    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at TMK.

    Interview Details

    - Phone interview with HR representative: Asked me about my background and behavioral based questions. Very friendly and not a stressful interview. Scheduled an in person interview for the next day.
    - In-person interview with HR representative for about an hour: very natural and casual. He provided lot of insight about the hiring manager and gave positive feedback on how I would be a great fit.
    - In-person interview with Hiring Manager for about an hour & a half: Made no eye contact and did not shake my hand, and seemed generally grumpy and negative. He asked me to sell him an item in the room (I felt I did really well/thought outside the box) but he only gave negative feedback and a poor example of how to sell me the item, then talked up how he just fired a bunch of people, etc. I was pretty disappointed with his behavior but none the less I still got an invite to complete the PSP exam and was told they wanted to bring me in to meet the director.
    - Exam on line 2 days later for about 4 hours: Had four sections covering psychological questions, attitude, math and English comprehension.
    - Never heard back after the exam.

    Interview Details

    Two representatives came to my school for an information session and then announced that they were having interviews the next day! (Lol, I am not kidding.) So the 10 of us in the room signed up for interview slots and the next day we all got to interview. My interview went well, I believe.

    BE Prepared for A Tough Interview/Hiring Process Only to BE Desperate to Leave Within the First Year Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at TMK.

    Interview Details

    Be prepared to have multiple interviews; HR is the toughest and I don't understand why since they are not the hiring managers, so what do they know? If you are selected to receive an offer then be prepared to have a drug test (both hair and urine), go through a 3 hour PSP exam on psychological questions, attitude, math and English comprehension. They will also run a background and credit check. When you finally get on board reality will set in. I was placed in finance and let me tell you, after just a few months I couldn't wait to leave this company!!

    Interview Questions
    • HR will drill you down, I guess that they know that Finance in TMK-IPSCO is a sweatshop (please read reviews) and they try to see if you are tough enough to withstand their bosses!   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    You can negotiate salary, however, there is no sign-on bonus and annual target bonus is nonnegotiatble.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at TMK in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's career center and got a call back late for an in-campus interview. It was pretty laid-back and informal. I was the last person being interviewed for the day and the guy interviewing me seemed tired and eager to go home. Got a call back a few months later telling me I was going to be sent an offer very soon and then I just never heard back again.

    Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TMK in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Handed in resume to the company during a university career fair. After two months, I received a phone call from the human resource department and had a phone interview (about 30 minutes). It was mainly a behavioral interview. About one week later, I was invited for an on-site interview. The onsite interview was technical in nature, and while there were only two interviewers initially, by the end, four people were interviewing me at once. The people were quite friendly and showed me around their office. I was later (1 week) invited to a facility tour which I was not able to make. I have not heard from them since.
