    Sales Entry Level Position Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SAP (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was an On-Campus Recruitment. I submitted my resume and cover letter through my school career website and got a notification about a scheduling for an interview. The interview itself was a bit too brief and informal. The guy, who identified himself to be a contractor (not a HR person) basically said that he wasn't interested in learning more about my qualifications but more about myself, personality and career goals. He said I was already qualified (or else I wouldn't be called in for an interview). Anyways after him asking some general interview questions (tell me about yourself, time you solve hardships, career goals, etc), he briefed me about the rest of the interview process, while reassuring me that I was definitely going to be called in for a second interview. He didn't leave me a business card so I had to ask him for his email from one of the admins at the NYU career center. About two weeks later, I still didn't receive any emails or phone calls until about a two weeks and a half I got a voice message saying that I will not be called in for the second interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer asked me about a time when I contributed back to society (it wasn't too unexpected but I was a bit surprised as I didn't prepare specifically for the question as I was prepping for this interview)   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SAP in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied to the interview on the SAP Website. Most of the job opening they had were for experienced candidates. This profile needed back-end as well as front-end knowledge. Hiring process was as usual, what we have to most of the companies. I got an initial phone screening call in a week after I applied. Once that was cleared, I got a call for technical interview within one more week. In short, it was Initial Phone Screening followed by technical phone interview.

    Associate Technical Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newtown Sq, PA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SAP (Newtown Sq, PA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Phone call from HR, then a 13 minute call with a mgr, then an onsite. Gave a presentation, thought I interviewed well, HR sat at the end of the table and played with her phone the entire time. Absolutely zero follow up, no response to any email. The most unprofessional and disappointing interview and hiring process I have ever experienced. I would not even consider an offer from them simply based on the horribly disrespectful example of unprofessional behavior. Amazing product, relatively good company, but that does not in anyway give them the right to be rude to a candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • If I gave you a "new" tool how would you learn how to use it. The question was delivered in the interview in such a blank way that it was not clearly understood and needed to be explained.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I had submitted my resume online. Got contacted by an HR rep within a week. The whole process took less than 2 weeks. First interview was mostly behavioral - 30 minutes with HR. I was contacted same day for another interview with the hiring manager. Some technical questions during the interview - 30 minutes. A day later I was contacted again to fly out to Newtown Square, PA for a final round interview with a panel. Every person I have been in contact with SAP has been very helpful. They answered all my questions during and after the process.

    Interview

    Very fast interview process: started off with a screening phone call with my recruiter, then a technical phone interview with a mid-level manager, and finally was flown in for an on-HQ interview in Newtown Sq. I had a great experience with all the employees involved. They were very straight forward and really seemed excited to be working at SAP and were excited to hire new employees.
