    Software Development Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Syracuse, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Syracuse, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Bausch & Lomb in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume online and had a phone screen a few days later with a contract recruiter. In the phone screen:
    - The job was described to me
    - I was asked about my "ideal role"
    - Asked if I was able to work in a matrix environment
    - Asked if I had pricing experience
    - Asked how my colleagues would describe me
    Then we discussed my career progression and I was asked about a desired salary range and provided with the expected range for this role.

    A phone interview with the hiring manager was scheduled for about a week later. In the phone interview:
    - The job was described to me as well as the organization of divisions at the company
    - I was asked to walk the interviewer through my resume and to provide 1 or 2 highlights/ accomplishments for each role.
    - Describing these accomplishments provided springboard opportunities for detail questions by the interviewer for me.
    -Asked if I had previous P&L responsibility.

    I asked how this position was available and was told they'd been running lean, as most companies have been, and were now beginning to staff up a bit. Was told they had a growing team and were interested in people bringing in new ideas and abilities.

    I sent thank you emails within 24 hours after each interview to both the recruiter and the hiring manager, respectively. I was not contacted at all post interview, so after 3 weeks I sent a follow up email to the recruiter to inquire about the status of the role. I received an email reply the same day thanking me for checking in and letting me know that the hiring manager had decided to move forward with another candidate.

    I was pleased with the responsiveness of the recruiter overall and both interviews were pleasant and good discussions. The only thing I am disappointed in is the lack of communication post-interview. It would have been nice to have been informed once I was no longer in consideration, rather than having to inquire weeks later. But overall, a good process.
