    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I found out the opening from Indeed and applied via Thermo Fisher's website. It took about 1 month before a company contract recruiter contacted me. I did 2 phone screening with her. The first was very brief because I got caught up in work and she only had time to give me an introduction and asked me if I was still interested in the position. I said yes I was interested in the position and we scheduled the second phone screening. Only at the end of the second phone screening she brought up that the management team prefer SAP background though on the job description both SAP and Oracle are preferred. I only have Oracle experience and I never heard from her again.
