    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas.

    Interview

    The interview process was comfortable. The questions were more about your recent work not all the "how did you handle a situation when" kind of questions. The managers were very interested in hearing my background and experience instead of putting me in the hot seat.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas in June 2009.

    Interview

    The initial interview was with an internal HR rep. It was a behavioral interview. The second interview was a one:one interview with the direct report. It was less of an interview and more getting to know the person and what the job entails. A third interview was scheduled, but cancelled at the last minute - due to a change in the regional manager's schedule. We could never coordinate schedules to reschedule during a appropriate time. There seemed to be a communication breakdown.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain how your current position is relevant to the position you are applying for.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas.

    Interview

    Was contacted by Olympus and invited to come in for an interview a few days later. Was interviewed individually and by a few different groups. Overall the interview process seemed pretty well organized and coordinated but I got a distinct feeling that the role involved having very little management support and having one foot on a banana peel and the other out the door. Was never contacted again after interview so I assumed they found someone else. .
