    Intercompany, Cash and Banking Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Budapest (Hungary)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific (Budapest (Hungary)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    After submitting my application, they replied quite fast, within a week and called me to test my English (actually the person was Polish, not speaking Hungarian at all, but was really very kind, with personal ownership feeling about the applicant, what turned out later) and also my experiences. Don't remember exactly, but I think we discussed a personal interview scedule immediatelly to the next week (it was my preference).
    The personal interview was also a very good experience, the team leader is the person I would trust and work for.
    Finally they called me that based on the latest decision the role won't be opened, but asked me to keep in touch.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific in March 2020.

    Interview

    Lady seemed nice. The phone interview was just basic questions about myself and describing the benefits and pay of the job, nothing unusual. She told me she would like me to do another interview and would let me know when I would be doing it. I sent a follow-up email a week after the phone interview and didn't hear back, so that was a bit disappointing.

    Assistant Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairport, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific (Fairport, NY) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I was contacted by their HR to apply for this position because they had my resume, and they thought that I would be a good fit. The interviewer was not nice at all. She was about to cut my interview in short because I didn't have the experience they were looking for, and she acted like I was wasting her time. I am like I was minding my business your HR contacted me and told me to apply because "I will be a good fit for the position". Worst interview experience to date in my life.

    Assistant Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Penfield, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific (Penfield, NY) in January 2020.

    Interview

    A corporate recruiter was the contact person throughout every step from initial screening, to setting up both sets of interviews, to feedback and final decision.
    First set of on-site interviews was with an HR manager and an Ops manager. Ops wanted me but HR over-ruled so I had to do a 2nd set.
    Ultimately the decision was that even though I have proven leadership experience in various types of logistics, that because it wasn't manufacturing specific, that I wouldn't be able to adapt. This is the same mindset I've learned other manufacturing companies take as well.
