    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SCIEX in March 2019.

    Interview

    Interview process was not the best because they did not take my background into consideration. I would hope a company like this would have done better in reviewing the applicants background before making the decision

    Field Service Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at SCIEX (Saint Paul, MN (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Brief screening with HR then 1 week later 1 hour phone interview with hiring manager (district manager). 5 additional phone interviews with "team" which was extremely unorganized and informal at times. Entire process took over 1 month and they didn't even give a chance to get to know me or my in depth knowledge. Their loss on a great employee.

    It took them forever to process the reimbursement. I interviewed there in March and now it is the end of May, and I haven’t heard anything from them regarding my reimbursement. Very disappointing!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at SCIEX in March 2014.

    Interview

    Took a while starting from phone interviews, personal interview, HR phone interview, computer based personality test, another phone interview - total process took ~6 months but was in between delayed becaused of unexpected circumstances. Probably usually it would have been done in 3-4 months.

    The computer based personality test was a classical psychological thing - relationship towards risks, how do you treat people, etc. The personal as well as the phone interview with the GM's were very informal, the phone interview with HR more a formal one.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really unexpected. Interestingly the interview transformed into some form of coaching discussion for a reason I learned later. Therefore the interview was probably a bit atypical.   Answer Question

    Senior Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redwood City, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SCIEX (Redwood City, CA (US)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Telephone interviews help accelerate the process with the hiring managers and also enable one to meet with hiring managers across diverse functions e.g. engineering, professional services, HR. Personality quiz was illuminating and fun - - you learn more about yourself and how you are perceived. You also hone in on your priorities e.g. career acceleration (manager, promotions etc.) or team colleague (taking on more interesting projects, focused more on product improvement vs. managing others).

    Interviews were in-depth but not exhaustive e.g. great dialogues with hiring managers to learn their priorities and how you could make an immediate impact and what strategies would work well for them. Additionally, you learn their style e.g. F2F, email, phone. You also glean deeper insights into the company culture and if it's aligned with your values.

    The onsite interviews allow you to see how spectacular the office space is, sense the company energy and imagine how you'd fit and witness how others interact.
