    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CAE.

    Interview

    Basic questions about background and what the job entails. There was a phone call to discuss initial background, than an in-person interview with the Sales Director and an Account Executive. Later on there was a follow-up call from a Regional Manager.

    Reasons for Declining

    This was for a sales position in DFW-

    Was ultimately offered a position, and was initially told there was a much different, more lucrative salary structure but later found out it had changed, and wasn't as lucrative.

    Initial interview for the job began in December 2014, but they didn't offer me the position until the first week in February. Almost 1.5 months of waiting. I think 4-5 weeks from an initial interview, at most, is acceptable.

    I kind of regretted holding out for the position as I lost out on other opportunities and it hurt my finances. Apparently their 2014 salary structure(which was offered in December to me) had changed in FY2015. I was told it had changed, until I was about to start working, so I declined the offer.

    Health Insurance is also sky-high. I wouldn't even consider the insurance costs average for the industry. For basic employee only HMO, the plan is $78 bi-weekly. It's nice to see it offered, but I wouldn't consider it a 'competitive' rate.

    Had the initial salary structure I was initially offered remained the same I would have worked there. I felt mislead about the opportunity. I also gauged the initial start date incorrectly.

    All I can recommend is double-check everything!

    Not sure what the people are like since I didn't get to work with them, the building seemed very nice. It's probably a decent working environment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CAE (Dallas, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a phone call from personnel, followed by another phone interview with a program manager. General questions and asking my thoughts about teaching. Set up a in person interview with Program Manager and one HR person. Was again asked questions about teaching and how to interact with customers, and did a brief teaching session on a system, I did mine in live, I do believe they allow you to do it on tape. Was easy, not really any pressure at all, I was told to expect an answer withing a couple of weeks, I was offered a position the following day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CAE (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    They are courteous and professional, worked hard to make me feel comfortable in interview. I was prepared to answer airplane system questions but was not asked any. Was prepared to teach a system but was not asked to do so. Mostly questions about my style in handling problem students that were behind the learning curve, I.E, document everything and get them help, don’t try to proceed without notifying supervisor etc. keep everyone in loop. External customer vs. internal customer standard questions. Very straightforward interview. I wore a jacket and a tie, they did not. I was early 15 mins, they were late 10 mins. Panel of four platform mgrs. plus recruiter who ran the show. Adhoc questions that jumped around asking same questions from different points of view. Recruiter mentioned that she made several hundred cold calls per month to entice po
