The next day consisted of breakfast, plant tour, two behavioral interviews, and lunch.
Interview Question – How do you know when someone trusts you? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 months - interviewed at SGL Carbon in June 2012.
Interview Details – There was no Human Resource Manager but the Finance Head was handling the HR Dept. The call was professional however in practicality it was extremely disorganized. There was no sense of responsibility and acknowledgement towards the candidates present for the interview. More importantly the Documentation took 2 weeks to be completed and had to be given a push for , everyday. Salary negotiations were done/handled in the most unprofessional manner.
Negotiation Details –
Negotiations were not satisfactory. It was more like a negotiation that takes place in the fish market. Cutting down on the basics and HRA & other possible aspects and giving a hike in a bonus amount which has a clause of entitlement after 9 months.
A little inconsiderate, if the Managing Directors have decided onto an aspect the Finance Department cuts it down furthermore to show cost cutting/ savings to justify the salary they are getting.
Hence definitely a little too unprofessional when it comes to monetary aspects.
