Senior SAP Systems Analyst Interview

Senior SAP Systems Analyst
Orlando, FL

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CHEP in December 2013.

Interview Details – 1) HR Junior Recruiter call to talk about general stuff, salary expectations, etc.
2) Then he scheduled a call with Hiring Managers who said they would do a Video call like Skype
3) On the day of the call I was all Suited up but nobody called and I waited and waited and then emailed the Junior recruiter who emailed me back that they are busy in a extended meeting and need to reschedule.
4) Telecon Meeting was rescheduled and went on for over an hour - very good meeting - the hiring managers were very detailed in giving a historical background and organizational composition, info, job details, etc.
5) Then another telecon meeting was scheduled with the Director and other directors from other areas - went very well - about 45 minutes or longer.
6) Then did not hear from HR - sent a follow-up email and heard from a senior recruiter who said he is working on offer
7) Email offer received;
8) Negotiated via phone and emails and final offer received with start date.

Interview Question – Interviews were pretty much on experience and personality based focusing on teamwork and interaction in different situations. The people interviewing were nice and made me feel comfortable.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I accepted the offer initially but was unable to join since I had a family emergency 3 days before joining and ended up travelling internationally for more than a month and hence had to decline the offer after accepting. I had done a lot of research on housing, schools, commute time, had talked to apartments, etc.

Transportation Analyst Interview

Transportation Analyst
Orlando, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at CHEP in April 2011.

Interview Details – Hired on spot and prior to interview because managers pick their candidates beforehand. Managers also play favorites so I knew I needed to know someone within to even be considered. I've seen many qualified people not get into role because of what they appear like as opposed to what they can do. Manager also asked me my religion during the process and I wish I had that on tape.

Interview Question – Why is a man hole round?   View Answer
