    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Danaher (Pomona, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was a series of three interviews. First was a one-on-one with more explanation on their end about the position than specific questions. Second interview was with two people and it was more focused on how my experience would be a good job. Third interview was with a higher up and he walked me around the facility and then asked a few questions about my personality. total time was about 1.5 hours

    Buyer/Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pomona, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Danaher (Pomona, CA).

    Interview

    Two interviews. One with someone from the division of the company I was going to work under and someone who is in charge of all the buyers and planners. Very standard questions. Tour of the Pomona office. The Pomona office seemed pretty slow, but mostly because it is a new building and companies are just starting to move it. The hiring process is very slow. I did not hear back from them about scheduling an interview for about a month and have yet to hear back from them about a position.

    Human Resources Summer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Back-to-back interview, you have to do interview with two recruiters one by one. The first one asks you the general behavior questions, the second will ask you questions based on your resume. The second recruiter will pick some interesting points from the resume and ask you to describe them. Those recruiters are generous and make you feel good in the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • General behavior questions. One tricky one is tell me about a time when you were criticized but in fact you did not deserve it.   Answer Question

    Senior Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Danaher (Washington, DC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed thru an agency for a Senior Executive assistant. Met with several executives including the one this role would be supporting. Also was required to interview with two other junior admins which did not work directly with this role. Although I was brought back in several times to meet everyone, was denied the role based on feedback from the junior admins (not the executives). They stated they do not feel I would be happy there longterm! I dont see how someone else can determine where you will be happy longterm. The executive was very kind and a joy to speak with but my impression after interviewing with these junior individuals was that I was way too experienced for the role and they may have felt that. Their choice of words to deny me the role was a true disappointment and I would definitely not recommend this company for any support roles. Suggestion for HR, train those interviewing candidates to avoid leaving any negative images of your company.

    Learning and Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Danaher.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen. Weeks without hearing. Hiring manager contact with phone interview. Weeks passed then email asking if I was serious about the job. I answered. Relocation was an issue that was addressed. Then was passed to another hiring manager for a different job which I did not know existed. Interviewed with that individual. That individual indicated that I would be targeted for that job not the other job. Scheduled to meet for a face-to-face. That moved three times. Finally met and instead of five people met with the two hiring managers that I had interviewed with on the phone. The first hiring manager interviewed and began asking if I understood both jobs. Apparently the two had not discussed which role that I had come to discuss. The interview questions were about the job that I was no longer interested in or traveled to discuss. In addition they were questions that were discussed three months prior. He was rude and unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected...all of them since the role was not what I came to interview/discuss.   Answer Question

    Finance Interview Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Danaher in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very behavioral / situational based. Interview did not focus on how you could actually do the job. Met with a broad team and many interviewers asked the same questions as the previous interviewer. Come prepared to answer how you handle conflicts, organizing yourself, a struggle you overcame. Remember to provide real life examples and outcomes.
