    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Baxter (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on the website and Hr reached out to me after 3 weeks. I had an initial HR phone interview that went well. She asked me all relevant questions and was able to tell me about the company and role clearly.

    Second round was as phone interview with the hiring manager. This one was a bummer and got over in 15 min. I think the manager was not clear on what she was looking for. She also mentioned this was her first interview for the position. I was asked a couple of general questions like - tell me about yourself, how you deal with change/difficult client etc, I kind of knew that I will not get to the next round because the manager didn't know what to ask me after 15 min.

    Senior Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Round Lake, IL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Baxter (Round Lake, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online to sort of a broad "Sr. Engineers" posting and was contacted within a day or two from someone from HR to discuss which positions I would be best for. I then formally applied for two positions in particular and was contacted for a phone interview for one. The phone interview was pretty easy (it was with HR). Then she talked to the hiring manager and they decided to bring me in for a panel interview with 4 people all at one. The interview was scheduled for an hour, and went just a tad over. Everyone was super friendly and easy to talk to.

    Something that I want to mention, is that when I applied, I had to check a salary range desired. My desired salary was sort of right on the cusp and I didn't know if I should choose the lower or higher. I decided to pick the lower range and figured I could negotiate towards the top of that if they made a low offer. When my job offer came in, it was the top value of that range, which was actually what I thought was just about right and I am very happy with. So picking the lower range did not hurt me.

    Also, I didn't get the offer until ~2.5 weeks after the interview. They had planned to make a decision at least a week prior, so I thought I didn't get the position. I think it just takes longer than they think it will sometimes.

    HR lady was super nice and helpful.

    Regulatory Affairs Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Baxter (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview and then face-to-face interview by 5 people. It is so hard to make so many people like you through such a long time, if everyone has strong opinions and if other interviewers have different expectations from the hiring manager. Some questions will never have good answers. Such an interview process can completely destroy an interviewee's confidence to get a job in a big company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Baxter (Northbrook, IL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a human resources manager followed by another phone interview with a finance manager a week later. Both were very friendly and the conversations were quite casual. The second interview was a bit more challenging (not technical), but certainly not difficult. Really they are just looking for people who would be a good fit with the company culture.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Baxter (Round Lake, IL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I initially applied for a quality analyst position (part of due diligence and auditing) when HR contacted me to interview for two separate quality engineering roles. For this role, I had two interviews. The first was with the hiring manager and lasted ~1 hour. Very casual review. Just wanted me to go over my resume and some of experiences. Mostly asked what I thought were the best kind of teams I worked on. The second interview was a panel interview with 3 employees that reported to the hiring manager. One of the interviewers was at working from home and they stressed that there is a lot of workplace flexibility. Manager really caters the employee's experiences to their interests.
