    Veterinarian Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Toxikon (Bedford, MA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty straightforward. Interviewed with several people and each one took time to explain the role and how it would interface with their group. Everyone was professional and pleasant. No one asked "gotcha" questions. It all related to qualifications for the position.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, MA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toxikon (Bedford, MA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and was asked to take an online assessment. The online assessment was 4 parts - an SAT like portion, 2 nearly identical personality tests (to check for consistency, I suppose), and a final personality assessment. Came in to office to interview on two separate occasions and met with some very nice people. During one visit, I met with the CEO, who seemed a bit distracted at times and was mostly dismissive of my responses. After a bit of a delay with no communication, I was offered a different (i.e. more senior) role at a salary level commensurate with the position I applied for. Thanks but no thanks!

    Lab Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    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.

    Surgical Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toxikon in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through the website and several weeks later received an invitiation to interview on-site. They asked that I complete a "behavioral" screening test online beforehand, which took about an hour, and complete some paperwork.
    During the interview it became clear another available position would be a better fit for me so I was geared toward that job (general research associate) instead. I was asked to sit in an empty conference room and wait for various people to stop by and talk to me turn by turn. Five or six people from the company each sat down with me one-on-one for fifteen minutes and told me about their role and about the firm. The last person I saw was the HR manager who was the most informative and helpful, and very straightforward about company culture, work schedule expectation etc. Overall the process took almost 2 hours which was more than I had planned for. I received an offer 10 days later asking me to start asap. I was underqualified for the advertised position but they seemed to be mass-hiring.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Toxikon (Bedford, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewers were nice but the process was unorganized. Did not even get to finish the interview because the VP got called into the conference. Overall, the people seems nice.

    Business Development Interview

    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!

    Interview

    It's a long process interviewed by many people. It took about 2 hours for the process to finish. I had to wait for few minutes initially before I had to face the interviewers in the conference room. Asked questions regarding the job, company, introduced themselves, talked about their role in the company and how the company can help me grow my career.
