    I worked at Alere


    The staff here is friendly and knowledgeable. Coworkers are easy to get along with. Seniors are ready to teach and advise as needed.


    The department is small. If you are looking for growth within the department, it may take some time. But there is a lot to learn.

    Senior Project Manager, R&D Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


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


    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.
