Difficult Interview

Applications Engineer Interview

Applications Engineer
Cyberjaya (Malaysia)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at T-Systems International in October 2011.

Interview Details – After submitted CV and got shortlisted, the local unit calls for the first interview, which gives you a head-start actually if you are acceptable for them, to get you ready for the second interview by the Germany counterpart (if the business unit requires). Second interview usually a tougher one if your role is technical. Pay serious attention on it, you know you are good enough if you can pass it.

Interview Question – None specific. Make sure you are well prepared for the technical questions related to your technical role.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The head count/cost centre is managed by local unit, while the hiring was decided by Germany central unit. Hence although the local hiring manager would negotiate for a better deal, ultimate hiring decision is by the Germany unit. Make sure you impress the ultimate decision maker, whether it is local unit, or central unit.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at T-Systems International in May 2009.

Interview Details – 1st interview was with a nice guy from Germany. He was the kind of the Head of the head of the team I applied with. After about 1h of conversation (studies, experiences, why did you do this at that time, etc.), he expressed his content and informed the guy in Switzerland. This one called a few days later to invite me to their offices for another interview. He described their business, asked some questions about my CV, and call his deputy to join us - to hear his opinion afterwards. At the end of the interview he let me see his team and have a small talk with everyone - another way of seeing whether one suits the department or not. A few days later I have been invited by the HR department for a last interview where it was more about HR questions (insurances, pay, etc.), but also a bit about the business in general. I got the job and I had lots of opportunities to advance.

Interview Question – there were no real difficult questions....   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – As I was moving to a new city I negotiated also them to pay for the move and stay until finding an apartment. Chance was that they needed me asap, so they said yes to all. :)
