    Financial Systems Manager Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at DENTSPLY International in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed on the phone to determine whether I met the baut fiesic qualifications of the job.

    After the phone interview, I was invited to come in for a personal interview. I was scheduled to interview with about five people. After the first person interviewed me, I went to lunch with the hiring manager. After lunch, the hiring manager informed me that the other 3 people were not available to interview me, and the interview was effectively over.

    I found out later from the recruiter that the first interviewer decided I wasn't a good candidate based on the fact that I left a previous position less than a year after starting it.

    Anyways I considered it impolite to terminate the interview before the schedule was completed.

    This organization is also a business formal environment, requiring shirt and tie. I wear a suit to an interview, but would hate to wear a tie every day. Something you may want to consider.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at DENTSPLY International in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews, the first with a recruiter and the second one with the recruiter and a manager. The people were informative as far as telling me about the job and the expectations. I wasn't shown the area that I would be working in which would have helped me understand the job better. It was a good process.

    General Manager Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at DENTSPLY International in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very professional and organized, and all four interviewers were courteous and personable. The organization is quite decentralized with many subsidiaries, which helps to promote entrepreneurial spirit, and formal company orientation and job training for new management should be very helpful in the on-boarding process.

    Advice: Employer favors a promote-from-within practice, so for higher level positions, direct industry experience is a major plus.

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DENTSPLY International in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    There is an online assessment and also a phone assessment in regards to determining your personality type. There will be a few phone interviews and a couple in person interviews. There's also a ride along day with an existing rep. It's a thorough process so that they select candidates that are really commited to the job.

    Negotiation Details
    Yes, a little. They have a determined range that they can offer for salary, but you may be able to get an extra $5k if your experience warrants it.

    Territory Manager Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at DENTSPLY International in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Not a quick decision on Dentsply's part. Making sure of a good hire. Ask lots of STAR-type questions, looking at critical thinking, how different scenarios would be approached. Very "rah-rah" in culture, but upper-management still rules. Newer philosophy appearing now as 2011 begins, so we'll see. Data driven, relationship based.

    Interview Questions
    • What would you do if you found out the #1 rep in the company was lying and cheating his/her way to the top? If you had a choice, would it be report it or let it slide?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Leverage your past experience. Each successive "title" means more base money, so Territory Manager pays about $6K more than Territory Representative. Other than that, they sit tight on what's offered. By all means, try!
