    Talk with the field researcher and see if it's something you want to do. Not much pressure and since this is a "part-time" position, there isn't much formality with it.

    It was just a one on one info session, but it was a very good conversation. I would recommend it to anyone, and it provided very valuable information. Just a simple quesiton and answer sesion with an elevator pitch

    The process was fairly average. I applied online and was given a pre-interview screeing. Then I was interviewed by two supervisors. They were very kind but kept asking too many questions.

    Interview

    Bayer has two rounds of interview. Different with all the other companies that I have interviewed, Bayer arranged a group interview and asked me to give a research presentation first. It seems more like an academic interview for an assistant professor. All the colleagues are nice talking. And I really enjoyed the process.

    Interview Questions

    • There are a couple scientific questions. The others are common interview questions, like have you failed before, how did you handle the situation. I don't remember the exact words now.   Answer Question

    Associate Manager, Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Bayer (Whippany, NJ (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process entailed 3 rounds - 1 with hiring manager, 1 with team lead, 1 panel interview with team members.

    Team members were great and I enjoyed speaking with all of them. Very friendly and candid. My negative review is only for HR and the way she handled the process. She was slow to respond, unavailable to answer questions, untransparent and treated the candidate like nobody.

    I applied to company not only for the position and the brand recognition but because I aligned with their core principles - LIFE. Unfortunately, they couldn't live up to some of their own values such as "Build trust and be inclusive". They made a phone offer >> I tried to negotiate >> They rescinded the offer and did not provide any specific reasons despite follow-ups.

    In summary, yes companies can absolutely do what Bayer did, but do it in a respectable manner. The candidate does deserve to know what happened after he/she invested so much time going through the process. At very least, the candidate needs closure.
