    Lab Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toxikon in June 2017.

    Interview

    First, the interviewee was a half hour late to the interview. Then, without my knowledge decided to bring in three or four more people separately to talk to me about an entry level lab assistant position. The HR department is the worst I've seen, didn't return emails or calls even before the interview.

    Lab Technician Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Such cheaters. They called me twice and interviewed me and both times told me that I got the job but never called me to finalize. They check current references and then never send you an offer letter.

    They play games and waste your time. Do not spend time to interview with these people.

    Reasons for Declining

    I was forced because they told me they will match the salary but didn't. HR told me they will call me back and they didn't.

    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Toxikon (Bedford, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I had a 30 minute phone interview with Manager and HR...very basic questions. Took an online assessment test a few days later and then received an email asking me to fly out to their Bedford, MA office. The in person interview seemed very disorganized, but met with a number of senior management staff...took about 3 hours. Two people actually said that they received my CV 5 minutes before they came in to talk to me, so they did not have a chance to review it. At the end it was like....."OK, I'm the last person and we will be in touch." During my interview, it was mentioned that my salary requirements were much higher than they pay...they knew what it was before I even flew out to MA. For me, it was a complete waste of time! I still have not received my full travel reimbursement. They do not reimburse you for meals when you travel...seems like a cheap company!

    Study Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bedford, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Toxikon (Bedford, MA).

    Interview

    Emailed resume after responding to a Craigslist ad. Was emailed by HR the next day. Had to take an online personality test and was asked for an in person interview the next week. Met with all of the department heads and CEO. Was not asked many questions, was just asked if I have objections working with animals, as if they were trying to prevent a PETA operative from working there. Was given an offer within a week. No room for negotiations. Their eagerness should have been a warning sign, but I was desperate.

    Study Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bedford, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Toxikon (Bedford, MA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Had interview with 7-8 people (one after the other), 3 VPS, and the rest various managers. 30-45 minutes each, mostly they asked questions specific to skills listed in the resume (depth of knowledge about certain specialties). HR had more generic questions (strengths, weaknesses, what you'll do in 5 yrs), but the hiring decision comes from higher up, so don't sweat much what you say to HR.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation in salary or benefits (take it or leave it). My advice: take it for now, look for a new job in a year.

    Director of Sales and Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toxikon.

    Interview

    First a phone call followed by an email requesting an on site interview in Bedford. I was then told to take an online "personality test" for one hour. After taking this the HR person cancelled the interview literally the day before the on site interview with no explanation but one line. When asked reason this was provided: "At this time we do not plan on rescheduling your interview." No other explanation.

    Sounds a bit fishy and unprofessional to me. Perhaps an unstable place to work.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Toxikon (Lexington, MA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied on line and was offered an interview the day after I applied. They pushed the interview out two weeks because they were on a holiday. In the mean time I filled out a 6 page form, contacted three references, and did 2 hours of online testing that they told me to do before coming to the interview. They sent a one line email the morning of cancelling on me because they had hired a candidate....they hired a candidate while they were on "vacation" . It was a total waste of time.
