    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
    No Offer
    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.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sanofi Genzyme.

    Interview

    I had been submitted to the position through a recruiting agency about two months prior to any contact. I initially had a phone screen and was then quickly invited on-site. For the on-site, I had a half day interview with lunch included. I was given the wrong address and had to go to another building thanks to the help of a nice security guard. At the correct building, I met with a total of eight people from the group including director-level people. Midway into the interview, I could tell that this was a group that I did not want to work with although the position was a great fit for my background. I eventually received an offer for the position but immediately declined it.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Simple - just a in person 45 min interview, mostly fit, with the head of the team. But HR is a nightmare. Applied in November and did not get paperwork till April. Contacting GZ employees from an outside email address is near impossible with most of the upper management. Not very transparent about the hiring process either. Had to follow up multiple times to get an answer.
