Senior Marketing Manager Interview

Senior Marketing Manager
Deerfield, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Baxter in May 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online. Very long process. 3 phone interviews, 9 in person interviews. A case study presentation was a little strange. Every contact was unique and interesting. Still defining the role. Pretty standard interview with exception of long decision making timeline. Hiring manager was pretty detailed about their vision and what the expectations are. All parties were familiar with my résumé and prepared to meet with me.

Interview Question – Really nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The benefits are fantastic and salary competitive. I negotiated a higher salary by having all my facts ready.

Senior IT Program Manager - Business Intelligence Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Round Lake, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Baxter in May 2013.

Interview Details – Totally sucked. The whole process was a waste of my time. They did not know what they wanted in the ideal candidate. Kept me waiting in a small dark room for 50 minutes when the interviewer came late. No proper feedback, no follow up nothing. I had to run after them to get a canned response. Nobody even reviewed my resume before interview. All of them were reading the resume while talking to me and saying "Sorry could not get time to review your resume".

After phone interview, they told me I am a great fit and asked me to provide work samples etc. In person interview went so well but then nothing. Such a waste of my time. So unprofessional bunch of people.

I understand not every interview lands you the job, but I hate it when stupid people waste my time by not knowing what they want and provide no proper feedback.

Interview Question – Draw the full architecture of the BI solution you worked on.   Answer Question

Customer Service Specialist Interview

Customer Service Specialist
Deerfield, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Baxter in December 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online and also had a recommendation from a person that worked there. I then recieved an email that wanted me to answer some questions like "Do I have experience in a call center?" . I then recieved a phone call from a interviewer a couple of days later. We spoke for a half hour and she said she would get back to me. I waited for almost a month and recieved a call for a face-to-face interview. That consisted of two interviews with the call center managers. There were three people in one and two in the other. I waited another month and recieved an email stating there were going to go with another canidate. then about a few weeks later I recieved a call from a temp agency to work in Baxter's call center. I declined that offer.

Principal Engineer Interview

Principal Engineer
Round Lake, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Baxter in October 2009.

Interview Details – Disorganized for HR processes but technical interviews were very good. Mostly looking for right cultural fit within the organization or the specific team doing the hiring. Seems like the process to get the position approved and selected was really cumbersome though - even though the hiring manager indicated I had done well, it still took a few week s to get everything worked out.

Interview Question – Just general behavioral questions nothing really stood out as difficult. Although because it is a very diverse company be prepared for different accents in phone interviews which can be tough.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Vacation is pretty limited - if you don't negotiate some your going to lose it. Pay and bonuses are pretty structured so not a whole lot room there
