    QA/Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (San Jose, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I got a phone call from the technical recruiter discussing my background and asking me have I done technical writing before. Then, he sent my resume to to the hiring manager. I was called to schedule an 1:1 interview. He called me to go over interview process. Before interview, I had to review some of my main areas and the scorecard attached for what I will be evaluated on. It's good to have programming language skills definitely a plus.

    I had an interview with a hiring manager. Actually as a technical writing, I did not expect a hard interview questions, especially Microsoft office(Excel, PPT, Word) for how to use document formats. She advised me to go back home and review documentation. At the end of interview, I decided to not have this position and plus no offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (San Jose, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Received phone call from the recruiter and scheduled an interview with hiring manager 2 weeks later.
    Met with the hiring manager and Sr. business analyst first round. Very structured interview in which questions were prepared beforehand and ranked your responses in front of you.
    Second round met with Production/Manufacture Managers and Engineers. This second round was very unorganized, the interviewers did not have many hard/difficult questions it seemed like they were forced to give this interview.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    One phone interview: Thirty minutes, very business-like, purely about factual knowledge and previous experience.
    One in-house interview: 4+ hour interview with 5 different people, one at a time for ~45 min each. Final person was director level for 1.5 hours. Interviewers were Senior Engineer level and above. Some factual questions, but mostly personality and experience questions. It was important to them to find an employee that would fit with company culture. Interview was relaxed and not stressful. Conversation with director was about career goals and company culture.

    The company moved very quickly from the phone interview forward. An offer letter was sent within two days of the in person interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Several technical questions about statistics. Meaning and significance of mean, median, mode, standard deviation, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiated a signing bonus. The company was immovable on salary, but a signing bonus was settled on due to another competing offer.
