    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BD (Franklin Lakes, NJ) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter emailed me to set up a phone interview. She canceled on me twice. The first attempt for an interview was canceled 2 minutes before we were to be on the phone. She didn't offer a general apology for the last minute cancellation. When we did have the meeting, I found the recruiter rushed, and quite rude. She almost hung up on me when the three-minute interview concluded.

    I picked Interview Difficulty as Difficult because the interviewer was difficult in manner and awkward with her questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BD (Franklin Lakes, NJ).

    Interview

    1.) Application 2.) HR call on 8/1 (couldn't answer hardly any questions about the role) 3.) Phone interview with peer on 8/25 4.) Phone interview with 2 additional Finance team members on 8/30 5.) Onsite interview however both interviewers were on video conference 9/19 6.) Scheduled interview with no information on 9/27.

    You would think I was interviewing for the CEO position. Not sure I will take the role even if I get an offer as this process is telling me that NO ONE can make a decision. This position is a fairly senior level but this could've been done by one round of interviews in NJ.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at BD (Franklin Lakes, NJ).

    Interview

    Met with Director and VP level employees along with HR Recruiter. Intimidating atmosphere to the company given the time on the job of the people I interviewed with. Long walk into buildings from parking lot, leave yourself more time then you think. Buildings are essentially a maze, even the people that have worked there for 10 years don't know their way around the buildings.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at BD (Franklin Lakes, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Nice experience throughout the process. Professional employees, very intelligent and approachable. My interview consisted of three rounds:
    1. On campus speaking to the BD rep.
    2. An in-person panel interview with four team members. Lasted about an hour was a mix of both of technical and personality questions. I had to give a 5 min presentation on my research work.
    3. Final round interview at the HQ (New Jersey). They flew me out to NJ.

    The interview day was intense. One on one interview with 8 people for 45 min each, make sure to drink lots of coffee/tea :). There are 15 min breaks in between, The Franklin Lakes office is great - huge building with lot of art, exercise rooms, labs, offices, cafe etc.
    Interaction with the staff was positive and they genuinely want to know you as a person and if you will be a good fit. I felt very comfortable interviewing with them. Was interviewed from people high up (director, VP, manager, partner) to people who are junior. Overall a good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BD (Franklin Lakes, NJ) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty tedious, but well organized. I applied in Nov 2015; Got a call from HR a week after i applied through BD career site. HR screened me through a 30 minute call to ensure that my resume can be passed to the next step in the process. HR will make sure that you are the right candidate in terms of salary range, job experience required, general pulse check on the candidate.HR explained me the next step and expected timing for a phone interview, if selected for an interview with hiring manager. The process i went through >> HR Interview >> Hiring Manager Phone Interview >> In person interview (3 hours) with 3 hiring manager's who interact with the role >> then 2 phone interviews with hiring manager >> 1 HR manager interview >> Got a call from the HR on the job offer.

    From start to finish the hiring process has taken about 2 1/2 months. BD will ensure that they are hiring the right candidate for the role. Good process overall!
