    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Baxter.

    Interview Details

    Met Baxter at a job fair and gave them my resume. I received a call about a week later for an interview. (Baxter paid for hotel and gas to get there). I "interviewed" with about 5 different managers and all were very friendly and welcoming. Easiest interviewing process ever.

    Negotiation Details
    I did not attempt to negotiate, but would think it would be easy to do so if interested.

    Operation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Baxter.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is painful. The HR recruiters are disorganized and do not give enough detail or big picture of the interview process. internally, it takes over 3 months to post a position and another month to get candidates then another month for interviews and 1 more month for a candidate to start. Additionally, New Employee Orientation (NEO) is only every 2 weeks so if a candidate is given an offer they must pass the background check (which can take from 5 days to 2 weeks) so you could potentially miss 2 NEO sessions before starting.
    Don't give your notice at your current job until you have completed your background check and have an official start date, not just a letter.

    There is not a standard in the questions asked by management. HR's direction is not specific.

    The hiring and interview process was very streamlined. I had an interview and an offer within a week of each other. Interview process was very friendly as they seem to value personality just as much as technical knowledge.

    Global Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Baxter.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the recruiter within 3 weeks of submitting my resume online. The recruiter was very positive and upbeat, a positive experience. The next step was an in-person interview with the "team", HR, and the hiring manager and his team. That took place about two weeks later. They said that they would regroup the following week to decide on candidates.

    I believe that it was a very fair interview process. Any questions that might illicit any type of "illegal" response was avoided. Like there were no leading questions about children, marital status, religion, place of residence, nothing like that at all. I left my in-person interview truly with the feeling that if I didn't get the job, then it wasn't for any reason other than I wasn't the right candidate for the job.

    I was impressed with the interview process.

    Quality Engineer II Interview

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Baxter in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen, 2 interviews and a co-travel. Typical as far as I'm concerned. A thorough vetting by a recruiter, then a face-to-face with hiring manager, then a co-travel with a sr. rep, then a corp visit. Just like all these gigs except some have and RVP in-between also.

    it is a lateral move for me, no work from home and did not like the team lead. I can be the lead on that team based on my skills but it seems the team lead was threatened

    Quality Engineering Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Baxter in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a currently employee so I received an email scheduling a phone interview within a couple days. After the initial phone interview, I received an invitation for an in-person interview 3 weeks later with a panel of 4. For an entry-level position, the questions were all fairly predictable behavior questions. Most of them piggy-backed off of experience detailed in my resume. There were a significant amount of scenario questions that required support from a personal experience. It was a casual yet professional vibe as they were mostly trying to gauge whether my personality suited their needs.
