    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Bayer MaterialScience in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    On Campus Interview with two alumni from my university. Had already met both of them at an on-campus info session. Interview was very laid back, felt like more of a conversation than a grilling. Quick walk through of my resume followed by standard STAR questions. After each of my responses each of the interviewers shared a comment or experience that related to what I had said. Overall a great interview.

    Commercial Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburg, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburg, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Bayer MaterialScience in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was an intern at another location and they told us about the Commercial Trainee programs in Pittsburgh. We applied for the position online and those who were selected for an interview were flown to Pittsburgh and put up in a nice hotel with rental car, all paid for.

    The day before the interview they took us to the country club to meet with the managers and ask any questions we may have. The food was decent and the managers only wanted to talk about themselves (golf, how great their kids were, etc). When we tried to talk about ourselves for them to get to know us (whole point of the interview) they didn't seem interested and started talking to other managers while we (the candidates) were still talking.

    The day of the interview they called each one of us (there were more than 30) into a ball room at a hotel near the airport. It was panel style with normal interview questions. I thought I did great and left with a smile.

    It took them over a month to get back to us on whether we would get an offer. I was not given an offer. They said it was because I didn't demonstrate "prior team management" enough during my interview. Hey, at least they told me why I didn't get it.

    Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baytown, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baytown, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bayer MaterialScience.

    Interview Details

    I was asked to create a PowerPoint about myself. It thought long and hard about what I wanted to say because I did not want to just go off about how super awesome and amazing I thought I was. Instead of just accomplishments of mine, I talked much more about why I decided to do my major, why I did the minor I did, and why experiences I had from my extracurriculars. This was my first phone interview so I didn't really know what to expect. Overall the interview took about 30 minutes. I talked about myself for about 15 minutes, 10 minutes for questions they had about my presentation, and then the last five minutes were the typical, why do you want to be an intern for us type of questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really. Questions about your presentation will be unique to you and the questions I was asked weren't difficult, more clarification type questions.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    interviewed at Bayer MaterialScience in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter reached out to me over the phone and asked me a few standard questions before scheduling two additional phone interviews, one with my would-be supervisor and another with a hiring manager. I had scheduled a summer commitment through my university department for one week over the summer, and they were unwilling to accommodate this for the 10 week internship. The interview process stopped after I had revealed this information.
