    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Bayer.

    Interview

    During Merck/Bayer merger our interview process was ok. It was lengthy but only because they were trying to learn what they were taking on. We all became Bayer employees but had to go through the formal interviewing process.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bayer (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through an online job board and got a call the next day with the sourcing recruiter. She thought I was a great fit for the role, indicated she'd pass my resume to the hiring manager. Two weeks go by without a word, so I followed up, she then indicated she would reach back out to the hiring manager to get his feedback, 3 weeks and counting... Radio Silence. I get the hint but it be more professional of them to provide an update.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Bayer.

    Interview

    I was taken to a lunch and spoke with HR. It was super laid back, and I didn't even know it was an interview until the end of the process. They're all about seeing how and where you'll fit.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bayer.

    Interview

    Asked to dial in for a phone screen and the manager and someone else was on the call. The call lasted 15 minutes. The questions were vague, the manager from India was very confrontational, and felt I would never want to work for this manager or company. Told the recruiter I did not want to be considered for this position.

    Associate Submission Medical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Whippany, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bayer (Whippany, NJ) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by the recruiting department at Bayer. The interview process started with three phone interviews: HR, and two senior-level medical writers. All three were very conversational and easy to talk to. The hiring manager, located in Berlin, was in the US that same week, and so we met in person. That interview included more formal questions similar to the STAR format, focusing on Bayer competencies.

    An on-site interview followed two weeks later with a writing peer, HR, and the head of the department. The mix of questions was similar to the in-person interview with the hiring manager. I was impressed by the explicit focus on setting me, the interviewee, at ease.

    Interview Questions

    • The focus of the questions was geared not to what I do, but how I get it done and how well I work with other people.   Answer Question

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bayer (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Two phone interviews w/ typical questions about prior work experience and coursework and an in-person interview with similar questions.

    My one complaint is that they didn't bother to notify me that I wasn't selected. A quick "thanks, but no thanks" email would have been much appreciated given that I had invested a decent amount of time in the process.

    Process Quality Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Absolutely unprofessional at best. The Bayer recruiter was careless and lacked follow through . Finally was given my schedule and was impressed by maybe two of the managers who were not determining if I got the role mainly because it was outside of the Quality group. Was treated with disregard by the very team I would be working with and was asked a lot of behavioral questions
