    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Danaher.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 10 people in 3 different states over the span of 4 weeks, some multiple times. Completed nine hours of psychological testing. It was an exhausting process and indicative of the amount of effort required when hired.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Danaher.

    Interview

    Got the interview by applying through my university's career services website. Had an in person interview and Skype interview on the same day. Each were one on one interviews. They asked typical behavioral questions. They also asked about how you got interested in the field and what attracted you to the company and position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Danaher in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was not currently in the area, so I had a phone interview. My (soon-to-be) boss was very friendly and did not ask tricky questions. She seemed to already be pretty confident in me before the call was over. She did have me speak to one other site leader on a separate phone call at a later time. That was more of a formality to make sure we got along fine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Danaher (Wood Dale, IL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was pleasant. It began with an initial call with HR, then I met with the Executive Assistant who was vacating the role, as well as the manager whom the role supports. General questions were asked relating to job history and experience. Mostly we discussed the culture and company operations, and how it relates to their various business units.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Danaher (Washington, DC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview itself wasn't particularly hard but the interviewer is a tough cookie (but polite). Really come prepared with some stories that highlight excellence in your field and be confident in your answers - this was a very formal interview.

    Interview

    Beware they are searching for this position under two other company names, Chemtreat and Trojan Technologies. It is the same position with different salaries. Also, they do not respond to job applications which is a poor reflection on all of these companies as a whole.

    Recruiter Interview - Then Hiring Manager Phone call - Then Face to Face with Hiring Manager
    Went through process and found out only offer 2 weeks vacation. Ive got 20 years experience, Looked like a great fit till then. So disappointed had to turn down.
    The company really needs to read more on Work/Life balance or they wont be able to keep good employees.

    Field Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Danaher in September 2018.

    Interview

    Was contacted for a phone interview after applying and scheduled an interview time. Waited an hour during the scheduled time, did not get a call at all and when I contacted the recruiter she told me that there was a problem with the "system generated communication" not going through to me. Very unprofessional for a company and recruiter of this caliber to schedule a phone interview and not call at the scheduled time or get back at all.
