Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Deerfield, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed 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 Question – 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

Analyst Interview

Analyst
Deerfield, IL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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.
