    AREA SALES MANAGER Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at CSL Behring.

    Interview

    Large binder of STAR based questions along with a personality test indicate a sales management team and HR team that is woefully inadequate to properly choose a candidate for a job and that must rely on crutches to make a choice. Yes, sometimes we do hire people that are shams but are fantastic at interviewing but we need to develop a sense of what we want and not rely on the results of a PI or thick binder with scripted STAR questions. The candidates feel undervalued and are unable to truly show what makes them different and extraordianry.

    Reasons for Declining

    Daily duties of the role was incredibly junior in comparison to the title and money. I couldn't bring myself to take a role that I did 10 years ago....Otherwise, I liked the company and location etc.

    QAO Specialist II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kankakee, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at CSL Behring (Kankakee, IL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a staffing agency about this position. Initially I did not get a lot of detail about the job before submitting to a 30 minute phone interview, but I still had many questions about the job: the hours (shift or daytime) and the responsibilities (I wasn't sure what exactly I would be doing in this position). At the end of the phone screen I was told that they would like me to come in for an interview, and I wanted to use the opportunity to find out more about the company and the job. I interviewed one week later on-site with four individuals, about 30 minutes per person. Everyone was very kind, but seemed stressed out; it was clear that they were understaffed. Apparently there has been some sort of surge in the demand for people, but I couldn't formulate a clear explanation for this. At the same time, I noticed a lot of empty cubicles and offices in the front part of the building, and not so many people moving around the hallways. At the end of the interview I had a better idea about the structure of the process and how personnel was utilized, but I still didn't know exactly what I would be doing if I were to be hired, with no guarantee on working hours because staffing was so thin.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I was not interested in working shift or irregular hours, and the pay was a bit low for me. However, I think this would be a fine place to work with the right offer.

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CSL Behring (Bradley, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty much all communications based behavioral questions. Interviewed by 2 engineers for over and hour, and they were open to questions throughout the interview. They ask the standard "what do you know about CSL Behring" so do the research. Interview was followed by a short tour through part of the plant.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CSL Behring in February 2013.

    1. Phone interview by hr very basic. What are your current responsibilities? Why do you want to leave? What are your greatest strengths? Weaknesses? What is your management style?

    2. Face to face starting with the VP of technology and ending with the hiring manager. Total time 5 hrs. Basic questions again. Nothing too hard or unusual.

    • Got the "why should we hire you?" standard, but nothing too difficult.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Hr gave me a low verbal offer. I countered with something higher than I expected them to accept. We met in the middle. Pretty typical.

    HR Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marburg (Germany)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at CSL Behring (Marburg (Germany)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Die Karrierewebseite ist sehr gut gemacht. Wenn man sich auf eine Stelle bewerben will, gibt es nur die Möglichkeit ein Online-Formular auszufüllen. Dafür muss man als erstes den Datenschutzbestimmungen zustimmen. Wenn man dies ablehnt, kann man sich nicht bewerben. Soviel zur freiwilligen Zustimmung...
    In der Eingangsbestätigung schreiben sie: "Sollten Sie innerhalb der nächsten vier Wochen keine Rückmeldung von uns erhalten, war Ihre Bewerbung leider nicht erfolgreich." Ist zwar weniger Arbeit für die Personaler, aber auch wenig wertschätzend dem Bewerber gegenüber, der Zeit und Mühe in die Bewerbung gesteckt hat.
    Dann kam es zum Telefoninterview. Dabei wurden nicht die typischen Fragen. Es ging sehr speziell um Fachfragen.
    In der Einladung zum Vorstellungsgespräch war leider keine gute Wegbeschreibung und vor allem wurde nicht beschrieben, wie kompliziert es ist, auf dem Gelände in den Konferenzraum zu gelangen. Vor dem Gelände, auf dem sich mehrere Firmen befinden, gab es zu wenig Besucherparkplätze. Man muss sich mein Pförtner anmelden. Dann hab ich eine Nummer erhalten, die ich an der Tür zum entsprechenden Gebäude eintippen sollte. Leider hat das nicht geklappt. Freundlicherweise haben mich dann zwei Mitarbeiter reingelassen. Im richtigen Stockwerk angekommen, war niemand zu sehen. Nach einer Weile begrüßte mich dann ein Praktikant/Werkstudent. Etwa 20 Minuten nach dem verabredeten Termin, ging das Gespräch endlich los.
    Anwesend waren ein HR Business Partner und die Head of HR Business Partner. Die Atmosphäre war angenehm, die Fragen ok. Schön fand ich, dass die Struktur der HR-Abteilung und die Stelle näher beschrieben wurden. Meine Fragen wurden auch ausführlich beantwortet. Obwohl im Telefoninterview angekündigt, wurde keine Frage auf Englisch gestellt. Ich hatte nach dem Gespräch ein sehr gutes Gefühl. Die nächste Runde wäre ein Gespräch mit zukünftigen Kollegen gewesen, was ich sehr positiv finde.
    Leider kam 2 Monate lang gar keine Nachricht. Auf meine Nachfrage sagte man mir nur, dass das Bewerbungsverfahren noch läuft. Nach 2 Monaten kam dann eine Standardabsage auf Englisch, ohne Absender, völlig anonym.
    Von Candidate Experience haben sie bei CSL Behring wohl noch nicht gehört.
