    Interview

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    Interview

    First is a phone interview, then you get to go to the facility and meet 3 managers and walk around talking about experience and they get to show you how the job is. After you meet with the manager, be careful because they will lie to get people in the door to work there

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VWR in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was three different phone interviews - two were screening type of interviews and one was with 2 difference people from the quality department. Most of teh questions were standard questions and every one was very friendly. The last interview was tough because there were 2 people on the phone, both similar voices and they did not identify them selves before speaking.

    Sales Life Sciences - Pharmaceutical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VWR (Raleigh, NC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview with the hiring manager. Great guy. I then met with another sales rep in the Raleigh area to talk about the team and job. I found out a few days later that they had an internal candidate they would be hiring. The experience overall was good, but I believe they knew there was an internal candidate from the beginning and they could have been more upfront with that.

    Interview Questions

    • No interview questions. We really just talked about background, personality, team, and how I would fit into the team and company as a whole.   Answer Question

    Life Science Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VWR (Raleigh, NC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I actually interviewed for this position twice, in 2015 and then recently, but with different interviewers. The most recent interviewer was very hard to read and didn't give any feedback (poker face) so it was hard to tell if I should keep talking or shut up. I thought what I was missing the previous year when I applied was sales experience, but turns out they hired someone straight out of grad school with zero sales experience (who quit to go back to the bench). I'm guessing my personality didn't hit the right cords because I felt like I answered his questions well enough, but then again I got zero feedback during or after the interview.
