make sense. For instance, she asked me if I had experience with reagents. Any chemist has experience with reagents, it's a general science term, but she was using it in a specific product development way that I didn't understand. I blew that interview and didn't get called back. The best way to get in the door is to network in and get an employee referral.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview process has changed since I interviewed, so instead of describing my interview, let me just say that you should read up on the 'right' answers to behavioral interview questions and also read up on the company. People who can't answer why they should be hired, don't have specific answers to behavioral questions, or don't know anything about the company or the position are almost always not hired.   Answer Question

    Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ventana Medical in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Ventana Medical Systems, being one of the best employer in tissue diagnostics industry is very selective of their employees and although it is not extremely difficult, it is not easy either to land an offer from them especially in Research and Development.

    For scientist position the interview process typically involves multiple interviews. In addition to the hiring manager, higher management including Director of the department and even VP Research may be involved in the process. Additionally the fellow scientists, senior scientists and engineers interview and the decision to hire the candidate is collective of the entire group.

    Typically when a candidate is vetted for Scientist position, the communication skills, the depth of knowledge and confidence are important aspects that they look for. But whether the candidate fits the culture of the team and the company is very high on the assessment list.
