    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Edwards Lifesciences (Irvine, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews first with the recruiter and then with the hiring manager. Nothing difficult if you have the skills for the position you applied, followed by 4 sections of one on one interviews and 1 Panel interview. The only downside is that they don't communicate their desicion so you have to guess how you did.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Edwards Lifesciences (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Talent Acquisition interviewed me over the phone, I thought it went well. She had me answer 3 questions regarding my experience in relation to the job requirement, As it is, that is exactly what I do and more, so the job fit me like a T. I thought everything was going well. So she said she will submit me to the hiring manager. And if I could do her one more favor and refer a colleague or friend for a different position, Before I knew it, my colleague is being considered for the exact same position. And that's fine but this recruiter I wish would've come out straight and told me. Be professional!!!
