    Senior Software Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Arden Hills, MN).

    Interview

    They canceled at last minute, only way I found this out is because I called to confirm interview particulars. This seems very unprofessional and rude so I can only wonder how bad it would be to work with these people. I recommend you avoid this place. I never heard back from them on a reschedule.

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Maple Grove, MN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Process was lax from the start. Contacted for a phone screen that was supposed to happen at 1:00 but they called at 1:45. Was invited for 3-45 minute in person interviews. First 2 went great and went well over their time with each giving me contact info and liking my background. Third interview with the actual hiring manager went to pot. She instantly said my background was nowhere near what she wanted and had no idea how I got in there. She then continued to ask generic questions while rolling her eyes. Lasted only 20 minutes and at the end she said "I suppose I should walk you out now". I have a friend that is a manager at the Arden Hills location that says this must be a Maple Grove thing but I would never want to work at that location

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Maple Grove, MN) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I sat down with my future manager and his manager. We got to talking about the position I applied for and they got to know me and my work history and schooling and they changed everything for me. Basically made up a position for me. It was a very relaxed, business casual interview with no lulls in the conversation and no awkward moments. Also, there weren't any questions out of the ordinary. They just wanted to get to know me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Arden Hills, MN).

    Interview

    Very technical and very nice people. The interviews were strong technically and had a strong understanding of the company. They really sold the benefit to the patients.

    They start out with a phone screen and them fly you in for an in person where they pick up the tab for a room, board, etc. They have an impressive cups and always take the time out to explain some of the processes.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The application process is entirely online. If your resume happens to catch the eye of one of their "Talent Acquisition Specialists" they will contact you directly via email. If not, you will simply receive an automated response email saying they're moving forward with other candidates. The phone screenings are what you would expect (see below). Then they will pass on their notes to the actual department to which you applied and the manager in charge will review applicants and they will make the decision to move forward to an onsite interview or to let you go. This will take weeks, so be patient. Overall the process is fair and the hardest part is getting your resume noticed at HR. Once you get past that, they will definitely hire you if you are a good fit AND you are the best candidate (8+ weeks wait period).

    Product Development Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very efficient, and thorough. Rather then dealing with scheduling 2nd and 3rd interviews everything was dealt with in one 3.5 hour morning. It followed a well balanced schedule, and no surprises. I was able to go in, be myself, and not be drilled on "what if's", or name a time... The interview process is part of the reason why they have the great culture that they do here.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Saint Paul, MN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    My interview took place in a conference room with two of the managers, one of whom became my direct supervisor. I really liked the interview, the process seemed relaxed. I didn't like that the wage was completely non-negotiable, and I was only given 5 hours to decide, even though I asked for a day or two to think about the decision.
