Sales Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in College Park, MD

Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Carrier (College Park, MD) in November 2015.

Interview

It was a lot of behavioral type questions and no technical questions at all. Sometimes it was hard to think of answers because they were so broad (like most behavioral interview questions). I talked to two people. Each one for 45 mins. It was a long interview. Learned a lot about the company during the interview.

    Interview

    I was invited to take part in an on-campus interview with two carrier sales engineers. The first was quite pleasant and asked very pertinent and intelligent questions. The second asked harder questions. I took an extra second to think about the hardest one he asked and I could almost see the judgement in his eyes. I am sure this is the reason I did not get the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Carrier in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a carrier representative at my state college, and asked to come in for an interview. Later that day an HR representative told me I was selected for a second round interview in Charlotte, NC. They flew me out and paid for my hotel. The next 2 days were filled with plant visits, multiple interviews with engineers and HR people, and a group case study type interview. They told me they would get back to me with their decision; however, they have yet to contact me (its been 3 months now). The overall experience was amazing but I just wish they were more transparent with their decision, I would rather them say no to me than string me along and say nothing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Carrier (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Everything I prepped myself for I ended up throwing out the window and a total waste of time. I guess that's what I get for reading self-help books. Should have spent far more time researching the company and what it stands for. In particular, what it expects from it's sales engineers on a day-by-day basis. For example, how would you spend a typical hour of a day spent calling on a contractor...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Carrier (Baltimore, MD) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to HR department. Then I had a formal interview with Senior Sales Manager to discuss the job responsibilities, customer base, salary, incentives and benefits. I met the office team that I would be working with that included the Sales Administrator and the Operations Manager. We also discussed the work load and flexibility available for family.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any previous experience in technical sales?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I negotiated an annual salary rate that I needed based on my previous experience level and existing customer base. I recommend that applicants look at the value that they bring to meeting a prospective employers need with a specific customer base and your ability to create more business opportunities for your employer. Don't be afraid to ask for what you really need to be successful - even if you are on a probationary period to produce the results.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Carrier.

    Interview

    On campus process begins with a technical cum aptitude paper followed by a GD and a string of Personal Interviews. The papers i fairly easy, specially the aptitude section. No negative marks. The tech section has basic as well as niche questions. The GD process includes a debate on a case study, HR-based case study in my case. PI's are very friendly.
