Sales Interview

Sales
Saint Louis, MO

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Bayer HealthCare in March 2014.

Interview Details – Screening phone call followed by phone interview. Screening interview was very typical; what made you apply for the position, why do you want to work for the company, what do you expect out of your job in the next 3 years. Phone interview was more detailed with specific questions about work and educational history.

Interview Question – What was your worst mistake at your previous employer.   Answer Question

Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager
Morristown, NJ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Bayer HealthCare.

Interview Details – Terrible HR and staffing. Very little communication and detail. Thank goodness I had a good head hunter. Had to deal with 5 interviews on several different days and then a long period before an offer came. Seemed like HR had no clue what this job entailed. They spoke of it as a higher level than where I was at, but it was a lateral role at best.

Interview Question – If I were a color what would I be?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Lots of asks, but lots of take it or leave it.

Operational Excellence Intern Interview

Operational Excellence Intern
Berkeley, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bayer HealthCare in April 2013.

Interview Details – One single interview, and I was given the option to do it either over-the-phone or in-person (I lived 70 miles away from the work site). I took the option to interview in person, as I find phone interviews to be somewhat awkward and inefficient.

I was asked a standard set of questions that anyone would ask an intern. The general procedure of the interview was to go through my resume and ask more detailed questions about my previous work experience, choice of major, leadership roles, and so on. It lasted around 45 mins and went well.

Interview Question – What do you know about [disease the product made here treats]? What do you know about [product made here]?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations available, but I was more than satisfied with the offer. For someone in my position, it was great.

Senior Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Senior Manufacturing Engineer
Coon Rapids, MN

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bayer HealthCare in September 2013.

Interview Details – I made it through three interviews, to lose out to a better qualified candidate in the end. The initial process seemed impersonal, with PDF attachments on emails to indicate what steps to take, or what was being communicated. Once the hiring manager actually reached out to me for an interview, things were a whole lot more personal. There was a large focus on "green" technologies and team spirit building. The middle interview was a back-to-back series of panel interviews, and the hiring manager was kind enough to let me know who I would be talking with prior to the interviews. The individuals who would have been my peers brought their leads and senior technicians with them, and the juniors did most of the questioning, while the supervisors took notes, and made clarifying questions. I appreciated that they involved many levels of production in their interview process, because it apparently contributes to building a team atmosphere. I have nothing but good things to say about the individuals that I encountered during the interview process.

Interview Question – They didn't include it as a requirement in the job description, but many individuals asked about prior medical assembly experience, and experience in the use of laser welding on a microscopic level. The site manager had seen my resume, but came across forcefully in regard to a qualification that I was in-process with (completion date was weeks away). Even so, he was clear and even encouraging.   Answer Question
