I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at WABCO (Charleston, SC) in January 2014.
Interview process was very chaotic, unorganized, and unprofessional. I didn't hear back on an interview for over a month after submittal of my resume. The company then insisted on a same day interview as the first phone call request. The company then cancelled and changed the interview time after I attempted to accommodate a last minute interview. This diminished my interest some in the company. I did not feel this is not a respectful way to treat a prospective employee. I tried to overlook it and interviewed anyway. The hiring manager actually said bad things about the previous employees that held the position I was interviewing for. I feel it is very unprofessional to speak badly of former employees or managers in the interview process. Beware of Charleston location! There are red flags everywhere!
- None of the questions were difficult. All were "common" interview questions (tell me about yourself, where do you see yourself in 5 years, strengths, weaknesses, etc) Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days – interviewed at WABCO.
Generally a four step process. You generally start when you get a phone call to arrange an interview. Very understanding and patient Proj Manager will ask you the general/personal question plus some technical ( nothing hard - Basic c++ and oops concepts). There is a aptitude which anyone who is familiar with RS agarwal should crack easily. The tech interview was a cake walk brush up on your basics. The HR round is basically giving you an idea of the policies and making sure you are comfortable. You might be required to go through a psychometric test

(Translated from English)
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at WABCO (Hannover (Germany)) in August 2011.
Ich wurde aufgrund meiner Vorerfahrungen angesprochen. Es gab ein Telefon-Interview mit dem Personal-Manager und dem direkten Vorgesetzten. 1 Woche später wurde ich eingeladen und hatte ein weiteres Gespräch mit dem Personal-Manager, dem direkten Vorgesetzten und dem Chef eine Etage höher. Nach wieder einer Woche war ich in der Firma und hatte eine Videokonferenzschaltung mit dem Chef auf Unternehmensebene und danach mit dem Marketing-Chef. Während aller Gespräche war der Ton sehr höflich und freundlich.
I got contacted based on my former experiences. I had one phone interview which was with HR and the direct dotted line leader. 1 week later, I was invited and had another discussion with HR, direct dotted line leader and the boss one level higher. Another week later I came to the company and had a Video conference call with the Business Enterprise leader and after that with the marketing leader. During all discussions, there was a very polite and friendly atmosphere.
- Logische Fragen, zum Beispiel, wie viel von diesem Produkt verkaufen wir. Dann kannst du selbst Fragen stellen und dir die Antwort selbst aufbauen. Ich denke, das dient dazu zu zeigen, wie gut man Probleme lösen und logisch denken kann. Logical questions like how many of this product do we sell. Then you are allowed to ask questions and build your way to the answer. I guess this is to show how good you can solve problems and how is your logical thinking. Answer Question
Fair und transparent.
