Interview Details – I sent my resume to Specialisterne and was selected for an interview in March 2014.

After that, I had a short 30 minutes interview for some basic questions and I was selected for an internship on the 4 of April.

CRM Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at SAP in October 2010.
Interview Details – A recruiter found me on Monster and proposed a very interesting role initially. I went to an interview which happens to be potentially the first and last interview to hire. I responded to the first french greeting in french and the rest of the conversation continued in french. The recruiters didn't seem all that genuinely interested perhaps because of my age since everyone else in the company is 10 years older by average as I later found out. They seemed to spend the entire time trying to find reasons why I'm not a good fit instead of trying to assess my skills. A different recruiter then proposed a different position in the same location. I went in for a group written exam. I went into a classroom like setting with about 20 other people and wrote a very generic C/Java/SQL/XML moderate-easy exam. I came in another day after a one hour sleep after a red-eye flight. I met two managers and one architect that were a bit more serious and pleasant this time. They asked some generic behavioural question and easy technology and programming language questions.
Interview Question – Explain the MVC model Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Before they gave their conclusion, I was about to accept another offer I was reasonably happy with. Just for options, I called SAP to say they have one day to respond (assuming that they most likely won't). They pled to have 2 days or something and actually came back with a much stronger offer than the other company. I struggled a lot to decide and ended up taking SAP. I haven't even negotiated since it was my first big company full time job and I didn't know it was so common and risk-free to negotiate and their offer was so much stronger already but I think I should have been able to easily ask for 5k more.
Client Partner Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at SAP in March 2011.
Interview Details – A mix of phone and in-person interviews (total of 12) over a 2 month period. I was flown to two out of country interviews to meet with regional executives. The same recruiter followed me throughout the entire process which is extremely helpful and reassuring. Everyone I met was very professional and straighforward - transparency seems to be a common thread across the corporate culture.
The calibre of the executives I met as well the scope and reach of the organization was very impressive. I was actually quite shocked how "no-frills" their approach was. Was expecting much more "glam" and "courting" but it was much more down to earth, real and "this is who we are and our brand is not all about marketing". I was also struck by how young everyone was (compared to other organizations). Most top notch organizations in IT have a predominantly male and gray-haired team - the executives I met were all under 50 and some as young as late 30s. This showed me that they value young talent and are willing to give them greater responsibilities rather than opt for the traditional tenure advancement that some organizations favor.
It is definitely a company I hope to work for one day. The interview process was respectful, swift and straightfoward (even though it was 12 interviews, the lapse of time between each was very short and I received feedback from my recruiter regularly after each interview. Communication remained open at all times and nothing was vague - all questions were allowed and when someone didn't know the answer they would get informed and get back to you asap. Overall, you felt a high sense of collaboration and professionalism.

Reason for Declining – Due to legal clauses hindering my coverage of certain clients, I was unable to accept the offer unfortunately. SAP has a corporate policy of not getting involved with legal issues related to employees (non-compete etc) so I was on my own and didn't want to take the risk.
