    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Beckman Coulter.

    Interview

    Full day interview with five forty-five minute interviews, lunch with current engineers, and site tours. Mostly focused on resume and personality survey results. Four interviews were with engineers and engineering managers, and a final one was with the HR representative.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of situational questions, largely seemed tailored to results of personality quiz.   Answer Question
