    Administrative Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at BASF Corporation in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a telephone interview for an Administrative position back in February. Followed up with recruiter every few weeks for 2 months - each time being told they were still finishing phone screens. Gave up.

    In May, applied for similar position. Received email in a few days requesting a "digital" interview. This is similar to a Skype interview, except you are solely speaking into a computer Web Cam while questions pop up on the screen. You have 3 minutes or so after seeing the question. Very bizarre.

    One way video interview is the first interview you get. Do not know what step is after that. There is a deadline to complete this interview but its a fairly short deadline.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I interviewed back in April and the entire process took 9 days. Many of the questions were behavioral/situational and other than that just a normal conversation. It helps to dress nicely and arrive 15 minutes early. There was another lady who wrote down what you said to the interviewer for future decisions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 months - interviewed at BASF Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Filled out on-line questionaire. Made sure to include keywords that matched posting. Pretty straight forward in-person, competncy-based interview. Met with management, colleagues, and HR. Each interviewer asked questions about different competncies. No presentation required.

    Interview Questions
    • HR had much broader questions that required several responses after narrowing the focus. Nothing difficult, just the way the questions were presented and the HR person interviewing seemed to be a bit mechanical.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The salary was reasonable, so no real need to negotiate to hard. No flexibility with vacation, but has since adjusted somewhat so no real issue for new hires.
