    Interview

    I applied online. Within a few days, I received a call from their HR Recruiter at 7pm. He misread my resume and thought I was a "male" because when he called me and left a message, he referred to me using the "male" version of my name.

    I quickly returned his call and left a message on his voicemail, informing him that I was very interested in the position. He never called me back again.. After I followed up two more times (with no luck), I assumed he intended to hire a "male."

    Seemed unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at BD in March 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume via LinkedIn. Got called for pre-screen quickly. But the HR specialist scheduled a different than what I was told... After a week, she called me again to check a time for phone interview. But the hiring manager said they had a candidate from local. This could be done quick. Maybe I need to contact them earlier.

    Interview

    The interview process I encountered with BD was lacking on many aspects. I interviewed with a sales manager who supposedly was only given this territory three weeks ago. He could not honestly answer simple questions such as what this geographical sales area this territory actually covered. The job description stated 25% travel in my metro area. Clearly the sales territory was much larger than stated and all he could say was you go where the money is. He would not answer when I asked him if the listed job description was wrong. He and his sales manager assistant also peppered me with specific questions regarding my current non-lab industry’s strategic planning that had absolutely nothing to do with this position’s responsibilities. They stated it was their version of shark tank and seemed to really enjoy themselves. Totally unprofessional behavior to say the least. Two hours after the interview, I received a call from corporate HR stating that this position was filled internally. What an absolute waste of time and poor representation of BD especially if they had already decided that fast to fill a position internally. I really had high expectations going into this interview with BD, extremely disappointed.
