    Interview

    All I can assume is that they dont have their act together at all in their Talent Acquisition department. Constantly have roles open that they cant seem to fill either by contract or perm and dont follow up with candidates as to their interview status.

    Interview Questions

    • Spoke with several internal Talent Acquisition employees and had good conversations. We were supposed to go to the next steps. Then there was no follow up after checking in by both email and VM. You would think a large company like BASF would be able to manage the recruiting process more professionally.   2 Answers

    I applied online. I interviewed at BASF Corporation (Research Triangle Park, NC) in April 2017.

They have a very streamlined process for hiring and I certainly appreciate their timeliness.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at BASF Corporation.

    Was contacted by recruiter after applying for position. Then invited to complete online interview. Panel interview followed. The process has been positive thus far. Company has been very good communicating next steps and all employees have been very friendly. I'm documenting that i haven't received an offer, but that's only because I'm still waiting on a decision.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the recruiter a week later and asked me to complete a questionnaire. She did a phone screen with a week later. I was contacted by her again after a week to come in for in-person interview (panel). I sent thank you note after the interview and followed up twice but have not heard back and it has been almost a month. If my candidacy is no longer being considered, at least have the courtesy to respond. This definitely leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
