“In July 2013, I became the first intern for the Medical Systems Group. I helped Product Managers in Core Gastroenterology, EndoTherapy, Cleaning and Disinfection, and Respiratory Marketing with critical projects. After the program, I applied for a Respiratory position and gained employment with Olympus two months before graduation. As a current Associate Product Manager now in Respiratory Marketing, Olympus has allowed me to flourish and make a difference in the lives of my co-workers, customers, and patients who suffer from lung disease.”

~ Ariel Merkt, Associate Product Manager, Core Respiratory EndoTherapy Devices


"Becoming an Olympus employee was one of the greatest opportunities to come my way after a 20-year career with a large pharmaceutical company. Upon starting, I was very pleased to learn about the great healthcare benefits and special wellness programs offered by Olympus. In addition, I noted the “atmosphere” and how much the Company cares for its employees. It is wonderful to find a company with such dedication to creating a positive and balanced environment for its employees."

~ Helen E. Yanovitch, Graphic Designer III - Marcom & Advertising


"In addition to Olympus' active involvement in the community and its emphasis on building products which enhance people's lives every day, I personally enjoy working at Olympus for the various opportunities available. Olympus is more than supportive and encourages employees to be involved with initiatives about which they are passionate, including helping to develop a corporate diversity and inclusion initiative."

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas.


    After first talking to the recruiter there was a phone interview with the regional manager. It was a fairly casual conversation about the role and the expectations. The only feedback I got was that he preferred the other candidates so I did not make it to the in person interview.
