    Compensation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lawrence, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at NxStage (Lawrence, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was approached by one of their recruiters and after multiple phone conversations, I agreed to come onsite for an interview. The process was long and tedious, but about the same length as other interviews I've had in New England. I met with 3 people over the course of 4 hours. Everyone seemed excited to meet me and all voiced the opinion that I was a perfect fit for the role. They asked me to come back and meet the head of the department the following week. I came back for another round of long, tedious interviews, meeting the head of the department, and then meeting with everyone I'd already interviewed with previously plus someone who'd been out the week before. All were positive again. The head of the department told me he wanted me for the position and that he was just waiting for one of the recruiters to draw everything up. They told me I would hear from them the next day or the next week at the latest. I never heard from them again-- not even a follow-up explaining that I didn't get the job. Very misleading and unprofessional.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at NxStage (Lawrence, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied at NxStage and was contacted by a Recruiter for a phone screen. A few days later, I was scheduled for an onsite interview. The facility was very nice, and I met with four individuals. I spent over 2 hours onsite and felt positive about the interview, especially after getting a tour. I followed up with the Recruiter, after the interview and she said she would give me an update within a week or two. After two weeks, I followed up again, but she did not respond. I tried again after a month, but she she continued to ignore my emails. I find this to be incredibly unprofessional as any update would have been appreciated. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Clearly, the HR dept shows no interest in creating a positive candidate experience. The line managers were welcoming and seemed to be a great team, but the lack of response has left a bad taste in my mouth.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NxStage (Lawrence, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The on boarding process here at NxStage was informative and smooth. During the interview process I was able to meet with many of my future co workers to obtain a full understanding of what my role would be within the company and how I would be adding to the NxStage team. The HR team was wonderful in helping the process to go as quickly as possible, while ensuring that this would be the right career choice for me. Overall - I was extremely happy with the hiring/interview process and am very happy to be a part of the NxStage team!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NxStage (Lawrence, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, received email to set up phone interview. Never heard back from the HR Rep, followed up with an email and she didn't respond. I would say this is a bit unprofessional. If you are going to go through the effort of interviewing someone, at least be professional enough to let them know that you are not interested. Let them know that you are going to go with another candidate or let them know that the base salary is too high, allow for possible negotiation.

    Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NxStage.

    Interview

    The process was a good one to weed through the candidates, since they wanted to make sure the guy is competent, the basic and most important requirement. Interviewers are mostly engineers and they appear to be competent with what they are doing, which is a good sign if you want to work for a successful company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NxStage in December 2014.

    Interview

    got a schedule to interview with 4 people, 2 did not show up. Tried to get feedback with HR, no reply.
    Finally recruiter told me they rejected me. No respect to candidates. What's the point? I am employed and took half a day for the interview, costing me >$100 plus gas. Future candidates should avoid this company. Look at their quarterly report .They are losing money all the time
