    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Baxter in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Managers here at Baxter Los Angeles are not good mentors for new employees, they spend most time kissing upper management to move up. Therefore the interview process is subpar and people who interviewed feel like it is a hassle to interview rather than glad to see a new prospect.

    Interview Questions
    • Hard to say, most of the interviewees like to talk about themselves more than asking questions. The director can talk you to sleep, I left thinking, wow, the only question out of him was what's my name.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Baxter in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Screening was average. Scheduling was a different matter. Request for availability resulted in 2 weeks silence. When I followed up, they said the position was filled.

    After moving on with my life, 1 week later they requested for an interview. When I asked for what position (I had applied for multiple), it turned out to be the same. Never asked about the confusion, although I always wondered.

    All day interview consisting panel and 1-1 interviews; panel of engineers (peers), then supervisor (1-1), and finally manager (1-1). Engineers and supervisor seemed enthusiastic. (Standard questions about background, what-would-you-do scenarios, etc.) Manager did not seem prepared for the interview and read off a "script", and seemed too busy to care about "the process". While touring, noticed a lot of young engineers - recent college grads, young adult types.

    Declined offer due to negative response from negotiation attempts.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    No room for negotiations. Their response: "You should be glad there is an offer". Exact words.
