    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BD (Orlando, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and received email acknowledgement within a week to schedule phone screen. Phone screen completed with recruiter within 48 hours. First phone interview with current employee scheduled days later. Contacted by recruiter with one week for notification I was granted face to face interview with Regional Business Director and current employee in role in a successful territory. Clear timeline communicated by company regarding notification within 1-2 weeks. Notified 6 days after face to face interview that I was not selected candidate. Professionalism and timeliness of all contacts was outstanding. Despite not being the selected candidate for a final interview I really appreciated being notified so quickly that I would not be moving on.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BD (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Lengthy. I prefer not to say anything else because it went on so long, included a variety of people and I refer to remain anonymous. However, it tended to be more involved than most, with interviews and tests.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BD (Sparks Glencoe, MD) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online 10/25/16 and had a phone interview with a Talent Acquisition Specialist on 11/7. Then, I was asked to complete a Sonru Video Interview on 11/8. And, later was contacted by the hiring manager on 11/15 to schedule an in person interview. I had my in-person interview at Sparks, MD on 11/21 and was notified via phone that I was offered the position on 11/23. I received the offer letter via email on 11/28. Overall, the process was very fast and the interview was like any other. I was asked questions about my experience and the skill set I have gained from it. I was also asked questions regarding conflict resolution, prioritization and multitasking, just to name a few. Most, if not all, of the questions were behavioral in nature. The interview was split in 2 rounds, and each round had 2 interviewers, so I spoke with a total of 4 people. Each round lasted around an hour, and then afterwards, I was given a tour of the facility.

    Application

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

    Interview

    45 Minute Behavioral Interview. They stuck to strick script so there wasn't a lot of time for me to make conversation with the interviewers and develop a relationship with them. One interviewer was very receptive to the things I had to say while the other interviewer seemed very unimpressed. Thought it was a good cop or bad cop kind of ordeal. Hard to tell...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BD in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was more difficult than others, but other than one mildly technical question, it was all behavioral. There was a 1-on-1 interview the first day, and then I interviewed with another candidate and two recruiters for two back-to-back 45 minute interviews. I didn't end up getting the position, but the interview was a good experience overall.
