    Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    One of the most impressive interview experiences I’ve encountered. The interviewing process was very tough (behavioral-based) and every interviewer (6 total) was thoroughly prepared with job and situation specific questions. The process left a very solid impression of how Agilent engages their employees and absolutely made me want to be a part of this organization. The onboarding process is robust and comprehensive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Agilent Technologies (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Phone interview with two people asking behaviorial questions, followed by 3 similar 1:1 interviews
    I was thrilled to be told i was getting an offer.
    That was followed by almost 3 weeks of being told..." you will have it tomorrow, someone is on vacation, someone is out of the office unexpectedly...." and so on. Each day with a different excuse.
    I shut down othet job searches i had in process as i had planned to accept this offer.
    Then, after almost three weeks of being strung along, i was told they would not be hiring this position and instead the decided to open the job in a lower cost country.

    Strategic Sourcing Manager Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    3 emails with recuiter who did not know anything about the position or local office as they were working remotely. Would not take a call and would only email. Astonished to get an on-site interview. Panel was all women who had no experience in marketing sourcing. Person currently in the role was near tears in describing the role. Other members of the panel were ex-government procurement people. Talked a lot about process and cutting budgets. Were not intertested in sustainable or optimization strategies.Everyone seemed obcessed about filling out a form than listening to me. Low eye contact, cold, impersonal, very corporate, not innovative. On top of that it is located near strip malls and auto dealers. Offices are outdated and there are dirt trails on the carpet. Seemed to be a cartoon of a big company. Low energy, outdated, not diverse workforce. Seemed to be a boneyard of former careers.

    Bioreagents Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Agilent Technologies in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online via LinkedIn and got a response within ~3 business days. Agilent then has you fill out a microsoft word doc on your domain experience with bioreagents.

    After I submitted this, the recruiter canceled the initial interview on me and then also rescheduled the second interview without apologizing.

    I rescinded my candidacy since I felt this experience was a reflection of the department and their hiring practices.

    No Professional approach for the candidate, completed all rounds of interview but made me waiting for 3 months to send feedback, its not about rejection but keep updating the candidate about the status. one manager was saying she ll hire only if you are willing to work on weekends, felt like trying to exploit candidates with h1b situation. technical rounds were very professional, too long interview process. total it took 6months to complete all rounds and get feedback. Please respect the candidate who is applying.
