    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Zoll Data Systems (Broomfield, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Difficult to really peg what they were looking for, first I received an email stating that they had chosen to go another way and so I didn't think anything of it an continued in my job search, then a week later I received an email saying they wanted an initial phone interview, which confused me because they had already emailed me telling me that they weren't interested in me, but I went ahead with the phone interview. After speaking with the HR person he scheduled an in person interview. I went in and interviewed with a really nice lady, we interviewed for a little over an hour and it was quite enjoyable. She had stated that they were in the process of interviewing several people and that I would most likely hear back from them in a few weeks. The next day I received an email from the HR person saying that they were going another way, so again, it was a bit confusing. If they were to call me back and make an offer I most likely would not accept, the reason being is that the environment, although in a fairly new building, is quite sterile and lacking personality. People seemed to just be wondering around. I saw the same person 4 times in the hallway going in and going out of the interview, each time he had a different food item in his hands and he didn't seem like he was doing much of anything other than foraging. That and the lack of knowing whether they are coming or going given the several conflicting emails I have received, tells me that they don't really seem to have any specific goals or rules to follow. The dress code must be nearly non-existent as I saw some people in what I would call business casual, nice top and slacks, and then many of them were in t-shirts and wrinkled corduroy or jeans so it was hard to gauge really what their mission was, what they represented or even what kind of leadership they had. I even saw a couple of ladies walking around with infants so it was weird to say the least. I would say that if you did have a specific direction in life you just might fit in with this group of people, but if you are goal oriented and have a strong understanding of and respect for structure, you would be wise to steer clear of this establishment. It just seemed like a very disorganized process.

    Interview Questions

      They were standard interviewing questions that anyone would ask but I must say I have never been in an interview before where someone read a question to me off of a piece of paper.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Zoll Data Systems (Broomfield, CO).

    Interview

    Interviewed with HR, direct report, and the VP of Operations all in one day. They flew me into Denver and had the entire day scheduled along with providing lunch. The process started with the recruiter and HR manager, then the direct reporting supervisor came in along with the HR folks. After lunch I met with the VP of Operations for a 1 on 1 interview. They shuttled me back to the airport the same day due to me having to be back to my current job at the time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Zoll Data Systems.

    Interview

    Phone interview- very long, they will dig deep into your resume so know it well, then if you pass that, you go and meet with a lot of associates for at least 4 hours. They interview a lot of people, so then you wait and wait and wait until you hear from anyone. You have to have patience for this place!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Zoll Data Systems (Broomfield, CO) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Interview process was thorough, but the interviewers seemed to have different agenda. I started with the hiring manager via a phone screen. Then moved on to an in-person interview. Again sat with the hiring manager, then proceeded to a panel interview. Each of the panel interviewers was asked to prepare a question, which some did and others didn't. As we moved through the panel, they were looking for MS specific commands or detailed specifics on how to solve problem X or Y, rather than looking for how the candidate would solve problems.
