    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at BD.

    Interview

    HR phone interview (very helpful), hiring manager phone interview (to the point, great) , and on-site interview 3-4hrs with team. Recruiting and interview process took about 3 wks but could def be longer for travelers.
    Overall behavioral/ career aspiration questions with HR and hiring manager.
    In person team more on working style and experience. Most interviewers seemed to purposely pause or divert conversation to own career development, the company, or the groups rather than ask me specific questions. I appreciated learning but every time slot was a bit much and I feel didn't give me time to prove my skills and trainability. Gave vibe they had already written me off due to my experience, even in their phrasing of questions ... Which they knew well about before calling me in.. I appreciated and felt the few actual questions were relevant to role.
    A red flag was when they discussed other personalities which displayed clear disdain for some people they worked with. You can hire people to interact well but it was a sign that they don't seem to get rid of people that don't collaborate well together. Additionally, besides higher leaders, the other interviewers didn't have much enthusiasm for their jobs, but dreary. Overall, nice people with average questions that felt a bit condescending. But I gave benefit of doubt for the role seemed to have potential.
    I didn't hear back for 2 weeks, not even update to my request by email and only heard back after contacting hiring manager directly. In all my interviews I have had extremely helpful recruiters throughout whole process, whether an offer or rejection, not only when the decision suits them best. Glad I picked another offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BD.

    Interview

    I met BD at my college career fair. I dropped my resume to the recruiters and I applied online that day. Within two days, I was invited to dinner with the recruiters to answer any questions I may have about the company or internship program. All of the recruiters were very inviting. They made sure I knew all of their names and had their contact information. The next day I was interviewed by two of the recruiters. The interview was almost entirely behavioral with a few brainteaser questions. It took several weeks before I heard back from them about my results. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BD in September 2017.

    Interview

    Behavioral focused. There was two people where both were present the entire time. One was a manager who asked the questions during the first half, and the second was a much younger associate who was in the final stages of the training program who asked the questions during the second half. Weren't super dressed up, pretty relaxed.
