TLDP - Technology Leadership Development Program Interview
The process took 2+ months – interviewed at BD in April 2011.
First-round interview was local and consisted of a 45-minute panel interview with four people. Questions were split between those that were behavioral in nature and focused on past leadership experience, business acumen, conflict resolution, and personal goals. Additional focus was on technical research background & experience.
Second-round interview was at company HQ in Franklin Lakes and consisted of seven 30-to-45-minute one-on-one interviews with VP-level members of the R&D organization across multiple businesses. Second-round interview served as final 'selection' round.
Third-round interview was a 'fit' interview at the initial rotation site, and was only offered to candidates who were likely to receive offers.

Technology Leadership Development Program (TLDP) InterviewApplication Details
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at BD in March 2011.Interview Details
1st off BD is a great company and very innovative. Everyone I have spoken to has had nothing but good things to say; everything was positive from Employee development, career mentoring, to fulfilling projects and generous salary.
This is why I wanted to work there so much.
I applied in Dec. 2010 and it took until March to get to the selection process.
Mostly the interview consisted of a panel like conversation about my scientific background, successes and challenges. They mostly want to know how you think, how much you want to have the opportunity, and general knowledge for placement purposes.
Generally, STAR or personality questions. The big question is "why do you want to work at BD?" They want good people and people who think BD is a great place. Drop names and mention specific conversations with current or previous employees. Talk to the recruiter and develop a good relationship before the interview also!
Very selective program and selection is based on the divisions that need specific skills. I didn't take it too personally when I didn't get a call back, but I was disappointed.
It would be nice if they knew the skills they wanted and only interviewed the ones with those skills, but I think I learned a lot from the process and still want to work at BD in the future.No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
