    Anonymous Employee in Berkeley, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Berkeley, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Bayer.

    Interview Details

    No HR interview, staffing set up phone interview with manager/onsite interview with presentation-small room with 4 people, given update as the presentation was highschool book presentation!!!! interviewers didnot have clear idea of what exactly would be the job role which didnot match job description. It looked like they had already made up mind to hire and I was there just for the sake of interview. HR is horrible-for reimbursment!!!

    Interview Details

    They were very prompt in their communications. I thought the interview with the first person went well. The second person was not interested in me. I could tell from the shift in tone from the first interviewer. Later I found out that I had done well in the interview, but that they had chosen an internal candidate.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Bayer in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application online, received a phone interview where I was asked some behavioral and technical questions. The phone call ended up going to an hour as the interviewer and I got into an interesting discussion about my research. After passing the phone interview, I did a face to face interview with a senior engineer whom I would be directly working under if I was accepted. At this interview, there were more technical questions and we discussed the project I would be working on over the summer with him.

    Siebel Business Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bayer in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The job was interesting (business representative for a packaged solution implementation for a global firm), so I thought I'd submit. Somehow the recruiter called me back in a few days. We had a discussion and based on my responses, within 2 days she had called to setup the interview. I basically had an hour to interview with 2 peers at the same time (equivalent to a panel interview). The questions were more business oriented and not exactly targeted to the software being implemented. My take is that they were looking to see how mature and what my life experiences were as they were veterans of the firm (17 & 23 yrs of service). Clearly this did not bode well for me but there's only so much you can see yourself without having to lie.

    Key Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bayer in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Internal recruiter does the initial phone screen. Essentially she was just looking to make sure requirements were met and a couple of situational type questions. Next interview was set set up during the call for two days later. Met with the hiring manager and a senior rep from the territory. There did not seem to be a specific process (ie. STAR) being used for the interview. It was a relaxed give and take. I was informed by email from the recruiter the next day that they were going forward with other candidates.

    Applied to online job posting, then received an email weeks later to schedule a phone interview. Had a phone interview with an HR person, and then got an email about a month later inviting me to interview on-site. It was a 1-on-1 with an upper-level manager in IT. About a month later, I was emailed to come back for another on-site interview, which involved several other candidates for the job (about 12 in all). About a month later, I received an offer via email and then a letter in a mail after.
