    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Slow it took the whole year and constant diligence . The hiring manager asked me to apply and attempted to humiliate me because I was contracting . The hiring manager devised ways to make it hard for me to get the job based on discriminatory tactics because I was not a regular but contract employee . Her staff made fun of my work experience and they continued to belittle me because of my desire to work in quality . Bayer will NOT hire outside talent they continuously hire family as well as Bayer employees from

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Bayer (West Sacramento, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I had my resume online (Indeed or Glassdoor) and was contacted by a recruiter from a staffing agency that contracts with Bayer Crop Science, and I happened to be looking for a new job. I already had a year experience in QC/QA Microbiology in addition to agriculture experience so that helped a lot. The interview was pretty straight forward, tell about yourself, answer a few questions as to work experience/people experience (10+ years in restaurants helped get a lot of my people skills across). Everyone was really nice and friendly and now I work with them. Having previous experience, a clear direction as to future goals, being yourself, all contributed to getting hired; but also I think I got lucky, right place right time! Searching for jobs can be difficult, keep trying.

    Interview

    I was interviewing to work at a Bayer Animal Health facility as a contractor in the QC lab. The interview was very focused on Core Competencies that were seen as relevant for the position. There were two people in the interview: the direct supervisor and the manager over that person. I was given a tour of the lab afterward.
