The Interview

Once you have submitted your online application, you’ve completed the first step toward an exciting new career at Bayer. But what happens next? What can you expect from Bayer’s interviewing process? The important information and practical tips below will help you make the most of your interview.

Interviewing at Bayer

    • Once we receive your application, including relevant  references, our recruitment team will consult the relevant hiring department to make a preliminary selection among the submitted applications.
    • Candidates with skills and qualifications most closely aligned with the position requirements will be contacted directly by the recruitment team and invited to participate in an interview. Interviews may be conducted by phone, in person, or as part of a full day assessment center, depending on the job in question.


  • The main purpose of the interview or assessment center is for you and Bayer to get to know each other. We will introduce the company, describe what we do, and talk about the position for which you are interviewing in greater detail, including development opportunities. In turn, you will help us understand the level of experience you will bring to the position, your interest in our company, and your passion for your work.
  • We will inform you of our decision as quickly as possible following our conversation.

A Hint from the Bayer HR Team

Our goal is to learn about you as an employee and as a person, and to determine if we can work well together. We kindly request that you arrive on time and be prepared for our conversation so we can all enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in the interview. Think about all your skills and experiences that qualify you for the position in question, and be ready to talk about how you achieved these throughout your academic, professional, and personal life.


If we decide to make you an offer, you will be contacted to discuss and sign an employment contract. We look forward to welcoming you at Bayer!

Recruitment Agencies 

At Bayer UK we have a well established list of preferred suppliers and there are no plans to review these arrangements at present.

Please Note: Speculative enquires from non preferred suppliers directly to the business are not welcome and will be taken into account when reviewing the preferred supplier arrangements. CV's will only be accepted by following our process - this will be with prior arrangement with the Talent Acquisition Team who will grant access to our recruitment portal. In the event of speculative CV's being sent directly to the business,  or the Talent Acquisition Team, agency ownership of the candidate will not be accepted.

Please respect how we choose to work. Thank you for your co-operation.
