    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Alere in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview that ensured that I had the experience in project management in a regulated industry that I claimed. That was followed by a 3 hour on-site interview with 3 different departments HR, Manufacturing and R&D. This interview was mostly behavioral. I attended a second on-site interview, 2 1/2 hours, that dug deeper into the specifics of what I had done in previous projects. I was also interviewed by several members of the actual team I would possibly lead. My final interview was with the global president of the division I would work for.

    Interview Questions

    • Provide three words/traits that you would use to describe yourself. Now provide an example of how each contributed to a negative project experience AND a positive project experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated on salary only; my counter was accepted.
