    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas.

    Interview

    I have never been apart of such a terrible interview process, regional manager was late and dug into only my first part of my resume. You could tell they have never done a interview together before, told me the people who use percentages on their resume lie... first time I have ever heard that. I had my numbers there to back it up, felt like they were just wasting my time. Even if I was offered I wouldn't take the position, sad such a great company.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas (Center Valley, PA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was held with HR person over the phone. She advised I would be moving to the next round and to expect an email with next steps. After not hearing anything for a week and a half, I followed up with her and received no response. Afterwards I checked the application portal to find out they passed on my application. While they may have had valid reasons for passing on the application, the lack of professionalism/non-responsiveness of the HR staff, especially after being told you are moving to the next/final round of interviews reflects poorly on this organization and frankly is a good sign to me that I would not want to work here. They don't treat potential candidates with much respect and that's a big red flag in my mind.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas (Marlborough, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    HR interview...boiler plate. Interviewer asked me to describe steps to a product launch when she clearly had no idea of the product/industry specific necessities involved in a launch. After answering the question, she asked it again. Very frustrating that her lack of knowledge prevented me from moving forward in the process

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas (Boston, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had a phone screening and they asked technical questions and pushed for salary history.
    There was no room to explain how my experience matched their requirements since the recruiter didn't know anything about the position, so the answers were limited.
    They never answered follow up emails.

    Fellows Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southborough, MA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas (Southborough, MA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    30 minute phone interview with corporate HR rep. She was very nice but did not know much about the program or anything site specific. Mostly just asked about content of resume. Moved on to 45 minute in person interview with three people from different functions (supposed to interview with 4, one of which went through the program but she cancelled at the last second). Went on to final in person interview with the president of the company and one of the functional directors followed by a 15 minute presentation to all interviewers. Everybody was very kind, but communication was very poor. For example, they never told me who I would be interviewing with, even when explicitly asked (helps for interview prep), and they sent contradicting information about the presentation, one source saying it was 5 minutes, the other source saying it was 15 minutes. I asked them three times what the actual length was and received no response, so I had to prepare two presentations.

    Interview

    The process was on average longer than most other medical device companies. Two separate trips to the home office were required due to the entire interview team not being available during initial visit. However, two face to face rounds or visits are not uncommon for these types of positions
