    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. The process took about a month. I had an interview with the director of the department on the phone. The phone interview with the director was the worst interview in my career. He sounded like he was outside with a headset; a lot of howling wind noise and bad receptions. I couldn't hear him well over the phone.

    He didn't see my cover letter, resume or online portfolio at all. I spelled out one of the website URLs that I designed but he couldn't get it right over the phone so he had no idea what kind of designs I did. He sounded like he didn't care and he wanted to end the interview as quickly as possible. Although the interview went bad, he said he would have a recruiter to coordinate an in-person interview with me within few days but it never happened.

    Be prepared and organized if you give an interview.

    Senior Administration Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific in January 2017.

    Interview

    I received an invitation for a telephone interview for a senior administration position for the Carlsbad location. Contact from the HR representative was slightly confusing (emailed confirmation then called with information that she was working from home)

    On the day of the interview, the representative was 10 minutes late. The representative did not conduct the interview in a pleasant manner and seemed annoyed with a derogatory tone.

    I was uncomfortable throughout the process and relieved when completed. My previous research on the company stated mostly good reviews and a positive mission statement/culture.

    I see that the position has been re-posted in April. I would not apply again.
