    Executive Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager wasted my and my colleagues time and money. Being at the same company for over 10 years is not necessarily a good thing. It shows lack of motivation and failure to engage. HR sent emails of requirements which I completed. The links were incomplete and HR did not respond as they stated they would. First telephone interview the hiring manager blatantly asked my age. When I called him on it he said "it is not against the law".

    Interview Questions
    • I loved this question after the hiring manager did not even get up to shake my hand or get off his computer, "what do you want to do when you grow up".   View Answer
