It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at Boston Scientific?

Any advice on striking the right note?

Interview Questions you should ask BSCI (Read text first):

I worked for BSCI for just over a year in Maple Grove, and I spent time traveling to Natick (HeadQuarters). Be very cautious about these positions. I took on a Senior Supply Chain Analyst role in their technology group, and I was supposed to be involved with SAP BW, Enterprise Performance Management and much more. In the end I took several steps backwards and the job was really an inventory analyst position.

As far as software / IT goes at BSCI, their IT group has very little respect from Natick. Maple Grove is littered with Access and Excel development, and they have zero access to the enterprise SAP system. Working at Maple Grove means you will be working with "Cob-Job" systems, and poor leadership. Do yourself a favor and validate this assessment by asking the following questions when interviewing:

1). Do you have access to the SAP system in Natick? Meaning...do any IT people in Maple Grove develop solutions on the enterprise tools? The answer is no.

2). Is the Maple Grove facility at odds with the rest of the company? Answer: YES. Very few sites globally have respect for Maple Grove. Working with other locations is next to impossible.

3). Will I be working on documenting homegrown systems or enterprise systems? Answer: HomeGrown! Maple grove is simply a support facility with respect to IT. They put in phones, support the local network, and support their local forecasting tool.

All in all: I know the medical device companies are attractive right now, but do yourself a favor and stay away. This place is a giant head-ache! Luckily I was recruited out of there by another former employee. I know I sound very negative, but I would hate to see others suffer from the same issues.

Finally, don't be impressed with the fact that Maple Grove has the best selling product of the company. It means nothing as the organization is trying to bring control back to the East Coast.

I've been working at Boston Scientific in Miami, Florida for over a years. I work as a machine operator. The work is very clean and easy. All you have to do is go to their staffing agency and work for them for about a year. The pay is good at around $10 per hour with or without a high school diploma. This company will literally hire anybody (blind, cripple, or crazy). Just don't have a criminal record. After serveral months you'll become permanate.

You'll start your permanate employment with 3 weeks vaction, 6 sick days, 2 personal days, 1 week of plant shutdown every six months (July/December)only if you want to be off from work during those days. And the opportunity to be late for work up to 15 times in a 12 month period. Plus you'll get great medical, dental, and vision benefits along with all that other stuff at a low rate. A single person pays about $35.00 every two weeks. A person can easily make that up with all that overtime they offer. I average about 60 hours a week.

Many people that work at this Boston Scientific locationed in Miami attends school. That's great because they offer $8,000 per year tuition reinburstment.

All a person have to do is go to work on time everyday for the first 3 months with there staffing agency.
