    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific (Waltham, MA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interviews were fairly standard behavioral questions, and I had a total of 7 phone calls as a part of the process:
    1. HR screen
    2. Informal chat with the hiring manager
    3. Interviews with panel of 4 employees including hiring manager, marketing manager, customer (internal), and a current PM.
    4. Final interview with Sr. HR person

    While I did enjoy talking with pretty much everyone, it wasn't made clear by the recruiter (my person of contact) that the final interview with HR was another interview, and she also messed up the scheduling of one of the calls, which meant I got a call for an interview a day early and felt unprepared. In the final call with HR, she said she wanted to be transparent that it was down to me and one other candidate, but I should hear something by the end of the week. I never heard from them again even after following up. It just seems a bit disrespectful of my time to never even send a quick email telling me they opted for the internal candidate.

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard from the recruiter 3 weeks later. A few days after the phone screening, I was told that the hiring manager wanted to continue with an in person interview. I confirmed my availability, but it took another week for me to hear from the recruiter on interview details. Details weren’t confirmed until 2 days before the actual interview. I interviewed with multiple people and it was mostly behavioral. I was asked some technical questions. After the interview, I didn’t get the impression that I had a chance at an offer. I never received a “No offer” email either. After my experience, I’m glad they didn’t extend an offer because I wouldn’t want to work for a company like this.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific.

    Interview

    One phone screening with HR, then 1:1 on-campus interview, and finally they fly you to headquarters for a day of interviews and case study. Most questions were behavioral based (tell me about a time when...) and the case study was meant to see how you work in a group.
