    Operational Excellence Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at MilliporeSigma (Saint Louis, MO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interview with hiring manager, other managers and co workers lasting 3 hours. Interviewer had a hell of a time finding the conference room, causing a 15 min. delay. Apparently the conference room was booked by people in Boston.

    Too many conference rooms that the local employees can't remember where it is and no available standard floor map! When the interview process is disorganized, it can't be a good reflection on the company culture. Remember, while the interviewee is being assessed, the company is also getting assessed by the interviewee.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MilliporeSigma.

    Interview

    I applied and interviewed with MilliporeSigma in April 2017. Some representatives, including a few who had attended my college, came to visit us on campus and gave us a tutorial about their company. I submitted my resume to them and they arranged for me to have an in-person on-campus interview the next day. Two weeks later I was contacted by one of the interviewers and told to officially apply for the position on their website. Another three weeks later I was called by a hiring manager in their HR office and asked to come and visit the company in St. Louis for an all-day interview and facility tour. I went to the interview the following week and did not hear anything from them for an entire five weeks. This was a horrible experience in that I had not a clue if I had the job and they had been vague at the interview ("2-3 weeks" they had said for "six to thirteen" positions). This was extremely unprofessional on their part and I am thankful to not be working for them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MilliporeSigma in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email for a phone screening the same day. The phone screening was very easy and it basically went over the aspects of the job/company. After about a week, I was invited for an in-person interview. I sat in a conference room with 2 employees who took turns asking me questions about my resume and about my experience performing the required tasks for the position. Took about another week to hear back about their decision. Overall, pretty easy interview if you have the required experience.
