Sales Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation (Chicago, IL) in August 2010.

Interview

A bit like being interviewed as though your are right out of college. Was asked about a famous person I admire. Good questions and good pace of interview asked to expand on answers and give examples. When asked what challenges the company faced, I hit a little too hard knowing their products a little too well. The answer was a little too defensive and I think I came off as sounding like a know it all and not a company guy. I was told the position was elminated, not that I was rejected. Don't know if that is true, but that is what I was told.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation in October 2010.

    Interview

    I interviewed first with a college recruiter and was notified about a month later that I had made it to their final "Round Robin" set of interviews at the headquarters in Milwaukee, WI. It was a 2 day interview process, with the first day consisting of information sessions and the 2nd day consisting of 3 interviews and a presentation. The questions were very easy and besides the "situational" interview, were all aimed at just getting a feel of the candidate's personality.
