    Field Applications Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at DiscoveRx in September 2014.

    Interview

    At first the interview process was good. I applied in mid-late summer 2014. I was really excited about the position and think it was a good match for my skills. I don't remember the order of interviews, but I met in person with the person who would be my manager and met with a sales person. The manager wanted me to give a group presentation (webex) to other members of the company and he actively helped me with the content and editing. We met several times and I took that help very positively. The Webex happened around Labor day and went okay. About 8 people attended, but I wasn't fully aware of everyone on their end. It was requested I fly to Newark Airport to meet CFO/COO, and I think that interview went well (mid September). I had another two phone interviews with more people in October. In early November, a few other people came to my city (including my would-be manager) and I had lunch with them. Still no offer or indication that the interview process would be over. Then the would-be manager wanted to set up a time to talk. I thought it was the offer, but he never called (I did try to email/call him, but there was no response). He attempted to set up another phone call, and also didn't call at the agreed time. It was roughly Thanksgiving time I didn't bother to contact him back. Months later I ran in to would-be manager in an elevator in my work building. He looked uncomfortable to see me and said the position had been canceled. Early on, they were very proud to not have HR because it increased overhead, but the flip side of that is they are disorganized and waste everyone's time.
