    R&D Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bothell, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FUJIFILM SonoSite (Bothell, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Tour of the (very nice) facility, then seated in a conference room while interviewers visited singly or in pairs for 45-60 min each. Lunch hosted in the on-site cafe. Several of the interviewers were not warm, however, they came off as adversarial, which was off-putting and made me hesitate when considering an offer. The process was also somewhat disorganized, awkward coordination and no formal closure at the day's end. The company could benefit from training its interviewers in interview technique, remembering that the interview is as much about selling the company to the interviewee as it is finding out if the person has the right capabilities and fit.

    Interview Questions

    • Covered a broad list of subjects, to be expected for the position. Some came prepared with a specific list of questions, others appeared to be winging it.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FUJIFILM SonoSite.

    Interview

    HR discussion first via phone, in-person interview with HR rep, Senior Manufacturing Engineer, Procurement Manager, co-workers, VP.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult part of the interview was that the Senior Manufacturing Engineer kept pressing on questions regarding management. Which would be fine, except for that the position was entry level - and I obviously had no management experience. So, I had no idea how to answer the questions "What would do if......How would you handle this......" in regards to metrics reporting, etc. Not sure how he would expect me to answer those.   Answer Question
    • The Procurement Manager asked me how I start my day. He also picked out a phrase on my resume and said "What does that really mean? A phrase like that is a red flag to me". Which, I guess I could be appreciative for the feedback, but it was also slightly rude.   Answer Question
    • The two top senior managers that gave the toughest part of the interviews, I barely ever have interactions with them. So, I'm not sure why I had to interview with them.   Answer Question

    Territory Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FUJIFILM SonoSite (Chicago, IL) in July 2008.

    Interview

    Phone interview with hiring manager, lasted about 20 minutes, critiqued resume and was very interested in your approach to business. Next, Met with VP of Sales 1st face to face, not a particularly charming gentleman very direct, almost to a fault. There was little information about the format of the interview, I believe this was intentionally to evaluate your ability to prepare. Then met hiring manager in a face to face, this was more situational and your approach to moving business forward dealing with selling complexities. Final interview was at home office in Bothell, WA where you interviewed with several people including the VP of Sales again. This time the VP of Sales was more interested in how you would formulate a detail plan of attack for physicians and your ability to learn nuisances of sales mastery.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain Cartoid Intima Medial Thickness as it related to what we do here?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not a lot of negotiating for this position, best advice would be to try to negotiate up to the nearest multiple of 5. They typically will offer 48k, I would negotiate up to 50k or 52k...they believe in a performance based system so base salary is not going to be a flexible item.
