    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BD (Franklin Lakes, NJ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I initially interviewed with a hiring manager who asked me overtly general questions, general to the point where they could not be answered accurately without my qualifying the interviewer moreso, though she was unable to be more specific.

    Having made it through the first interview and on to the second, I then spoke to a SME, who gave me a more specific outline of the position and, was able to better qualify me in terms of my experience and how well of a fit I would be in to their culture.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly behavioral and walking them through my resume/experience.   1 Answer
