    Sales Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Duluth, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Boehringer Ingelheim (Duluth, GA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    2-3 weeks after my initial online application I got an email to set up a screening interview with HR. After that, I completed a personality assessment online which was actually pretty demanding. A few days later, I was invited to interview in-person in Duluth, GA. I had to present to 6 interviewers and then had two three-person panels that interviewed me. Their questions were pretty standard but the interviewers grilled you hard. I think they were trying to see if I would crack or not. Regardless, the office was relatively young and had nice community areas. Still waiting to hear back from them, disregard my offer status.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Boehringer Ingelheim (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There was a two-part interview process: a written exam and an interview. I was afforded one or two hours (I don't remember the exact amount of time) to work on the exam, which was a mix of behavioral and technical questions. The technical questions were wide-ranging, from business-oriented questions to questions asking for executable code. The interview was entirely technical, in which the interviewer and I worked through a case study that required knowledge of statistical distributions and time-series.

    Specialist, QC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boehringer Ingelheim (Fremont, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was approached by a staffing agency about a position with BI. They submitted my resume and two weeks later BI requested to meet for an interview. The interview lasted about 90 minutes and met with many different employees in 30 minute blocks. They all asked me how well I worked with others and it was apparent there was drama within the different groups of the Quality Control department. Seemed like there was a huge problem with individuals not being team players, which did not appeal to me at all. One of the interviewers began to speak ill of her coworkers and I decided right then that their culture wasn't the kind I wanted to be a part of.

He was very thoughtful in his answers and let me know what I was walking into right away and not sugar coating the job position. I then had a one on one interview with the same person. We discussed why I was the best fit for the position and where my strengths would be able to shine. Great way to conduct interviews!
