    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Vanderlande Industries in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Lengthy. Vanderlande is not looking for industry veterans like some of their competition, but industrial automation knowledge is a big plus. These days it's clearly not about what you know, but what you will contribute to the team. Managers and peers are looking to see how you would mesh with the collective group.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Vanderlande Industries.

    Interview Details

    They interview a LOT of people but hire about 1 in 200. Not many people are willing to work for such low pay. People seem difficult to get along with and why has nobody been there for more than a few months?

    Pay was crap and people are hard to get a long with. Company seems to be way to heavy with management.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marietta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marietta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Vanderlande Industries in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Long, drawn out, inexperience people asking questions that have nothing to do with what your job will be. They have no idea what to ask or how to behave because they have NEVER interviewed anybody before. Everybody I interviewed with said they did not know why they were interviewing me because they did not have anything to do with the people that were hired for my position. Another person told me he had interviewed 10 people and that none of the people that anybody recommended ever got hired. Most managers seem very disgruntled.

    Negotiation Details
    They do not negotiate. They make you a WAY low offer and then tell you because you do not have any experience. The funny part is that everybody there I talked to had only been there for a few months (not years) and they did not. They say they will let you try different jobs to see where you fit best but they will not let you change jobs until you have been there for at least a year!. All double talk, confusion and basically fumbling.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Vanderlande Industries in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was somewhat awkward and took a long time. I went through 4-5 interviews and the final was with the president. His office was extremely hot so if you're wearing a suite you will sweat a lot. The president will not have very good questions and will likely be unprepared as your possible final interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Explain how sales in your current industry relates to selling in the conveyor industry.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiations were pretty easy and I got most everything I wanted. If there is training involved for you to be successful in this new position get everything in writing. Get the expectations for each step 1-3 months,4-6 months all the up to a year. The president operates and makes decisions on a day to day basis so very knee jerk and reactionary. You need to have it all in writing for your review process or he will change the criteria.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Vanderlande Industries in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Met current employee at campus recruitment event. Was contacted 5-6 months later and asked to take and submit a pre-screen test of technical aptitude. After passing that I was invited for an on-site interview. Two weeks later I received an offer of employment.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    The initial offer was lower than expected. I inquired why it was so much lower than the numbers presented by campus Career Services and the response was that those numbers are skewed by reporting bias and that the offer was firm.

    Maintenance Manager At An Airport Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Vanderlande Industries in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter that presented me to Vanderlande. The recruiter felt that I had all the basic qualifications for the job, plus an inside knowledge of the actual industry that Vanderlande was serving. Apparently Vanderlande is very technical, wanting a mechanic that also had alot of management experience. I don't know where they'd find a candidate like that. Usually a blue-collar mechanic stays a mechanic, or a manager might not know how to get down and dirty and actually fix the problem with tools. But that's the problem with most companies now they want the "prince charming/knight on a white horse" of job candidates.
