    Field Sales/Demo Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dyson.

    Interview Details

    The managers all live in a different state so the meeting is usually in a hotel or restaurant. We talked for quite a while going over everything Dyson brings to the table. Bring your A game. My hiring manager was extremely intelligent and always looked you in the eyes. It could be nerve wrecking but not if you go in confident in yourself.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dyson in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Telephone interview first. Then emailed a document for review. The document required a technical report, completing questions and design suggestions.

    Very polite telephone manner. Spoke to engineering manager.

    After submitting the technical report (which was reviewed by a PhD for final advise on layout and topic content) all contact from engineering manager and also HR was stopped.

    No response to submission. No response to further email or phone calls.

    Very strange indeed.

    I have spoken to a friend who had the same situation of being ignored after a positive telephone interview.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dyson in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the next day I was contacted via phone by a recruiter. She asked basic questions (why I was interested), and said she would contact me to schedule a phone interview. A couple days later I had the phone interview with the recruiter. It lasted about 30 minutes, and she asked pretty general questions and went over my resume. It went really well overall. I think I might have set my salary requirement too high for what they wanted to pay. She said she would let me know either way in a couple of weeks. I followed up several times, but she never gave an answer.
