    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BASF Group (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting my application online, I was contacted for a phone interview for the position of Sales Representative. After two rounds of phone interviews, I was asked to come and meet the various levels of managers I would be reporting to if offered the position. BASF paid for my travel, but were of little help in planning the travel arrangements. After the interviews I was told I would be notified about the decision as soon as it was made. I was not offered the position; an internal hire/transfer was selected instead, and it became apparent that my interviews were simply a formality and that they had no plans to consider hiring me. I was also promised recommendations from several of the managers I interviewed with for other positions within BASF, but was given no such recommendations, even after following up with them via several emails.

    Interview

    I only have the opportunity to get a phone interview. The questions were very basic, like what are your weakness? and also they make sure that you have the qualifications for their position. The HR person was nice and familiar with the resume. However, I never heard from them back.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at BASF Group.

    Interview

    I applied online and it took a while from them to schedule the phone and in-person interview. The in-person interview was mostly behavioral questions asked by supervisors, staff and HR. I thought it was nice that the interview team acknowledged that the questions were difficult and the process was grueling.

    I did try to negotiate, but in the end, it was a fair enough offer.
