Helpful (5)Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bayer (Whippany, NJ) in May 2015.
I received an email from a recruiter out in Pittsburgh who scheduled an interview with me in two days. I talked to her for about 15 minutes and she said she would schedule an interview with someone in the Whippany office. I had a phone interview with someone there for about a half an hour, reviewing my resume and talking about my experiences. I scheduled an in-person interview about a week later in the Whippanny office that lasted about two hours with several different employees. All of them were very friendly and courteous and I was able to connect with them. The office is bright and beautiful.
- They will ask you about your interest in health care / science technology. For those of us whose work is a little unrelated (finance/accounting), you need to be a little aware of that. The questions were all really standard, however. At no point during my three interviews did I get a curve ball question 1 Answer

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bayer (Whippany, NJ) in March 2015.
The process started with an initial phone interview where the hiring manager described the company, the business unit structure and R&D programs. Hiring manager also asked about my educational background, work and managerial experience. This was followed followed by an invite to interview in person.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bayer (Parsippany, NJ) in June 2014.
The interview was very basic for a first chat. I was asked the standard questions about myself, my past career, my education, etc. I was asked to bring in my portfolio, and it was reviewed in person.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at Bayer (Whippany, NJ) in November 2013.
I was appalled at the level of unprofessionalism displayed at the interview. They made me wait for over 40 minutes after my scheduled interview time to begin, changed the interview format from one on one to group interview, and were busy chatting to each other about mundane things. Some of them even signaled to passers by through the glass meeting room walls and constantly messaged on their phones while talking to me. I am glad I don't have to deal with these people on a daily basis! Even though they represent a great brand, they seem to be an unhappy, disrespectful and overworked bunch. The only positive in my whole experience was the HR! I didn't expect such shocking behavior from a top notch company such as Bayer. I have worked in leading medical companies and was expecting Bayer to behave like one of those. Very disappointing, so beware when you interview with them!!
- When attempts to 'catch' my non existent resume flaws failed, they added several rude and condescending comments to the usual interview questions Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Bayer (Montville, NJ) in February 2013.
Interview is relatively easy, because you won't get one without meeting their minimum academic or work experience requirement. Negotiating salary takes forever because HR in Piitsburg has to consult with Berlin, and that takes weeks, sometimes months! Know the company, the drugs/products, and show your true personality.thry hire more on group dynamic than experience.
- Why are you leaving your current position? 1 Answer
Very limited negotiations, and it takes forever because of the back and forth between Pittsburgh and Berlin.
