    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Applied Biological Materials (Burnaby, BC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with 3 other candidates. This was at first intimidating, but at the same time it also relieved a bit of pressure because attention wasn't always on you, and also you could really compare and/or listen to each other's answers and make sure you stand out from the other 2. Each person had to present a 10min powerpoint (template provided before the interview) and was followed by questions from a panel of 3 interviewers. Afterwards we got a 5min tour of some facilities.

    Interview

    I started by volunteering at this place so the interview was easier I think. They didn't ask tough questions or any technical or practical questions (since I think they understand I don't have previous co-op or lab work experience)

    Research Scientist Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Biological Materials (Richmond, BC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked to prepare two presentations The first one followed a template that they sent me, which basically ticks all the boxes for typical, clichee interview questions, such as biggest strength, biggest weakness. I didn't mind that too much, since all the questions were laid out in advance. The second presentation was a scientific presentation based on past work. My recommendation for the second presentation would be to focus on methods and technologies. More recently, abm has added a practical test as well, which asks the candidate to pitch an RD idea and explain why they think it would make a good product or service. In order to answer this question, it is of paramount importance to study the abm product portfolio and understand what is currently being offered to know where the gaps are.
