    The interview started with a phone call from HR. They asked questions like why did I want to leave my current position and what did I do during my time at my current job. After explain a bit about the position and where it was located I was told that my information would be passed along to the hiring manager and will be contacted if they want to move forward.

    I was eventually contacted by the hiring manager and was ask more detailed questions about my background and my motivations for leaving. I then told more information about position and what I would be working on. The interview ended and later I was told that they wanted me to fly into San Diego for an interview. They flew me in the day before in the morning to get a chance to explore San Diego. The following day was the interview where I interviewed with all the people I would be working with, 3 regulatory affair specialist, Engineering team lead, Engineering Director, Risk Analysis Director and Compliance Director. It ended with lunch with the hiring manager.

    It was a long process - about 45 days. First an HR phone screen, followed by the hiring Manager phone screen. Face to face with the hiring manager 2 weeks later. 3 weeks after that was the panel interview at the head office. I had 4 separate interviews with many department heads and supporting staff and concluded with a group observed situational role plays. I thought the process was very well organized.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BD (San Diego, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Long drawn out process, poorly coordinated and not very inquisitive towards my qualities.

    After being contacted by their recruiting staff, we set up a phone interview that was rescheduled twice. During the onsite interview process of four 30min individual interviews, most of the time was spent by the interviewers telling me about the company and the issues they face with almost no room to comment on how my skills could contribute (without interrupting them). I felt I had made a good first impression on all and I had answered all their questions satisfactorily, but felt I could have been asked more questions about my skillset. I had asked how long the process was estimated to take and what the next steps were, but the answer was very vague ("We still have more candidates scheduled") and found out there would be a decision after all interviews were completed (No second interview?)

    There was very little communication from HR and each time I asked, I was told "We should have a decision by Friday", only to have to reach out and ask again the following week. This went on for over 3 weeks. Overall the process lasted from mid April through mid June, with little (and poor) communication from HR and no followup from the hiring managers.
