Field Service Engineer Interview

Field Service Engineer
Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Biomerieux USA in June 2013.

Interview Details – I interviewed for a field service position working on lab equipment. They really weren't that concerned with technical ability, but more customer service and behavior patterning type questions. There was a strange self-important French manager in the interview who was really a jerk. The job was work from home and it sounded like they keep you on the road non-stop. They did offer a pension plan and company car, but the pay was not enough to sell me.

Interview Question – They said you arrive at a location with broken equipment and the customer is pissed. The spare they provide in the repair kit you have is faulty, so you are unable to fix the equipment during your visit. The customer is furious, loosing money, and demanding to speak to your manager. What do you do?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The pay was not adequate for my experience and qualifications.
