I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EMD Chemicals in July 2011.
Interview Details – Good show, thought I was interviewing with a top notch company. Company looked impressive through this process.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at EMD Chemicals in June 2009.
Interview Details – EMD was interviewing for multiple positions following the closing of the Novagen facility. Unfortunately they didn't tell you which position you were interviewing for. Instead, they brought in a panel of folks from the East coast and stacked as many interviews as they could into a short trip. They seemed to want to know what was out there, and then choose from the pool to fill the openings.
The result was that you might be interviewing for any of multiple positions, from Sr. director down to product manager (marketing) or Scientist I (R&D). Unfortunately one emphasizes different skill sets for different positions. Also, the person to whom I would report was not there, which made it more difficult, although this person had been there during the previous day's interviews.
