    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than a year)


    How logic has provided me a great work environment, incredibly smart and passionate people to work with, The resources I need to succeed, and the opportunity to blaze my own trail.

    I find the executive leadership team to be incredibly passionate, engaging, and inspiring.


    While there has been a complete change in all leadership positions I find that some very tenured employees are naysayers which can slow productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the unique culture and environment!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Hologic.


    Screening calls through Talent Acquisition, then phone calls with various regional managers, including the hiring manager. Flown to location to do a live interview. Was told I would hear back if there were further questions or concerns, and after several weeks and a couple of follow up emails, I heard NOTHING. One of those companies that leaves you hanging if you aren't moving on in the process. I was also made to feel like I was being lead down a path, during the interview, to trick me. Was not an above board, honest, interview process in general.
