    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Baxter (Deerfield, IL).

    I was contacted by a external recruiter. Multiple phone interviews with recruiter, and a extensive phone interview with the hiring manager and boss. I was brought in for face to face interviews. I met with 4 people and was given excellent feedback by the recruiter. Subsequently, I was brought back in to meet again with the hiring manger and HR person again, but was asked to present a plan, and again recieved positive feedback. Two days later, received email from recruiter that the position was put on hold and given no further explanation.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Baxter (Northbrook, IL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a human resources manager followed by another phone interview with a finance manager a week later. Both were very friendly and the conversations were quite casual. The second interview was a bit more challenging (not technical), but certainly not difficult. Really they are just looking for people who would be a good fit with the company culture.

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

    Interview

    Interview process was easy and straightforward. I was contacted by HR over email approximately 3 weeks after applying to the position online and was asked to interview at the facility later in the week. No phone interview. The in-person interview was short and very casual. The interview team was a group of 3 quality team members of varying position. The questions were straightforward and mostly revolved around my previous work experiences while in university. The rest were basic behavioral questions concerning quality management.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Baxter in October 2014.

    Interview

    Had a very vague interview with HR, received a couple emails. Later from out from a friend that they only really hire by referral and give you are hard time on interviews. They shouldn't waste people's time. The reality is that it is not what you know it is who you know.

    Interview Questions

    • What do I know about the company. I answered; however, the HR rep kept harping on a question I honestly answered and kept brining that up in so many words. If you can't get past HR you are pretty much dead in the water.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Baxter.

    Interview

    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

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