    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Thermo Fisher Scientific (Mississauga, ON) in July-2018.

    Interview

    They were very friendly. Asking how the commute was and seemed generally interested in my wellbeing. They asked mostly behavioural questions and my ability with the Microsoft Suite.
    They seemed really eager to hear what my questions were for them so having a few prepared is a good idea.
