    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Baxter (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Baxter (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I had a 5-person panel interview consisting of managers and supervisors from various departments and was asked the typical interview questions. Make sure you know your resume well because they will ask you questions about it and will have to talk about a situation, the action you took and the result. About a week later, Baxter made an offer and Hiregenics, the temp agency that they work with, called me to make an appointment to take the math/reading comprehension exam. I passed the exam then it was onto the paperwork, drug test, and physical exam. The initial salary was a lot lower than I was expecting, especially since I have a bachelor science degree.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Baxter (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    They asked basic questions about myself and how I would handle myself in different situations. Such as how would I deal with workers that do not have a college education. They also asked about my experiences at my internship.

    The interview with HR was very straightforward with simple questions about my college background. The second round of the interview was also very causal, or so it seemed. It was unclear if there was any genuine interest in the types of questions asked, everything was based off the resume.

    Interview

    Very basic and simplistic interview. No need to worry. If you have a college degree (science or engineering) you'll feel like you're dealing with idiots (HR).

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Baxter (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    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

    Negotiation

    No negotiation

    Interview

    Applied through my school's career bulletin board. Got an interview. One interview with two interviewers. Interviewed at the front security guard's office. They seemed pretty accustomed to onboarding people often.Very nice people who seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me as a person as opposed to asking bs behavioral/hypothetical questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Baxter (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online, then received an email for an interview. When I arrived for the interview one of the managers what was suppose to interview forgot about the interview, but eventually showed up after waiting for an extra 15 minutes after the scheduled time. The questions where basically asking me whether I can handle working in tough conditions and lift heavy objects.
    They asked me to provide examples of me working in a laboratory environment and I just gave examples of me working in chemistry and research labs at school.
    The rest of the interview was just them talking and explaining the job conditions and along the way asked me if I will be fine with that. They also asked if I am comfortable working with different types of people and how/if I can handle confrontational situations.

    Interview Questions

    • nothing unexpected. Some basic interview questions. Tell them you have a good experience working in hands on laboratory projects and get along with people and you should be good.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was hired through a temp agency so they don't negotiate.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Baxter (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Had brief phone interview and was called in for a panel interview. Didn't hear back for a few weeks until was given the offer over the phone from recruiter. Only way I was given interview was from employee referral, applying online is futile.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too unexpected. Was asked to describe an object in detail that that someone else can't see. Asked about strengths and weaknesses, and how to learn about something you know nothing about.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much room for negotiation, pay is based on work experience and education.
