I provided college transcripts & past job history info during the face-to-face interview & also discussed job requirements as well as personal family info & issues. The next interview session was with the two most senior techs in the branch who gave specific job details & responsibilities.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Diebold.

    Interview Details

    Multiple interviewers, with multiple rounds. Well thought out, though not all interviewers were prepared, or experienced with candidate interview Dos and don'ts. Individual sessions were more effective than panel sessions. Phone interviews were fine, Reimbursement for travel was a bit complicated and directions were not clear. Hotel for candidates from out of town was less than ideal.

    Principal Business Continuity Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Canton, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Canton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Diebold in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Short phone interview with an HR person, then an online personality and financial math test, then a short on-site interview, with 4 people (1 HR person (dfferent from one that phone interviewed), 1 hiring exec, and 2 peers, plus a senior level HR person called me at home right before the on-site interview. 1 of the peers was completely non-interested in interviewing me, so I ended up back in HR sitting in the lobby for awhile. Good/standard questions were asked by the 3 that were interested in interviewing me, but 2 didn't listen well to my answers (as evidenced by the offer they later made me). An HR manager called me a few days later to verbally say they wanted to make an offer and asked what terms I wanted, we discussed pay, vacation...he was supposed to send me benefits info that day but I never got anything. He wanted me to specifically outline what I would take for pay/vacation combos so I did. The next day a different guy from HR called me, acted like I never had the conversation the day prior and offered me less then we discussed. Never sent me an offer letter, just read it to me over the phone, with no benefit info ever provided. Said he would go talk to the hiring manager then I never heard from them again. Later that night I did alot of research on the internet about this company - strongly suggest any applicants do the same - you will learn alot. Today I logged into their HR system, and several fields in my online profile were deleted including level I wanted and minimum pay (and they weren't deleted by me), and the job was marked offer rescinded.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were diffifcult or unexpected - the standard what are your strengths, weaknesses, tell me about a time that you had to work with a difficult issue, etc.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined their initial low over the phone offer, the HR person said he would check with the Exec then I never heard from them again.
