Palo Alto, CA

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at SAP in July 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online, went through phone screening, scheduled for interview, then rescheduled twice before being cancelled last minute due to 'change in focus'.

Same application process for a different position, made it to on-site interview, position cancelled last minute due to 'change in budgeting'.

Interview Question – None. Interview was pretty straightforward.   Answer Question

Intern
Palo Alto, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SAP in October 2012.

Interview Details – The whole process is very long. I applied through the company website and a month later, the HR contacted me for a phone interview. The next week I had a phone interview and then, it got scheduled another interview with the VP. The interview went very well, but until now I guess they have not selected anyone for that position. It is sad, because i haven't heard anything back from the HR, even after asking for feedback.

Interview Question – Why do you think you are the perfect fit for this position?   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern
Newtown Square, PA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at SAP in December 2011.

Interview Details – I applied for a variety of positions online and got denied repeatedly (on a positive note, when SAP is done with you, they email you and tell you they're pursuing other candidates for a job - so you know when to move on).

Emailed University Recruiter. University Recruiter said to take a look at an spring internship (I had been looking for a full time position before that point). Phone interview next day, in person interview a couple days after, offer day after that.

Phone interview was fairly easy. I had more experience than the average candidate so this was largely experience review instead of behavioral. A couple behavioral questions were asked (e.g. "Why are you interested in working at SAP?" and it went so well I was told to expect a follow up for in person immediately.

Interview onsite was pleasant. Fantastic campus. Interviewed with my boss and boss' boss. Went over a lot of organizational structure. Here is where I got the behavioral questions (3 biggest strengths/weaknesses, etc.) and then we spoke about what the job was entailed. Thanked them, expressed my interest.

Called that night by recruiter, told to expect offer letter soon, spoke start dates, etc.... offer letter via email next day.

Interview Question – Given your ERP experience, what would you say is the most valuable thing you have learned about SAP?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It's an internship. Hours were negotiatble- I wasn't able to make schedule adjustments because the internship was posted so late (they understood registration was done).

Pay is non-negotiable for interns. Based on your area and your class year (sophomore, junior, senior, etc.) you will get fixed hourly pay.

SAP has a terrible concept of headcount which makes trying to get an internship/jiob there as a student frustrating. Expect things to be last minute.
