Difficult Interview

Manager, Analytics Interview

Manager, Analytics
Madison, NJ

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Bausch & Lomb in December 2012.

Interview Details – The whole process took about 10 days. One thing that I really liked about the interview process is that it completed all the 6 rounds of interview in one day. That saved me from taking days off every now and then to attend interviews.

People who interviewed me were knowledgeable and very comfortable to talk to. I was interviewed by 2 Sr. Managers, 2 Directors, 1 Exec. Director, and finally the HR.

Interview Question – This company works mainly on SAS. There were questions on ROI Analysis, Call Planing, and Incentive compensation   Answer Question

Average Interview

Software Development Engineer Intern Interview

Software Development Engineer Intern
Syracuse, NY

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Bausch & Lomb.

Interview Details – Single interview. Asked basic questions about my resume. B & L is mainly a optical device company, hence the software department is very small (3 people)
The HOD interviewed me and mentioned that he had only one seat vacant.

The interview was telephonic and went off very well. After basic project related questions, the interviewer asked a few programming concepts (mainly VB.NET)

I was very confident after the interview. However, B & L never responded and I had to call them a few weeks later to know that they had selected somebody else.

Interview Question – What would be the best way to traverse the surface area of a contact lens and find out a defect?   Answer Question

Accounting Interview

Accounting
Greenville, SC

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Bausch & Lomb in March 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online. Took a week to get initial contact from HR, sent me a list of questions I had to fill out. I then had a phone interview with HR rep from corporate. After that I had a phone interview with a hiring manager. Then I was brought on-site and interviewed with 5 people individually. Then had a phone screen with a VP from the location. And the last step was with VP from corporate. I didn't make the final cut. Overall was a very long process almost 3 months from start to finish. But I left with a positive impression of the company. Everyone was very professional, asked good questions and tried to make me feel comfortable and welcome. A smart group of people who know their jobs very well.

Interview Question – Job specific questions.   Answer Question
