    Research Assistant, Analytical Development Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Momenta Pharmaceuticals (Cambridge, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    After a phone interview, there was an in office interview where I met with seven different team members, both scientists and human resources, for thirty minutes each. Overall, meeting with the team members was good because you are able to see who you would be working with if hired. The company seemed to really value their employees which was evident in the interviewing process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Momenta Pharmaceuticals (Cambridge, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The process consisted of a phone screen, phone interview and a face to face interview. Far too much time passed between each stage as the hiring manager was traveling. .When the phone interview with the hiring manager was scheduled, he initially no showed (no called). I was given the equivalent of an "ooops, I forgot to sync my phone with MS Outlook. A few more days went by before we could finally make contact by phone. He asked to see me in person which for some reason took way too much effort on their part to schedule. The face to face happened on the Friday before Thanksgiving and I was told during my interview that there would be a delay getting feedback because the hiring manager was going on vacation for the holiday and the following week, he would be out of office dealing with a family member's surgery. When I reached out to the recruiter to ask if I could still expect to hear feedback this week, she replied, "ooops, sorry about the delay in response but we decided to move forward with another candidate". so, they made this decision a week earlier and rather than be professional and respectful, of my time, energy and efforts, they string me along an entire week thinking that they had not yet decided. why would I want to work for a company who shows me so little respect as a job candidate?
