    Service Department Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories (London, England (UK)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    2 interviews. Second interview I was asked to do a presentation on what I hoped to achieve in the next 6 months. Both interviews were with 3-5 people present. The questions were unclear and difficult to gauge what answers they were looking for. It was all very vague and disorganized. I felt that they weren't being straight with me and avoided direct answers to any questions I raised.

    Interview Questions

    • How you would handle under performers and difficult characters. It became obvious later that the team I would join was in a real mess and that I was expected to sack people at their request and carry the blame. This was their only solution and they were not willing to address the organizational issues that were causing the majority of the problems.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offered a good salary and benefits - however a company car was part of the package but they were unwilling to reveal what the car options were or how the scheme was run. They evaded the question because if worked out that they did not give you any option and that you were just assigned a car that the fleet manager felt like giving you. I left an 2.2 Audi A4 behind in my old job for a 1.4 Nissan Qaishqui. Once you joined there was zero negotiation - you were stuck with it.

    Nach einem ersten Gespräch mit einem Recruiter wurde mein Lebenslauf an die Firma weitergeleitet. Daraufhinh habe ich eine Einladung zu einem persönlichen Vorstellungsgespräch erhalten.
