    Field Service Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Biosystems (Newark, NJ) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Phone interview first with management and HR. Then dinner with HR and Management for formal interview (good dinner and bottle of wine!), Questions were technical, experience base, critical thinking, and customer service oriented questions. A backgroud check and a drug test to follow. From first communication to first day on job was about 3-4 weeks. On boarding experience in the first month was weak. Felt like I was just floating around but then I settled in to it quit quickly.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Some room for negotiation. Start high...you can always go down but very difficult to go back up.
