    Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BD (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    My total interview process lasted 4 weeks and consisted of 4 separate interviews spread out over 2.5 weeks. When I hadn't heard back after 1.5 weeks, I emailed to follow up and got an immediate response that the position had been filled by a more qualified candidate. Since it seems like there is the potential for breakdown in communication, I'd recommend sending a follow up email within 1 week so you aren't putting other things on hold. When I asked for additional feedback, the same email re-worded was sent.
    Because my interviews were all separate, I had to go over my applicable position and skills each time. There weren't many challenging questions asked, but one of the directors did say that I was exactly what they are looking for; therefore, I thought they went well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BD.

    Interview

    Applied online, received phone screen request. had interview with HR. everything went well. Answered all questions, HR wanted to setup interview with hiring manager. Decided to figure out a time via email. After that HR never contacted me again. Also tried email the HR but never got a response. After one year I received an email that position was filled. Very unprofessional. Should have the courage to inform the applicant if you are interested or not.

    Documentation Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I will put a caveat and say I was not interviewed for the company, but this is a review of the multiple recruiter companies that are working on their behalf. I have been contacted by 9 different recruiters today alone for the same position, and every time I block one another appears. I have even had one recuiter call me, I responded to ask him to send me the details since his English was so heavily accented, I was reading the email within the 5 minutes he sent it, he texted me since I didn't respond the second he sent it, so I emailed him to turn down the opportunity, then he tried to call me to pressure me into the job. This type of occurrence has been happening over at least the past two weeks. I honestly feel harrassed at how incessantly and pushy the recruiters are being, almost verging on being desperate. Even if I was truely interested in a position, their behavior alone would make me run for the hills. I am putting this review specifically on Becton Dickinson since almost every recruiter I spoke to was working for allegedly a different recruiting company. In addition, even multiple recruiters from allegedly the same recruiting company would email me about the same job position for Becton Dickinson on the same day. Unless this is a scam utilizing Becton Dickinson's name, I thought people should be aware of this type of behavior.

    Associate Territory Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BD (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn and asked if I could send them my resume because they thought I would be a good fit for the position based on my profile. Sent her my resume and she asked if I was available for a phone interview later that same day which we agreed on a time for. Interviewer called promptly at agreed upon time briefly went over the position and then asked me to walk her through my resume. While I was in the middle of going over my resume I was rudely interrupted and bluntly told that I don’t have the right sales experience to qualify for this job and that she didn’t want to waste my time any longer and quickly got off the phone after mentioning that if something changes she would let me know.

    Truly turned out to be a big waste of time especially considering that I was contacted directly by her because I was a “good fit” based on her search - only to be told over the phone that I didn’t have the type of sales experience they were looking for.
