    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Varian Medical Systems in July 2014.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview was re-schedule by person twice, and then was earlier than agreed upon time.
    Person kept interrupting while I was attempting to answer questions, would not let me get a word in edge-wise.
    Salary expectations question was way too early in conversation.
    Somewhat of a condescending attitude and arrogant interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to either move to X or Y location?
      Do you know what you actually make right now, because most [military] folks have no idea what they really make.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Varian Medical Systems (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was good. I was flown to a regional office and interviewed by a field service engineer, a district manager and a regional manager. Once hired the HR staff were a pleasure to deal with.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Varian Medical Systems (Des Plaines, IL).

    Interview

    Haphazard at best, the hiring manager was recently promoted to Service Manager from installation. He knew NOTHING about field service in general. Thankfully there was a Senior Field Service Engineer at the interview as well, he pretty much ran the interview, the "manager" was a fly on the wall. Varian is the leading company in the Rad Onc Accelerator field, and they knew it, they treated me as though I were an imposition rather than a perspective emplyee.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty much as expected, they did try an obvious trick question, which was promptly identified and answered.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Awkward, as I was recently separated from the military and was not entirely familiar with the negotiating process.
