Interview

Interviewed with two supervisors. It was supposed to be three but one didn’t show up. Right off the bat I could tell the interviewers were not interested in being there. They moved quickly from question to question and seemed uninterested in my answers. Pretty sure one of the interviewers checked their phone during the interview. Overall not a very good experience.

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at MilliporeSigma in Apr 2022

Interview

At the hiring event on 4/28/22 in St. Louis I interviewed for a QC scientist which told me I wasn't qualified and that they were looking for a bachelors degree in biology or chemistry which was reasonable . He also referred me to interview for a packaging operator position and the guy there gave me an offer! Soon after I heard from the HR woman via email that the offer has been rescinded as they hired too many people for the position. That is totally unacceptable as a verbal offer followed by a 'sorry this position has been filled' is a joke even for Milliporesigma. As someone who has worked for Millipore in the past I would think that they would be considerate in how they wouldn't over offer for jobs.

Interview Questions
  • Do you have experience working with Chemicals? Who was your boss when you worked at Milliporesigma? Are you okay working 2nd shift?

Interview

There was an initial phone screen that lasted approximately 30 minutes and the person on the phone was incredibly helpful and informative. The actually interview was 2 hours with the first 45 minutes being a presentation followed by a Q and A for the remaining hour and fifteen minutes. All of the interviewers were kind and it felt like they wanted me to succeed in this process.
