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

    Interview

    Applied online, received phone screen request. had interview with HR. everything went well. Answered all questions, HR wanted to setup interview with hiring manager. Decided to figure out a time via email. After that HR never contacted me again. Also tried email the HR but never got a response. After one year I received an email that position was filled. Very unprofessional. Should have the courage to inform the applicant if you are interested or not.

    Interview

    I will put a caveat and say I was not interviewed for the company, but this is a review of the multiple recruiter companies that are working on their behalf. I have been contacted by 9 different recruiters today alone for the same position, and every time I block one another appears. I have even had one recuiter call me, I responded to ask him to send me the details since his English was so heavily accented, I was reading the email within the 5 minutes he sent it, he texted me since I didn't respond the second he sent it, so I emailed him to turn down the opportunity, then he tried to call me to pressure me into the job. This type of occurrence has been happening over at least the past two weeks. I honestly feel harrassed at how incessantly and pushy the recruiters are being, almost verging on being desperate. Even if I was truely interested in a position, their behavior alone would make me run for the hills. I am putting this review specifically on Becton Dickinson since almost every recruiter I spoke to was working for allegedly a different recruiting company. In addition, even multiple recruiters from allegedly the same recruiting company would email me about the same job position for Becton Dickinson on the same day. Unless this is a scam utilizing Becton Dickinson's name, I thought people should be aware of this type of behavior.

    Associate Territory Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BD (Saint Louis, MO (US)).

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn and asked if I could send them my resume because they thought I would be a good fit for the position based on my profile. Sent her my resume and she asked if I was available for a phone interview later that same day which we agreed on a time for. Interviewer called promptly at agreed upon time briefly went over the position and then asked me to walk her through my resume. While I was in the middle of going over my resume I was rudely interrupted and bluntly told that I don’t have the right sales experience to qualify for this job and that she didn’t want to waste my time any longer and quickly got off the phone after mentioning that if something changes she would let me know.

    Truly turned out to be a big waste of time especially considering that I was contacted directly by her because I was a “good fit” based on her search - only to be told over the phone that I didn’t have the type of sales experience they were looking for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BD in January 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was contacted through email and invited to take a one-way automated interview (computer prompts questions and your responses are video recorded). Heard back about a month later (it was during holiday season) and invited to a phone interview. Questions were fairly simple; they asked about particular experiences on my resume, why I was interested in the company, and how I worked in a team. Was given an offer the next day. No in-person interview.
