    Field Service Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wincor Nixdorf in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview took only 15 minutes because I had already worked for this company in Germany. The interview went very smooth. The questions were very easy and I had no difficulties to answer them. The interviewer said that he can not make a decision yet but asked me to call back in the following week. I called back a week later but the decision was not made. So I had to wait another week and called back again. The Manager was not available because he was busy moving from California to Texas. But finally they called me back and I got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Wincor Nixdorf in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    They called my home phone number retrieved from a job site posting. They obviously needed many technicians quickly because the interview went quickly and smoothly. I am well-trained with plenty of experience in the banking industry, but I did not hide my reluctance to enter this career field again.The interviewer, sensing this reluctance, did all he could to encourage me to accept the position. This mass-hiring is something they do often because they systematically cull out many who cannot meet the demands of this job as well as for all the technicians they loose, also because of the demands of this job.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Wincor Nixdorf in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by Randstad Professionals for a first interview. Later contacted by Wincor Nixdorf´s HR for a second interview, more or less, the same as with Randstad (personal background, work experiences, university experience, expectations). very general and for less than 15min. After 1 week, got contacted by Randstad that my "future boss" would like to have a 1:1 Interview with me. More than 2 weeks of wait until I got the final call saying that I will start next week in the company.

    No Willing to Put the Title Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process was went very well. The hiring manager was able to explain the job scope and requirement clearly. From the way I communicate with her I felt that she is a reasonable person and worth to work with her. Wincor Nixdorf interview arrangement was pretty strange. HR took the full lead when come to contact with the recruitment agent. The message communicated to the recruitment agent was there would be 3 interviews before the final hiring. When I was called for the second interview which is conducted by the HR, I was surprised by the HR during the interview that it was an offer meeting not an interview. I should be great that I passed the first interview and got the offer. But when HR review the company willing to offer package and the company benefits I was completely speechless. The package offer to me was lower than my current pay, Wincor Nixdorf has not practice to pay AWS and the HR was not willing to factor in my current AWS while computing the package. The annual package offered was 10% lower than my current package. The company benefits not up to an MNC standard. The working hours is from 8:30 - 6:30 which is 45 hours working per week. This is violated Singapore MOM policy where the guideline is 9 hours per day or 44 hours per week. Wincor Nixdorf's working hour is 9 hour per day multiply by 5 days per week would be 45 hours per week, exceeded the legal working hours. Medical benefit really cannot make it, either company appointed doctor or poly clinic else no reimbursement. $100 dental per year, this rate was 20 years ago standard. Some more only 16 days annual leave flat forever you work there.
