    Staff Scientist II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme (Framingham, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    got the onsite interview very quickly because the director there just started a new group. The interview took half day(face to face discussion with four people in the group and one hour talk). no difficult questions because my research talk was very different from their background. However, I did not get the offer. The feedback was that I need to improve my communication skills.

    Quality QA Department Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme (Framingham, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted by recruiter - 2 weeks later was called in for interview to be with 3 different people. Arrived 15 mins early, and while in waiting area 2 other interviewees showed up. An interviewer showed up and brought us in, putting each of us in a different office. Met with each supervisor for 30 mins each.
    I was told at one point by the department head "you have the most experience and qualifications, but I like to hire people I bond with". At this point I knew the interview was over as she was a 30 something female, and the 2 other interviewees were 30 something females.
    My point is I was rejected as I went in with the wrong impression, thinking they were looking for the best person for the job, in reality they were looking for the person who would be more socially engaged.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme (Framingham, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was through Consultant company, so directly went for an in-person interview. This is a newly established role where it requires a lot of documentation and reviewing. So, the interview is mostly based on your skills in the resume and a few behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle stress? how do you deal with a co-worker to get the work done on time? how do you approach your superior for a query? who's your super hero and why? describe a few non-work related skills that will be helpful for this job ?   Answer Question

    It was very nerve racking and employees did not make me feel comfortable. I had a group interview and then met with everyone 1:1. Most interviewers were very serious and not welcoming. They frequently stopped to correct me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme.

    Interview

    I was lead to a conference room. Met with HR person, then a telephone conference with someone in France then person that worked in that department and then the head of that department. There was going to be another interview via telephone with another person a couple of days later. One thing I noticed is the department head while interviewing me was sweating profusely and was constantly fidgeting in his seat. Also he tended to babble and said he hated dealing with the people in France because he had a hard time understanding them. Also they said over and over they are very fussy on who they hire

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    There was great coordination. I was happy that the first interview was with a lot of folks (6) ie no lengthy screen. It did make a long day. Some in person and some phone. Most difficult aspect was different 'personalities' of various interviewers. For example things would settle casually with one, and the next would be more formal and buttoned up. So just be yourself
