Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Life Technologies in January 2011.

Interview

Very long, involving many people. Seemed like management could not make up its mind within a reasonable time frame, and seemed to decide on a final interview at the last minute. Interview process dragged on for 3 months. An additional presentation was required late in the process, almost as a CYA because someone would not/could not make a decision.

Interview Questions

  • How can you make a real difference in the shortest time? Give examples of how you've done this in your previous jobs.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Offer was pretty much take it or leave it. Advice-push hard for better terms, but don't be surprised if the answer is that the HR rules don't allow for flexibility. One area is to negotiate for a sign-on bonus: this is a one-off payment that doesn't become part of base salary and is easier to get approved.
