    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at BD in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    BD interview process was comprehensive, organized and focussed on involving all levels of the organization to come to a decision. They utilize the phone screen conducted by the hiring manager. Phase 2, you interview with hiring manager, peer group. Phase 3, you interview with mangement of the functional organization and internal customers (management/exec level).

    Interview Questions
    • What are you an expert in? and Are you just looking for a job? were questions that came from the Director of the PMO. Having been in consulting for the last 16 years, I was surprised by these types of questions. Both include known "pifalls", calling yourself an expert or job vs career. After responding to these questions, post interview I could have handled them a better with qualifying questions or better organizing my though process in a way to address what I have been doing the last 16 years.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    Overall the experience went well, interviewers were friendly, but I was not impressed with the overall operation. This was for a job in Baltimore and the hiring manager for a senior scientist position was fresh out of a PhD program - did not seem like the right fit for me. I was offered the job after a few weeks of waiting, and by then had already accepted another offer.

    The CTM position is a no-win situation. All the blame, all the responsibility and no time to actually perform the function.

    Senior Engineer, SAIS Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin Lakes, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin Lakes, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at BD in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial steps were a phone screening with the BD HR recruiter and a phone interview with the hiring manager. I was invited to come to the BD campus for a series of five 45 minute interviews with an HR rep, various managers, and staff level engineers. Upon arrival at BD, I waited for 15 minutes in the lobby until I was led to the interview room. Questions were mostly technical in nature and mostly about what was on my resume. The fifth interviewer was stuck in a meeting so I ended up being interviewed by four people. Approximately 2 weeks after the interview, I was told I didn't get the job. I knew it was a bad sign when arrangements weren't made for the fifth interviewer to talk to me over the phone.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at BD in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    In general it was a great experience. There are a lot of behavior questions during phone interview. They would break you with questions in the middle of the presentation and get ready to answer tough questions.
