    Senior Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Bard (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    First there was a test online that I wasrequired to take. It was intense and long, much more than I had anticipated or expected. Then after that ere was a series of multiple phone interviews with Bard employees from across the country. They were spread out over a few weeks and after that, face-to-face interviews were set up at their offices, including with the reporting manager. There was a lot of focus on process improvements experience from past jobs and questions about managing people and processes.

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bard (Salt Lake City, UT) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a phone call from a recruiter out of Atlanta.

    She spoke to me over the phone about the position and it was more of a one sided conversation of her talking about the company and position. She did not ask any interview questions which was kind of odd. The next surprise came when she said I was actually applying for the company CR Bard and not Meridian Group (The company I thought I applied to) and you have to move out of state in two years.

    After the interview she sent me an email about the company and did another phone screening. This time there were actual personality and fit questions.

    I didn't hear back from her for almost a week, and then she started texting me...telling me to have a good weekend, questions about my resume, experience, and clarifications. This is the first time I have ever had a recruiter text me and I didn't think it was a professional way of communication. I called her to answer all her questions and she submitted my application to the director. I was told I would hear back but I did not and never got a reply back from the recruiter, director, or anyone from both companies.

    Overall, not very professional. Don't text me for interview and resume questions. At least be transparent to show what the real company I am applying for is. If you can't keep your own deadlines, then don't make them or pretend like you can get back to me on time.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bard (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the job I had been doing as a temporary contract employee for close to two years. Interviewed with H.R. Then another interview with two co-workers in the same department and finally a third interview with the media department manager. Even though I continued to come in and do the very job I applied for; over two months went by with no clear yes or no on the position. I followed up with management but was always left hanging with vague answers like- there is a hiring freeze. Meanwhile I was tasked with taking new hire photos of people who just got hired(clearly no hiring freeze). Finally, a coworker was tired of knowing what the manager was too cowardly to tell me himself, informed me that they had no intention of hiring me on to do what I was continuing to do for them.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very informal, met with three individuals at a restaurant for a dinner meeting. Had the plant manager, comptroller, and materials manager in attendance. The mood was light, and I had the feeling that each individual was just trying to get to know me better. Only a couple of questions sprinkled in (Who was a leader you admired most, what was your biggest failure, etc). Overall lasted about two hours and like I mentioned before very conversational.
