Very Easy Interview
Common of Interview Process Within Company Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and 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 Question – 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
