    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Greatbatch (Clarence, NY).

    After the initial application there was a waiting period of a few weeks before being contacted to set up a phone interview with the prospective supervisor. After the interview was completed, HR made the offer call within a few days, followed by an email offer. Once signed and returned with the approval for a background check, a drug test was scheduled and a start date was arranged.

    Systems Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Greatbatch (Clarence, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The process was simple, had to meet with 5 different people, and had a small tour around the company. However, this company is HUGE on presentation. In fact, they were so bent about it that it was difficult to determine if they cared about what you knew as opposed to how you looked. You have to dress extremely sharp in order for them to at least consider you. On my interview, it was extremely hot outside, and I didn't have blazer to wear since I sweat too easily. However, that wasn't to their standards (which is what I heard from my recruiter). One of them kept looking at my outfit during the interview, it seemed odd that he kept laughing to himself (I found it incredibly rude - not sure if it was because of my wardrobe or because of my weight). I wore black pants, a tie, and traditional white buttoned shirt. Another thing to mention is that, although the building was beautiful, the atmosphere seemed icy and impersonal. The interviewees gave an icy glare when talking to them. I asked them questions like: "how much of your code is legacy" and each interviewee gave completely different answers not even in the same ballpark. Then they completely misunderstood my goals and directives at I wanted to do at the company, which gave me red alerts that there would be communication problems working there. Afterwards I just lost interest.

    Service Delivery Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Greatbatch (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was called by a teenage recruiter who didn't know the difference between this role and a buttered roll. I then waited over a month for a follow up, just to be told they were passing on me even though I had already contacted the head of the department and scheduled a separate interview with him. He then sent me a questionnaire, which I answered brilliantly however he still chose to pass based on 2 insignificant answers that could easily be corrected, to which his response was "I trust the recruiter's" instincts. Interesting that a Senior Manager would trust the instincts of a recruiter who has been recruiting for 6 months and whose last job was scooping ice cream at Andersons
