    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Koch Business Solutions (Wichita, KS) in October 2014.

    Interview

    These folks are quite a bit clueless. They fly me all the way to Wichita for a job they say is in Reno. The first thing the hiring manager tells me is that Reno is only got one guy trying to rent office space. The rest of the team asks me questions that have nothing to do with the job description. The next week, I see they are trying to hire a contractor instead of an employee. Don't waste your time.

    Interview Questions

    • the questions were not difficult. They were interviewing me for a data architect and only 1 of 6 people asked me a single technical or data architecture question. I can't imagine how dull it is like to work there.   Answer Question

    IT Service Desk Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Koch Business Solutions (Wichita, KS) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Strictly behavior based questions, spoke with 3 managers and one Sr. help desk. Took a little over 2hrs overall went pretty well. Very simple, they went through a sheet and read behavior based questions off it and spent most of the time writing. They would leave about 5-10 minutes for questions before the next manager arrived. Rinse and repeat.

    Interview Questions

    • Mixed in one technical question: How would you walk me through resolving an issue if I were a customer, my printer wont print anything?   1 Answer

    IT Service Desk Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Koch Business Solutions (Wichita, KS) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I went through college recruiting/outside means. It's important to keep with the recruiters once contacted as they are busy. If you don't contact them, they won't contact you.

    The interview was a two hour interview with multiple supervisors and seniors from different areas of the service desk. Most questions were behavior based, and based on your resume. They will ask a lot about projects that you have completed and organizations that you are involved with.

    The interview revolves around the company's culture, and they questions that they ask will determine if you fit that culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to repeat the way you handled a project multiple times.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't. Coming out of college I was afraid to hurt any chances, looking back I wish that I would have.

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Koch Business Solutions (Wichita, KS) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted two weeks after applying to setup a phone interview with an HR recruiter. Early in week 3 I had my 1st first interview and was immediately scheduled for the 2nd phone interview for later that week. I was contacted again mid week 4 by a travel coordinator to schedule an in person interview in Wichita. During week 5 they flew me to Wichita for an in person interview. Week 6 I was contacted with verbal offer which was 30% below the range discussed during the first interview. I was told that they thought I’d be a good fit but that my skills and experience lead them to believe that my value creation was not enough to justify the range previously discussed. I wish it would have worked out but we were just too far apart.

    Interview Questions

    • I think the most difficult question for me was "Tell me about your self." It was really only difficult because I don't take time to think about myself beyond the confines of my work.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was disappointed the offer was 30% less than the range we talked about during the first interview. It was about the same increase in compensation as I had received at my current employer during the previous year. Once I figured in the state income tax from relocating to KS the offer was brought me less take home pay than I currently have. I feel like we both wasted resources by continuing with interviews 2 and 3 since they didn’t paid attention the range discussed on during the first interview. I would have loved to have said yes if only they would have made it worth my while.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Koch Business Solutions (Wichita, KS) in October 2013.

    Interview

    - Applied through my campus career service. got accepted on a campus interview. a pre-interview dinner was held before the day. on-campus interview was probably the interview I've answered the most questions in a short period of time.it was just one interview(1:1) was asked about 10+ behavioral questions within 30-45 mins but they were just basic behavioral questions. got an email 2 days later to schedule an on-site interview.
    - Another dinner was held before the on-site interview. it is important to attend these dinners because you meet current employees and are able to ask questions about the company or interview process. was supposed to be taken on a tour before my interview but there was no time. had 2 one on one interviews on -site. my interviewers(managers) onsite were really cool. my first went through my entire resume(literally went through it all every single word) and was deriving behavioral questions from what he saw on my resume. so be sure you know everything on your resume.
    My 2nd interviewer went through a booklet containing behavioral questions as they related to the company principles.
    Advice - read about the company before the interview and also browse through Koch's book the science of management

    Interview Questions

    • No technical question. Had to explain in detail the project I had on my resume   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't seem like I was going to gain a lot of experience and I had another offer that better matched my expectations
