    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tarrytown, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at BASF Corporation in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    This was an entry level position. I applied through BASF's career section of their website. It took well over a month for them to pull my resume and make the initial contact. I was contacted via email for an initial phone interview with a recruiter. This was followed up by a second phone interview with the group leader. Last step was an on site interview. The onsite consisted of a 30 minute interview with the HR manager, a 30 minute technical interview I gave on previous research, and an hour panel interview with 6 members of the team that I would work with. There were only a few technical questions, the majority of the questions asked were behavioral, about why I wanted the position, and on previous projects I had worked on. They responded via email a week later to let me know that I had not been selected for the position.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Florham Park, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at BASF Corporation in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. About a month later, someone from HR contacted me for a phone interview, and a week later I was brought in for a group interview with the hiring manager, one of his peers and the hiring manager's boss. The three interviewers seemed extremely unorganized, but were and also very intimidating. The first thing I saw that that the hiring manager's boss had my entire resume, including my name, highlighted, so I knew I was in for a rough interview. They often talked over each other and did not allow me enough time to answer a question before one of the other 2 asked me another one. They were just firing out questions, from my resume to "what if" scenarios, like crazy. They just kept asking questions for the sake of asking questions. It was not a pleasant experience.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BASF Corporation in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The campus recruiter from BASF was very nice and and professional. The interview was conversation based, asking candidates how they would handle certain situations and to know how candidates have handled particular problems in the past. There was a greeter before entering the interview room, and I find that to be a bit awkward.
