    Chemist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BASF Corporation in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very slow, took 3+ months. The onsite interview is very short and does not provide enough opportunity to learn about the position, team, or highlight your skills. Asked for a lab tour, none provided. Main HR person and interview team seemed very nice. Overall process was not personable. I asked for feedback after the interview and none was provided.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BASF Corporation (Roseland, NJ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    They scheduled the interview to last an hour; which it did. I interview with five individuals within the department. The interviewers were courteous yet intense. Most of the interview questions were typical and a few more difficult questions to answer about the position. I got the impression that their work environment was very fast pace and stressful.

    Due to me receiving a scholarship, I was emailed to test and interview in the same day. I enjoyed the process it went really good ! Test is on a computer and you find out if you passed the same day....the test is mechanical aptitude very easy however, the interview was fairly hard & brushing up on basics is very important because mechanical questions will be asked. Practice in the mirror don't be nervous and remember you are selling yourself to this company !
