    Ms Field Applications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Beverly, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Waters (Beverly, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview first, then was invited to on-site to meet people and make a presentation. It took some time to arrange my travel (about three weeks), but they accommodated everything well. I had a dinner/breakfast/lunch with the head of the department, which was very generous. Great facility, friendly people. good impression.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of questions about my skills and resume. One person asked me to teach him something about mass-spectrometer and then fix a problem with ion mobility (this was a simple pre-set "user" mistake). It was interesting, but a little difficult since I haven't worked with this brand of mass-spec for some time.   Answer Question
