    IT Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marlborough, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Marlborough, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with recruiter followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager. Next round was in person with 6 people either on site or via video conference. Followed up multiple times with recruiter who kept saying they will get back to me by the end of the week. I stopped following up after a few weeks. Very unprofessional to not close the loop.

    R&D Engineer II Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Marlborough, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of three 30 minute interviews with Senior R&D Engineers within the division I'd be working. One interviewer brought in a product and told me to identify which mechanical parameters were important. One just wanted to know about my background, things listed on my resume. One was more interested in my personality, how I prioritized things and how I worked in teams

    Interview

    Quick interview (~30 mins) with PM off site, after about 2 weeks asked to come in for more interviews on site. Had 6 interviews at the site visit with managers and more senior engineers. Offer extended about 2 weeks later. Every person I interviewed with cared a lot about the work they do and the company.

    Human Resources Communications Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Marlborough, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter followed by a phone screen with the hiring manager, then in person interview with 4 people. At the in-person interview, I asked what hiring manager would consider success in this position and I got a lecture about how Boston Scientific expects people to hard work and doesn't post superfluous positions. With more than 20 years of experience, I was surprised by that answer. Not surprisingly, I have not heard back from them. That was at least 2 months ago.

    Senior Medical Writer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied for this position online. About 5 days later, the (awesome) HR representative contacted me by email to schedule a 30 minute phone screen, which happened a few days later. After that, they scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager, which went really well. During the chat with the hiring manager, I was also asked to perform a short medical writing "test" to check out my skills and to return it within 2 weeks. I returned it in just a few days and was then scheduled for an in-person interview on the Marlborough campus with several different people, including the VP of Global Clinical Trials. I had a great time at the interview, but I tend to like interviews where we get down and dirty - basically, they had a lot of questions about my experience, previous projects, how I would handle certain work situations (both scientific situations and interpersonal ones), and what I was looking for in a position. The people I spoke to really knew their stuff, and as a result, there was not much chance to "fake" your way into this position and YOU really needed to know YOUR stuff. They called the next day with the offer, and I accepted. Background check/drug test steps took about 2 weeks, so don't panic if you don't hear anything about them within 2-3 days - it's normal for it to take some time.

    Senior Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marlborough, MA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Marlborough, MA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was somewhat long but not unreasonable. 2 phone screens and 3 on site discussions. Questions were mostly focused on the person and not your professional history though they certainly had a set of questions (from a standard form) that each person needed to ask.

    Ultimately, it seemed like a great company on paper. However, the financial benefits just weren't competitive. They tried to make up for it with a possible bonus and pushing the fringe benefits of the job but you still need to feed the family and not go back 2 job levels in salary.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was particularly unexpected except that there were no technical questions. The interview was a lot of "How would you deal with problem X"   Answer Question
