    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at BD.

    Interview

    I had phone interviews with some of the employees at BD and afterwards, I got an offer letter. They mostly asked about my previous experiences working in groups and on projects. I also got asked about my technical skills and why I chose to use certain platforms or programs over others.
