    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at VWR.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to schedule a phone interview with a recruiter. The phone interview was easy enough and consisted of a few questions and an overview of the company. The recruiter told me she would contact the lab manager and email me by the end of the next day as to whether or not the manager wanted to move forward with the interview. That was last week and I never heard from the company again. If I wasn't selected to move forward then fine, but to tell me to expect to hear from you and then completely disregard me is beyond unprofessional.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at VWR.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly easy. They asked questions like "What are three characteristics you think a successful sales rep must have?", "When was a time that I had to work with a team and what was your atmosphere". They were late to calling me which felt unprofessional, but overall, a very pleasant interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at VWR (Henrietta, NY) in March 2018.

    Interview

    the interviewer was very thorough. I had a phone interview first, but I didn't get that position because it was a team manager. I had no experience as a manager, so a couple of years later, they asked me back for a team member interview in person.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    A lot of work and very little pay. Interviewer didn't seem to. E very knowledgeable about the company. Typical questions but expectations vs salary did not match. It took a month to get a response then the interview was scheduled 3 weeks out. I found that very odd.

    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.

    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.
