    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orange, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BASF (Orange, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Basic interview process:

    Phone screen with HR, phone screen with Hiring Manager. I was then brought onsite for an hour interview, 3:1 panel with managers asking me different behavioral questions.

    Most people were enjoyable, but the Hiring Manager struck me as odd--he asked the same questions in person as he did during the phone screen, which led me to believe they were interviewing me out of obligation, not out of genuine interest. Some questions, such as "Describe a Six-Sigma project you worked on", were asked three times. I would answer using the STAR format, even providing different examples each time, and was met with a deer-in-the-headlights look. Either they were unfamiliar with the vocabulary, or they weren't paying attention. It was difficult to not overlook the possibility that they were trying to take my examples and employ them at their facility. Who knows.

    I left the interview feeling like they were trying to hire a Quality Engineer on a Lab Tech title and salary.
