    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BASF Corporation (Paterson, NJ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    On campus interview then a two day interview process. 1st day is networking and then second consists of 3 interviews. It forces you to get out of your shell and be a social butterfly.

    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.

    Marketing Manager - Skin Care Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Florham Park, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BASF Corporation (Florham Park, NJ).

    Interview

    Process started with HireVue app interview (you have to download an app) to answer a series of 5 questions which you have 2 mins. to answer and recorded. As if it was not impersonal enough. The follow up in-person interview was set up and sent to without checking my schedule. In-person interview was unpleasant with a series of 3 interview meetings which of 2 were with a panel of people. Felt more like an interrogation than an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Considering you came from sales and don't have marketing experience how do you think you will be able to handle market analysis research and other marketing research activities.   Answer Question
