    Great place to work with a solid 'take care of our own' culture


    Stable, resistant to change, can be a stifling place for innovative though

    EHS Specialist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hercules, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories (Hercules, CA).


    I did a telephone interview with and onsite interview with HR, the EHS director, and then the rest of the EHS Team. The interview was a positive experience and everyone seemed very friendly. I received an offer but it was much less than I thought it would be, the recruiter I spoke to was very pushy and seemed to take it personally that I declined the offer.
