Conseils à la direction
Malgré la renommée de Baxter et le travail à fournir, j'ai travaillé avec des gens formidables et toujours à l'écoute.
J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 5 jours. J'ai passé un entretien à Baxter (Mississauga, ON) en octobre 2017.
The interview was conducted at their small boardroom together with Senior Manager, Supervisor, and myself. They are very friendly and welcoming. Questions are more likely to determine the applicant's personality and behaviour towards workplace. They gave the applicants time to think and answer the questions with no trace of pressure. They pay attention to the applicant's answers and write down notes for their review. At the end of the interview, they ask if the applicant has any question for them and let the applicant know when they will contact him/her for the results.
