    Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newtown Square, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newtown Square, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at SAP in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Once they decide to interview you, you can expect the world's fastest interview process. This is a good thing - there is only one interview (not 2, 3, 4, etc) and they make an offer in about 3 days. Those are the good parts.

    The problem is they expect an answer to their offer in about 3 days as well. If you're shopping around for jobs, you better have SAP as your number one choice because they do not appreciate having to wait to hear from you about their offer.

    Bring your "A" game to the interview, it is technical and stressful. You will be asked questions concerning anything from the "high level" concepts to the most minor detail. You will be on the board, explaining it to 3-4 interviews who will happily pick it apart.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you handle stress? What would you do if a customer started to scream at you?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation that I know of, but the package is decent enough that you may not feel a need to negotiate.

I was given a badge and escorted to a small room where I was interviewed by a current co-op employee and her technical advisor. I was asked the typical questions such as "what are your strengths?" and so on. Overall it was a good experience. It wasn't high-stress at all, and the building was beautiful.

    Associate Consultant - Graduate Consultant Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newtown Square, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Newtown Square, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SAP in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied on SAP website. With in 2 weeks a recruiter emailed me to schedule a phone interview.

    First Interview - Phone with HR Recruiter
    Went through my resume. Asked about techinical skill sets. I expressed my interest on the Functional position, Miss.HR told me the functional candidates were "probably set". She was really nice and forwarded me to schedule a phone interview with a technical manager.

    Second Interview - Phone with Manager
    Went through my technical experiences quickly, type of database and softwares that I'm familiar with etc. (Manager was really nice, told me "let me know if you're guessing, but don't pretend to know what you don't." In the end he suggested me to read a book called "Emotional Intelligence for Project Managers" but skip the first 3 chapters.)

    Technical questions such as, if you have a column of millions or records but only 5 of them are duplicates, is it low cardinality or high cardinality (I guessed this one)
    Behavioral questions such as, if you caught your boss napping, what do you do? (how do you answer this?)

    In the end he put me through to the final on-site interview on the following Friday(4/27). During that weekend I finished an online personality test.

    Third Interview - On-site Panel (2:1)
    Started with a 10-min presentation with interactive Q/A. After that went through resume more, very specific on project experience, programming/database skill, understanding of what your current job does and if you had any experience using SAP products etc. One of the managers spent a good 10 minutes explaining the functional and technical spectrum and asked me which side do I have more preference on. Also recommended to add my foreign language skills to the resume.

    ------
    This interview went extremly well, I thought I had it in the bag. HR told me afterwards that results would be out the following Wednesday. Although it didn't come through until 2 weeks later. I did not have an offer, becasue, according to the email I received yesterday, the Graduate Consultant Program will be "delayed a few months" and further discussion on the job will be held until then.

    Did anybody outhere receive the same outcome? I am curious.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
