    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    First round was a phone interview, then advanced to final round onsite interview. Onsite interview involved a team based project, we were given one hour to complete the project. Overall questions were pretty straight forward, mix of personality and technical based questions.

    Clinical Nurse Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bard (Baltimore, MD) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and had an initial phone interview with the hiring manager pretty quickly afterwards. Spoke with a nurse manager from another region then the sales rep manager. I finally had an in person interview which went well. The whole process was pretty grueling and everything went through the recruiter. I got pretty far in the process but they ended up hiring someone else. The hiring manager didn't have the decency to let me know himself. I had to bug the recruiter to find out and she texted me that they were going with someone else. To me, that isn't professional and I am glad I did not get an offer in the end.

    I think even though this isn't a sales position I think they were looking for a nurse with sales experience to support the sales reps. They also make sure you are ok with traveling most of the time. You get a company car, credit card, good benefits.

    Clinical Affairs Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Bard.

    Interview

    They mean business and want the most highly trained and qualified people for the job. I had 2 phone interviews, on separate days before being asked for a face to face. During the face to face interview, I was interviewed by about 5 different people. A few days later, I was asked for yet another phone interview. They definitely screen their candidates throughly! Once I accepted the offer, they asked that I do a drug screening, and they also did a background check. Seems like they only want the most qualified for their company, and I admire that!

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.
