    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thoratec (Burlington, MA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    They work with an agency to find people, the interviews were very well run. Interviewers were up-front with what they were looking for and their expectations. The process took an extended amount of time, mostly because it fell around summer vacations and scheduling time with everyone was difficult. Feedback was quick and genuine.
