The Interview

Have you been invited to an interview, telephone interview or Assessment Center? Congratulations – that means you have got past the first big hurdle. If a member of our Recruiting team invites you to an interview or Assessment Center, you are one of the applicants whose skills and qualifications best fit the requirements profile for the job. The aim of interviews and Assessment Centers is for us to get to know each other.

Interviewing at Bayer

We want to find out whether you will fit into the team and Bayer generally. We are interested in your expertise, experience and the practical, intercultural, social and methodological skills you have gained so far. We are also keen to know about any voluntary work you do and how your career, studies or leisure activities have contributed to your knowledge, experience and skillset. No doubt you considered many of these aspects when you were preparing your application.

Now is your opportunity to tell us more about them.

We will also discuss the vacancy with you in more detail, along with your prospects at Bayer. After the interview or Assessment Center, we will let you know our decision as soon as possible.

A tip from the Bayer HR team

Before your interview, you should review the skills and experience you can bring to the job and consider how they might set you apart from other candidates. Can you give specific examples of how and where you acquired your skills and experience? Did any particular experience drive your development? Sometimes personal defeats can generate new ideas or be a source of motivation.

Good preparation also means ensuring you know how to get to the interview and how long the journey will take. You should therefore plan plenty of time for your journey so you are relaxed for the interview.
