Consultant Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SAP.

Interview Details – I believe I first had an over-the-phone interview, followed by an on-site interview near Dallas, TX. That single day interview was comprised of 2 separate interviews, each 30-45 minutes. The objective each time was to assess basic competencies and skills, but mainly to see if you would a great fit with the company. One interviewer turned out to be my first boss.

Interview Question – The most difficult question for me was explaining anything I knew about SAP or the industry, really. My knowledge of both was very lacking.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I recall two levels of salary offers: lower salary for new/recent grads, and a higher salary for those with some work experience. I was the former, couldn't really negotiate there.

SAP Sales Academy Program Interview

SAP Sales Academy Program

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SAP in February 2014.

Interview Details – Filled out online application and completed personality questionnaire. Was e-mailed a week later saying they would like to schedule a phone interview. They were very unorganized with the scheduling, and got back to me a week later for the phone interview. Interview was very standard, the interviewer did not review my information prior to calling me and tried to ask me "trick questions" like "Here at SAP we enjoy doing community service. Name an example of a time you did community service" - When I come from a non-profit background.

I thought the phone interview went smoothly, sent a thank you letter and hand-written note. Was NEVER contacted back. No rejection notice, no phone call etc. I tried calling and e-mailing to get in touch with HR and my interviewer, no response.

Might be because their company is in a bit of shambles right now. They also took the postings down from their website.

Interview Question – Name a time when you faced conflict with co-workers and how did you resolve it.   View Answer

Presales Graduate Academy Interview

Presales Graduate Academy
Newtown Square, PA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SAP in April 2012.

Interview Details – Met up with a recruiter at a job fair. She had my formally apply and asked about my interests. Then she set up a call with an HR person who asked easy questions and verified information. Once I moved on, I had a phone interview with the hiring manager who asked harder questions about my background, why technology, why sales, etc-- but nothing too hard.

Then I came in for a super day and had 5 different interviews but they were all about fit and background. Finally we had to do a 15 minute presentation using only 5 slides on our favorite class.

Interview Question – The Presentation was the most difficult.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. 55k base with 15% bonus potential.

Developer Interview

Developer

Interviewed at SAP

Interview Details – The HR person was quite detail-oriented. The interview itself was quite smooth. The hiring manager was respectful, and asked me more "soft skills" questions than direct, technical questions. I was asked to meet some of the senior team members. I thought they were trying to gauge what kind of a teammate I would be, rather than whether I had the exact technical skillset.

Interview Question – Why did you leave your current employer? Why now?   View Answer
