Principal Engineer Interview

Principal Engineer
Round Lake, IL (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 7 months - interviewed at Baxter in November 2013.

Interview Details Very long recruiting process. HR are very slow and opaque. The on-site interview was relaxed and everyone very polite and engaged. I applied online in May 2013, received first call in September, interviewed on site in November. The job was put "on hold indefinitely" in December 2013.

Interview Question – No difficult question. Getting to an on-site interview is difficult.   Answer Question

Principal Engineer Interview

Principal Engineer
Round Lake, IL (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Baxter in October 2009.

Interview Details Disorganized for HR processes but technical interviews were very good. Mostly looking for right cultural fit within the organization or the specific team doing the hiring. Seems like the process to get the position approved and selected was really cumbersome though - even though the hiring manager indicated I had done well, it still took a few week s to get everything worked out.

Interview Question – Just general behavioral questions nothing really stood out as difficult. Although because it is a very diverse company be prepared for different accents in phone interviews which can be tough.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Vacation is pretty limited - if you don't negotiate some your going to lose it. Pay and bonuses are pretty structured so not a whole lot room there
