    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BD (Franklin Lakes, NJ (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview first and then was asked to come in. I went in for an in-person interview, and two or three people (mostly engineers, I gathered) interviewed me at a time for one hour each. They asked challenging questions such as how a mechanical pencil works and giving me scenarios I might find on a job and how I would handle it. They were really trying to see how I thought through some of these things. I struggled through a lot of it.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BD (Boston, MA (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by a recruiter. Had a 30 minute call with him about my resume, then moved on to the next call which was another 30 minute interview with a BD technical recruiter for the team I would be working for. This was mostly a very general overview of the position and a general conversation about my experience. He seemed to have a pretty good understanding of the tech side of things. Next I talked to the person who was heading up the project I was working on. It was one last in-depth conversation about my credentials. It was mildly frustrating that at the end of the call I was told they would contact me one way or the other and I never heard from any of the 3 people I talked to ever again. To be fair I also should have reached out after a week of not hearing back from them, but it was still irritating that they never contacted me ever again.
