    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    Easy phone and onsite interviews. Got the offer. Low ball. I tried to have an open conversation and negotiate very carefully. They withdrew the offer because I tried to negotiate. I'm not the only one. Happened to my friends, too. Be extremely careful if you really need a job from them.
