I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Carrier (Indianapolis, IN) in April 2015.
After applying, I was contacted by an HR Associate and scheduled a telephone interview. Waited for her call at the scheduled time and I did not hear from her. I called her phone at work and cell phone and left a message. The next day, she explained that she got pulled into a meeting and could not make the scheduled call. (Really? How inconsiderate) Finally, at the second scheduled interview, she called me late. I thought everything went well and she was easy to talk to. She told me that she would pass my info onto her hiring manager and in a few days, she'd call me back. Never heard from her again. I left a voicemail and sent an email asking if I was still being considered a candidate. I am surprised at how unprofessional this company has handled this after telling me how wonderful her company is.

I was invited to take part in an on-campus interview with two carrier sales engineers. The first was quite pleasant and asked very pertinent and intelligent questions. The second asked harder questions. I took an extra second to think about the hardest one he asked and I could almost see the judgement in his eyes. I am sure this is the reason I did not get the job.
- Tell me about a time you had to do something you thought was impossible but then you figured out a way to do it? Answer Question

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Carrier (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2011.
Everything I prepped myself for I ended up throwing out the window and a total waste of time. I guess that's what I get for reading self-help books. Should have spent far more time researching the company and what it stands for. In particular, what it expects from it's sales engineers on a day-by-day basis. For example, how would you spend a typical hour of a day spent calling on a contractor...
- How would you handle a disgruntled customer that a previous salesperson wronged and now has a sour taste in their mouth? Answer Question

The process was a bit rough. This was mostly due to the HR person being in CT and the job and interviews being in NC. They seemed to lack any coordination between the two and would propose a date then have to change it due to conflicts. Once the interview day came, things went much better. It was well planned out with times to meet and the managers and people the position would be in typical contact with. Everyone was very warm and did not as trivial interview questions like "Where do want your career to be in 5 years?" All the questions were applicable to work style, skill set, and informing me how the company and groups operated to ensure I was a good fit.
- There no difficult or unexpected questions. They did as technical questions about Windchill and other products I claimed knowledge of. However, no were "stumper" or trivia questions. There were well thought out serious questions to ensure my knowledge and thought process would fit in the company. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Carrier (Vāranāsi (India)) in October 2012.
It was a campus recruitment process. There was a small written test (30 questions) followed by a case study GD. Shortlisted candidates were called for interview. Final selections were all random candidates based on random answers to random HR questions.
