Question 1 of 25
How do you feel about being on call?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
The interviewer would like to see what your availability is and if it will fit the needs of their organization. Being on-call as a biomedical technician may be necessary, depending on the size of your team. If a piece of equipment fails in the middle of the night, a doctor does not care what time it is. The patients' health is at stake.

Assure the interviewer that you, and your family, will be okay with you leaving to work in the middle of the night from time to time. Also, take this question as an opportunity to ask how often you would be expected to be on call. Be careful not to rule out the position entirely before finding out all of the details.

Question 2 of 25
Working on million dollar equipment can be stressful. Are you prepared to handle this?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
As a biomedical technician, you work on expensive equipment every day. When asked this question don't show defeat but show that you are confident in your skills! Talk about how it motivates you to troubleshoot and fix the item correctly. Perhaps the satisfaction that you achieve from knowing you saved millions of dollars is what keeps you going on the most stressful of days. Let the interviewer know that the price of the item doesn't detour you from performing your job.

Question 3 of 25
How do you explain complicated concepts to those who may not understand?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
The interviewer wants to know that you are capable of explaining complex ideas without being condescending to your co-workers or talking over their heads. Give the interviewer an example of how you break down information to make it more easily digestible for the average person.

Think of a presentation about a complex topic, as a proposal to solve a challenging problem. The solution may seem obvious to you, but everyone else in the room is scratching their heads trying to figure out what you're talking about. When you can define key terms and phrases to make them more relevant to your audience, you have skill! Not everyone can do this.

Prepare an example that demonstrates your communication skills and your ability to convey complex information in easy to understand terms.

Question 4 of 25
What piece of equipment do you find most challenging to repair?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
Turn this challenge into a positive! Sometimes we view challenging tasks as things we are not good at or an area where we lack training. If you think of a particular piece of equipment that you find challenging to repair because you haven't had a lot of experience with it, go ahead and let the interviewer know. Perhaps it was a challenging repair because it took you longer than expected to fix. Maybe you had to rely on a manual to aid you in a fix. Admitting that something was a challenge because you are unfamiliar with it is not a bad thing. The interviewer would rather hear that you face a challenge head-on versus seeing you come across as a know-it-all.

Question 5 of 25
With advancements in technology, are you worried that remote diagnostics will replace your job?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
The interviewer would like to know your thoughts regarding the advancements or remote and robotic diagnostics. As a biomedical technician, you need to show your value and that you aren't afraid that remote diagnostic will replace your job.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
