    Manager Regulatory Affairs Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Very stressful experience. This was one hour panel interview with seven people. Three were on the agenda, the rest showed up without ever introducing themselves. When the time was up, the panelists simply started getting up and discussing their next go-to meetings and complaining about Mondays being “crazy busy”. (The interview was on Monday). I wasn’t given a chance to ask any questions at the end. I tried following up with the recruiter and the hiring manager, but never heard back, not even a standard rejection email.

    Head of IT & Automation Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb (Boston, MA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Received an unsolicited email from a recruiter regarding the position. I spoke with the recruiter by phone and she told me my background sounded excellent for the role and would I please apply to the job online via the company website. She asked if I would be available to fly to New Jersey in two weeks and I said that I could do that. As requested, I went through the online application process and did not hear anything back. Nearing the two week mark, I reached out to the recruiter to find out if I should still plan to fly to N.J. I did not get any response back.

    Two months later, I got an email from someone different at BMS, asking me if I could come in for a second in person interview to follow up with the interview i had with [name]. I replied that I never had an in person interview at BMS for this role but would be glad to do so if it makes sense.

    The contact then reached out to me for a phone interview instead, which we had. During the interview, I felt that there was no interest in my candidacy and this person was just going through the interview steps with no real interest behind it. There were very few questions about me, mostly just telling me about how difficult the role is and listing out all the different responsibilities.

    Research Investigator I Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb (Princeton, NJ) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward starting with a phone call with the hiring manager briefly discussing qualifications. After the phone call I was notified in about 1-2 weeks that I was selected for an onsite interview, which was half a day (9am-3pm) where I gave a 40 minute talk about my previous research, and then met with different members of the team. Mostly they wanted to see how I would fit with the team, and asked a few behavioral questions which they really didn't seem to care about but had to ask per policy.

    Undisclosed Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a panel of 3. One of the panelists didn't have the correct resume, the second panelist showed up late while I was talking to the other two. For the most part everyone seemed engaged during the interview except for the 3rd panelist, the same person who showed up late, was checking their phone the entire time. If you aren't interested in me as a candidate that's fine, I'm not a perfect fit for every role and I don't expect to be. But have some respect for me at least. The interview was only meant to last 45 min, you can stay off your phone that long. Terrible candidate experience.

    The process is much different today, I interviewed 30 years ago. I have been part of the recent interviewing process. BMS now starts with telephone interviews. Then the candidate is brought in for a day of interviews, including lunch.
