    Computational Life Scientist II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bayer (West Sacramento, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening by HR>Phone interview with hiring manager>on site interview (presentation)>offer decision.

    Bayer HR department is very professional and helpful, the down side is slow on answering questions.

    The phone interview with hiring manager was very interesting. I've received the information that I'd like to know about Bayer as well as presenting my working knowledge towards to this position.

    On site interview was a bit rough since the flight was >2000 miles from east coast to west coast. The interview began with a 20 mins presentation about my work and followed by a 10 mins QA. The rest of interview was mainly group/panel QA. Overall, the interview was very friendly and knowledgeable.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bayer (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I answered a posting on a professional network, I was contacted for two phone interviews prior to being bought in for a face to face interview. The interview was mostly one-sided, I rarely got the opportunity to speak. I also got the impression that they did not know what exactly this position entailed or what they were looking for.

    Packaging Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Bayer (Newark, NJ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Half a day. Met with six people from the company, mostly in management. The interview was quite casual given the East Coast location and outward company image. I felt relaxed throughout, and wasn't pressured to answer questions with explicit detail. Net-net I found the experience to be smoother than I expected.
