    Quality Control Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was approached by a professional recruiter ; however things went downhill once the Fremont site employees spoke with me. There is so much talking about one employee by another ; it was uncomfortable and I wasn't sure if it was some sort of strange test. Nothing technical was asked and a few digs were made of my resume which contained contracting roles ( because nobody is hiring FTE) without starting of temp. At any event there was so much political tension and talking about one another I made up my mind that working there would be strange .

    Specialist, QC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    No Offer
    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.

    My first call was to discuss information about myself and my future plans after I graduate.

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!
