Sales Engineer Interview

Sales Engineer
Houston, TX

The process took a day - interviewed at Johnson Controls in October 2010.

Interview Details – Started with informational session on campus. Signed up for interview at that time. Real laid-back 1:1 interview. Had me switch rooms on the fly (maybe an interview tactic?. Had a few "tell me about yourself" basic background questions at first, but settled down and just conversed after that. Interviewer was real nice, had family from same town as me so that helped. Told me what position he thought I would best be suited for (it was the position I was interviewing for). Said he would recommend I get called back, still waiting to hear back two weeks later. Interviewing 80+ on campus, so I'm sure it's taking some time.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a group conflict. What happened, and how did you deal with it? What was the outcome?   Answer Question
