    Regulatory Affairs Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at St. Jude Medical (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Spoke with the Hiring Manager over the phone. I received an email 2 weeks later for an in person interview with the hiring manager, team, and 2 other higher ups. I was told that I will get a response in 2 weeks, I didn't receive a response until 5 weeks later. And this was a generic electronic email saying that they moved on with other candidates. I clearly saw that they put the post back on the site before I received this email. They shouldn't string people along like this.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at St. Jude Medical (Saint Paul, MN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by their recruiter for a brief phone screening. She said she would pass my information on to the hiring manager. The next week she followed up with me early in the week and said it was still under review and they should be in contact by the end of the week. They sent an email with optional interview times and asked that I send that back, and by Friday I had scheduled the interview for the following Monday. The interview was set up as three thirty minute interviews with three levels of employees moving up the rank and file.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at St. Jude Medical (Little Canada, MN).

    Interview

    I applied and was contacted by the recruiter. Interview went well and was invited for 2nd interview which i believe was fine as well. After second interview i was told that i would be contacted by my recruiter..... waited a week and emailed recruiter... she didnt respond. Waited another few days and called her. She picked up and said that she hadnt heard anything yet, but was going to contact me by the end of the day via email. It has been 3 days and i emailed her, but no response. Is this the way you treat people? I would've appreciated it if i was told that i wasnt fit for the position but not hearing from them at all is unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at St. Jude Medical (Minnetonka, MN) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Overall it was a great experience. I felt it was relaxed enough that both myself and the employer were able to get an accurate idea of what working together would be like. In all it took a very long time due to internal review and changes made to the position. However, they were great about keeping me informed along the way. This was the best interview and hiring process I have experienced so far! Very professional and organized.

    External Scientist I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Paul, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at St. Jude Medical (Saint Paul, MN) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Through my staffing agency I was brought to meet the manager of the lab before a formal interview took place. This was the first stage, and my chance to ask questions about the job and to give the manager more information about me. He asked me general questions about my resume and answered my questions. Work is very team based, so the manager was focused on vetting my personality first to see if I'd be a good fit.

    Next I met the manager again at the lab, and sat down to a pretty informal panel interview of 3 other scientists. They asked me questions about my resume and what I liked to do on weekends and what other kind of work experience I had. I could tell they wanted more details of the kind of work I could do and what I was capable of. I answered everything honestly with as much detail as I could, and was very friendly and amicable. I also was able to ask them questions too about themselves and their work experience. They also were focused on vetting my personality because I would be working directly with them and they need a team player.

    Afterwards I got a tour of the lab and got to meet some other people working there. Overall it was one of the easiest and calmest interview experiences I've ever had.

    I got an offer soon after. I had to pass a criminal background check and a urine drug test set by my staffing company before I was allowed to start work.
