    Quality Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Round Lake, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Round Lake, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Baxter in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Deerfield, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Baxter.

    Interview Details

    Tedious. Multiple interviews starting with an email list of questions. IF you make it past that, you get a phone interview with the recruiter, then they set up an in person that lasts 4 hours with at least 4 different managers. I worked as a contractor for 6 months then got hired finally. They like to keep contractors for a long time.

    Interview Questions
    • They are all difficult as they are situational questions. Be prepared to asnwer many, many questions over 4 hours that are the same but phrased differently. They also expect you to have on the spot real life examples for each question.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was offered more than I made in the current department and it was a better location so I took it without trying to negotiate.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Deerfield, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Baxter in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    After several interviews with Baxter I note that Baxter is thorough, inclusive and professional. Staffing will handle the interview cycle and Baxter is welll prepared. For one position, I interviewed with 8 people in one day. To date my experiences have been positive and the employees committed. It is difficult to get an interview without an internal referral.

    Interview Questions
    • They use the STAR method (situation, task, action and result) of interviewing. The question usually begins with "Tell me a time when..." Nothing overly difficult, however Baxter expects a resulting outcome that is positive and somethign achieved.   Answer Question
