    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Holcim in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Great interview, very good technical questions, interviewer and myself had the same technical ERP experiences, overall interview was great!
    Company promoted an "open, honest and direct" communication style between senior management, peers, and subordinates, which is what I appreciate most!

    Interview Questions
    • As the company does not pay bonuses, stock options, company cars or a fixed monthly travel allowance (Pauschalspesen), even not at the senior management level I applied for, my most difficult question was: "What is your base salary expectation, considering no bonus, no stock options ....."
      My expectation appeared to be in the range, as I got the next interview within 3 days notice. My salary expectation was never questioned in any of the following meetings!
