    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jakarta (Indonesia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Jakarta (Indonesia)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    At least 3 interviews with 3 different "people manager", one of them is the user. Not sure at what the interviewers are evaluating, but I believe they are looking for a person whose appearance, attitude, background is suitable for the role. For sales role they do not expect you to have a product knowledge on IBM products although that would be useful. Interview timings could be critical since the interviewing managers are most of the time in sales calls or client meetings, so be prepared for rescheduling or change of venue.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at IBM (Jakarta (Indonesia)) in April 2009.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview by the IBM GBS country manager. He then interviewed me by himself and one of the trusted solution architect. Due to urgent needs, the recruitment process were simplified into two interview sessions in 3 days. The second inteview was with HR country manager and there was where the negotiation happened.

    Interview Questions

    • I am a person with dissabilities. So the most difficult question for me was "Since you have a big challenge with your dissabilities, how do you think our customers will value you. And what will our customers think about IBM?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation came after the technical interview on different session and interviewer. The offer was too low by I had no income at the time so I took it. The interviewer said that I can easily catchup my carreer later due to my experience. Unfortunately, even I've been trying hard, it has not happened.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at IBM (Jakarta (Indonesia)) in April 2007.

    Interview

    I applied to IBM through job advertising in newspaper, then HR people invited me to attend selection processes in Jakarta. First I have the test which consisted ofI IPAT and writing essay in english. After passing these steps the HR people invited me for interview. During 1st day interview, I have 4 different managers as the interviewers. Basically they asked me about why choose IBM, how your background fit with our company, what do you see yourself in 5 years, how long will you plan to stay at IBM, what is your specific interest from various business line in IBM. There is also one manager who gave me article about technology concepts and then he gave me 10 minutes to prepare for presentation. The final interview is with Country Manager Services, it is more like are you ready to work overtime, are you ready to learn a lot of things in short timeframe, tell me about yourself. Last is negotiation process however since I joined as fresh graduate then IBM has already had standard package for me.
