    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

    Interview

    I can't go into much detail about my interview process with BMS because I had such a bizarre and unique experience. Thus, revealing lots of details could easily identify me. What I'll say is that I had a *very* negative experience recently with BMS and, in the process, encountered complete gaps in communication within the organization, lack of timely decision making, rude treatment and favoritism among other negative qualities. They were offering a competitive base salary and both their products and pipleline are fantastic, but I'm now reconsidering applying for future BMS positions after this.

    I applied online – interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

    Interview

    I had applied online and was called for HR interview within 2 weeks after applying. HR interview was easy with quick scan of the resume submitted and few other details about comp, etc. Then follow-up phone interview was arranged with two people. Meeting was started on time and interviewer was finding it hard to remember the questions he wanted to ask...Most of the questions were very basic and not sure if the interviewer was serious about the process. Somehow he is interested in completing allotted time than finding more about experience or seeing fitment.

    Interview

    After 2 days of having applied I got an email to set up and screen phone interview with the HR representative. I got the call right on time, I was told that the interview might take in between 20 to 30 minutes, however the interview took around 15 minutes. Actually there was 1 open question, she asked me "Tell me about you? and how soon I was able to start for the position, and What is my current salary... Unfortunately 4 days later I got and email saying that they moved forward with other candidate.

    Interview

    Applied through staffing agency, called back in 3 days with interview information. Interviewed for position. Hiring team was very friendly, and laid back. They asked fairly simple questions to gauge personality and technical skills. Toward the end they did throw in a few questions that were a little over the top. Someone with scientific background should be able to explain and provide a decent answer, but an entry level may not. Best advice, don't try to make something up or beat around the bush, just be honest. Waiting to hear back, have been offered a few other positions as well.
