    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at BASF in September 2018.

    Interview

    Applied in the beginning of September and received a call from the recruiter to schedule an interview a few days later. The recruiter was pleasant. Things seemed to match up between my experience and the job. If you notice on their job postings, many of them leave out the number of years they require from an experience standpoint, so you’re under the assumption that you are qualified. Very misleading for the candidate. Needless to say, my resume was to be forwarded to the hiring team. After countless follow ups, I kept receiving the runaround. Not sure what happened to my candidacy as I did not receive a rejection or an email response from the recruiter. Although I really wanted to work for BASF, given their hiring process, their antiquated systems, and their lack of transparency with the hiring process, I think I’ll pass.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at BASF (Singapore (Singapore)) in February 2017.

    The interview is ok but the hiring process time is very slow and HR failed to update the candidate on the interview which I feel it is very unprofessional and contradicting with what they mentioned or practice on their corporate website.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BASF.

    Interview

    Interviewed by 2 Directors and the HR Manager. Process is mainly headed by one of the active Directors who posed very real life scenario questions. I would rate it as a challenging Interview as questions are probed one after another.
    Everyone, including the receptionist portray skills of professionalism. I am impressed!
