    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Valencia, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Valencia, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviews included a HR phone screen, a phone conversation with the hiring manager, and all-day in-person interviews at the company's offices in Valencia with the marketing team. One thing that made the interview process difficult was that it was only communicated to me towards the end of the process that I was interviewing for a slightly different position / product team than what I had originally applied to.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of questions around leadership and project management capabilities, as well as understanding of marketing & product management frameworks any how the candidate has applied them in past experiences.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Boston Scientific in March 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring interview was very simple and smooth for me. The recruiter came to my school and he interviewed me for like 15 minutes. It was more like a conversation than an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me why I chose my school and my major.
      what I like about my major and what I am planning on doing after graduation in the spring.
      the interviewer was basically looking to see my critical thinking skills.

    Embedded Software Engineering Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Boston Scientific.

    Interview

    The process took more than a month. After phone interview with hiring manager and other engineers I was assigned to take Brainbench online test for embedded systems and I was told that it is a standard way of the process. I took that test, which was moderate on difficulty. A few weeks later I was invited for onsite interview. The interview was friendly. A week later I was called and offered for this position, however the salary range was far below of my expectations. Finally I have declined this offer, because I had gotten a better offer. I would advise to hiring managers informing potential candidates about salary range for this position prior to inviting for onsite interview.

    Interview Questions

    • There were several questions related to problem solving, algorithms, RTOS and embedded programming.   Answer Question

    Quality Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Valencia, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Went through several rounds of interview, first phone interview, then in-person interviews with 4 managers. It was a long process that required two rounds of in-person interview due to a hiring freeze or some restructuring happening at the company. Took way longer than expected. Some managers focused on technical knowledge, some focused on pursuit of certifications, some focused on questions about taking initiative. Pretty thorough in various aspects.

    R&D Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marlborough, MA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Marlborough, MA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The process began with a 30min phone interview with a senior fellow. Then a face to face was scheduled for two weeks later. It was a series of 1 on 1 with Managers, PM, fellow, senior engineers, and peers. There were standard questions about my resume, white space thought experiment, and a product show and tell/design innovation on the fly. Great people and 2-way conversations overall. Although no offer was made due to mismatched skill set/experience, HR was nice enough to call and inform of the reason.
