    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at VWR (Stafford, TX) in July 2017.

    Large gaps in between interviews, but really enjoyed all of the people I talked with from the original recruiter through higher up managers. Everyone was easy going and it didn't feel forced.

    Process Excellence Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at VWR.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted in a weeks time to schedule an interview. First interview was with the project manager, more technical. After a week I was contacted by the Director of process excellence to schedule a second interview. This interview was more about leadership experience and project management questions.

    This was my first interview here in the States and I was quite nervous. Unfortunately I couldn't secure that internship but it taught me a lot. I feel concentrate more on your project management preparation than anything else for this particular role.

    Interview Questions

    • First interview
      1. Tell me about yourself?
      2. What role did you play in your academic projects and how did you execute the plan?
      I dont remember much.

      Second interview
      1. When is a process out of control?
      2. 3 important traits in a project manager?
      3. How did you execute your six sigma project?
      4. What tools did you use in the six sigma project?
      5. Conflicts in work place and how did you handle them?
      6. Given a project from start to end how will you handle it?   Answer Question

    Technician, Lab Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VWR.

    Interview

    Scheduled a phone interview with recruiter in Texas for a position in Jersey using their calendar scheduling system. Times got mixed up, and I was asked to reschedule. When I asked for a reschedule I never heard back and a week later the position was filled, so I never had a chance. Such is life, but I will probably not be applying to this place again.
