    Professional Development Program - Sales and Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at BASF Corporation in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was introduced to the company at a career fair at my University. Following a conversation with a company representative, I was scheduled for an on-campus interview the next day. This interview was conducted separately by two representatives, about 30 minutes a piece. Most of the questions were behavioral. I was invited to a final round of interviews in Durham, NC about a week later. There were many college seniors interviewing for the same position, and there was a great opportunity to mingle with them and others who work for the company already. There were four interviews, each with a different representative and their questions were mostly related to personal qualifications, but each had different questions to ask.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of questions focused on why I would be a good fit for the company, which can be a difficult question to answer at length.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BASF Corporation in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume, I had the one-way video interview, which was a little awkward. But, everyone gets the same questions and time to answer the questions. Next was the on-site, all day interview with 5 people at different times during the day. Finally, was the last round which was a panel of the hirer ups. The process was fast and I knew within 30 days.

    Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Made to do an on-demand interview on the internet. Very different experience. A question would appear you had 30 seconds to think about it and the 3 minutes to answer all while being video recorded. It felt like giving a monologue. It is very different with no give and take. Also, you do not have a persons body language to feed off of. As a word of advice, practice, practice, practice! I have been told in several occasions that I am great in interviews but I felt like i bombed this one. I was told they went with another candidate. I probably would have too...

    Interview Details

    Spoke to recruiters at my university's career fair, they called for an interview a few days later. The interview consisted of two 30-minutes interviews with two of the recruiters. Straightforward, they spoke about themselves and then asked about me, then went on with typical interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked one technical question about a distillation column that didn't actually involve the distillation column, just knowledge about heat transfer in general.   Answer Question
