    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Deerfield, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Very long recruiting process. HR are very slow and opaque. The on-site interview was relaxed and everyone very polite and engaged. I applied online in May 2013, received first call in September, interviewed on site in November. The job was put "on hold indefinitely" in December 2013.

    Senior Manager Regulatory Affairs-Englewood, CO Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Baxter in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Job was posted in late SEP 2013. I applied in late OCT. Interviewed by site HR phone screen within 2 weeks. On site interview mid-NOV. Interview was with hiring DIrector, VP marketing and QS Sr. Manager as well as dept staff (2). This was a back fill for someone that left the role in early August. My impression was that the role posted was not the appropriate level for the job, as this person would be the top RA staffer responsible for 3 sites (2 in CO, one in FL). They also had a major workload with integrating into Baxter, as well as remediation of legacy design files and commercialization of new products. After talking to the dept staff, my impression was that they hired under-qualified RA staff. Plus I was told that the dept used to consist of 5 people (now 2). 2+2=red flags. They basically approached me as if I was the dream candidate and then dissed me by not communicating that they choose another less qualified and lower salaried person. I look at it as a blessing.

    Interview Details

    If you are contacted through a temp agency, they will be the ones setting up everything for you and guiding you along the way. First is the phone interview and then the in-person interview where you meet with your manager and a few others you would be working with. During my in-person interview, I got a quick tour of the plant as well.
