    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

    Interview Details

    I meant a recruiter at a career fair and I was asked on an interview for the same day at my school. On the interview I was asked questions like: What are your weaknesses? Do you have any technical writing skills? and other questions like that. There were only about 10 questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

    Interview Details

    It was a convoluted and drawn out process with a little keystone cops thrown in for good measure. Lots of phone interviews mixed in with in person and back to phone. Was not even sure that I got the job even after getting the offer! Definitely need to improve the process since I hear it still can be bad.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    HR was not organized and did not give feedback or even attempt to contact me after the interview process is over. If you make first contact post interview, you will be met with a basic message informing you they will contact you when a decision is made. This is same for most but not all internal employees. Internal employees hear back from external applications more so than internal. Communication is an area HR could work on.

    Interview Questions
    • Which job did you apply for? - HR did not know which job I was interviewing for at the time of my 1:1 with one of the managers on the interview team. Therefor could not provide this individual with the correct information   View Answer
