    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

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

    The process took approximately 4 weeks from start to finish. I applied online and was contacted via email 2 weeks later. I did not have a phone screen, but interviewed with a panel of 4 managers. The interview lasted 1 hour and consisted of a series of approximately 30 behavior-based interview questions. The key is utilizing your experience to articulate multiple examples and showcase how you've handled situations in the past. I was contacted a week later with an offer. They have a very streamlined process for hiring and I certainly appreciate their timeliness.

If my candidacy is no longer being considered, at least have the courtesy to respond. This definitely leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
