    Lab Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lakewood, CO
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Terumo BCT (Lakewood, CO) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The position was posted for 1 week. I applied, and received a call to schedule a phone interview with a HR person. That interview lasted 1.5 hours, and included basic HR questions, as well as job-specific questions. All questions were reasonable and expected. "What's your biggest struggle & what are you doing to overcome it?" "Tell me a time you had conflict at work & how you handled it." etc. I didn't hear from the company for almost 2 weeks and tracked down the email address of the HR person I spoke to (note to people interviewing: ask the HR person for contact information in case you want to call or email them) and sent him a thank you letter (which I should have done immediately) for the interview saying that I looked forward to hearing back and was very interested in the position. He called me and scheduled an in-person interview. When that date conflicted with a volunteer commitment that I had (going on my son's field trip as a chaperone), he was very understanding and rescheduled the interview.

    The in-person interview included 6 1-on-1 interviews, as well as a lunch interview with the people who would report to me. It lasted over 5 hours. (I should have brought some water with me because I ended up getting a tiny cup from them & was so thirsty the whole time.) Each interviewer was really great. Very personable.

    I absolutely was thoroughly impressed with this company and their employees. Most of the people have been working there for a long time (8-17 years, from the people I met) and truly love it. Their company is doing great things for people (developing cellular therapies that have the potential to change the face of medicine as we know it), and that is very motivating. They ensured me that they have a heavy focus on work-life balance, which is VERY important to me. I was truly impressed with their company culture and their vision for the future of apheresis technologies.

    They like leaders who are strong and not micro-managers. :)

    Interview Questions

    • Their most difficult question had more to do with me than them... They asked me why I was looking to change jobs, as I have been working in my current position for 12 years. That was a hard one since I am truly happy where I am now.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Ultimately, 49% of me wanted that job, wanted to work with those people, and wanted to be part of their team. It really had NOTHING to do with their company, and everything to do with me.

    One criticism: When you are offered a mid-to-high level job, being offered an entry level benefit package is discouraging. They only offered me 2 weeks of time off a year. I earn 6 weeks where I work now. That is very hard to give up, and negotiating 4 extra weeks is very unlikely.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Terumo BCT (Lakewood, CO) in October 2011.

    Interview

    They are hiring pretty much anybody now in the clean room. They are paying 12.50 base as of April instead of the 15.64. Made it clear we have been overvalued for the 7 years we've been making the 15.64 without a raise. Interviewing usually consists of a phone interview, and then a personal interview. Hiring within is a little more difficult. The truth is they decide who they're going to hire in a certain position before they ever post a job.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Terumo BCT (Lakewood, CO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    All the interviewer had my resume in front of her, she did not ask one question about it. Instead she told me about her own education/work experience. The other individual interviews went well but I was not told what my position would be working on or how the structure of the organization would be.

    • I do not remember a difficult question. Instead I felt I had to come up with questions for them.   Answer Question

    Finance Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Terumo BCT (Lakewood, CO) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Phone interview with HR scheduled two weeks later. Walked through my background and then questions about handling certain situations and behavioral questions (weaknesses, type of work environment). Standard. The call ended without proceeding because HR required salary information from prior positions and wouldn't proceed without it. If you feel your prior salary information is confidential then this company won't be for you. They should save us all time by writing in their job descriptions that prior salary information is required to be considered.
