    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Carrier (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2011.

    Interview

    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...

    Lead Commercial Services Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ashburn, VA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Carrier (Ashburn, VA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of the initial interview at a recruiter sponsored hiring conference. After receiving positive feedback from the company I was invited to their office for an onsite interview. This consisted of meeting with the original interviewers as well as the regional manager, field supervisors, and the coordination team. Overall the atmosphere of the office was positive and it appeared as though there was an encouraging work culture. Following the onsite interview, I received a phone interview from the HR manager. A few days later I received an offer for the position via phone call from one of the managers. The salary was not negotiable and as a result I declined the offer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Carrier (Syracuse, NY) in October 2008.

    Interview

    3 interview incl 1 from hr, 1 from tech manger and final on site. Overall, the interview is smooth, hr did not ask any difficult questions. For the final on site interview, a presentation is given, and 3 different technique people asked some engineering questions in a group meeting. I got lucky that they asked a tough question to another candidate, and I think he fell. The question is: why do you want to relocate to NY, this guy said his girl friend is close to here. I don't think they are satisfied.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • 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
