    Senior Clinical Trials Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Maple Grove, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Maple Grove, MN) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I met with the two Program Managers and the Director of the PI Clinical Group, each for 30 minutes. The process was quick and focused on my previous experience. They all discussed the working environment, elaborating on fostering a team-like approach. They also discussed changes in upper management that have made the entire group flexible and more hands-on, which allows for greater visibility of BSCI to our research sites. All three of the people I interviewed with stressed that respect and collaboration were among the most important things they were looking for in candidates, in addition to experience. I found the entire experience very motivating and very excited at the potential to work within the group.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to describe my experience in managing clinical trials, how to handle problem situations with colleagues and to elaborate on attributes that were most important to me when looking for a position e.g. teammates, personalities, working under stress and prioritizing.   1 Answer

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Maple Grove, MN) in March 2011.

    Interview

    There was 4 phases of the interview.
    The introduction
    Technical interview
    Management Interview
    Tour and Character Interview

    The Intro was just to meet and greet. The technical interview was to see what I knew. The opposite happened and I recognized the developers lacked a certain talent I wanted to work with. After that I talked with management for a while followed up by a plant tour and a chit chat. All in all the experience was pleasant and easy.
    I was sent a gift basket afterwards.

No one talked to me and no feedback was ever attempted.

Interviewers were all adamant about how much they like the benefits package, plus remote is an option.
