    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • It's been a while but many were arbitrary and had nothing to do with the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were taken aback that I would dare ask.

    Supply Chain Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

    Interview

    Questions were very behavioral. Asked for 2 strengths and 1 weakness. Asked about times that you felt you were a leader, helped a team through a conflict or solved a conflict on your own or in a team. Also asked what might set you apart from other candidates and WHY choose BMS.

    Interview Questions

    • Many of the questions could have the same answer so try to know ahead of time which answers you have to each. They asked what set me apart from other candidates and that was hard to answer for me.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Nothing to do with the company, I just couldn't leave school a semester to do a Co-Op.

    Interview

    Got a call from recruiter; asked about basic information. The onsite interview was almost the whole day. Was interviewed by people above the position level. Most of the interviewers asked some pre-set behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    Asked for more ; didn't get it

    Normal Interview process. Behavior questions. Nothing was unexpected. Just prepare for typical behavioral questions. The key is to ask and demonstrate that you are capable to do the job. Speak about what you know and try to look like an expert.
