    Business Intelligence Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Rapids, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dematic (Grand Rapids, MI).

    Interview

    - I have not yet been reimbursed for travel as promised, which means I am unlikely to be applying for another job with Dematic.

    1. Three weeks after submitting an application I had a general, easy phone interview. I was asked about what I was looking for and if I thought I could do the job.

    2. An easy phone interview two weeks later. I was given a fairly clear picture of the requirement and was asked to share relevant project experiences.

    3. One month later, an in person interview started well but I kept being asked the same questions over and over.

    I thought the interview went well. Two weeks later I was told the position was filled.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dematic (Grand Rapids, MI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Because I had already worked for this company about 10 years ago, the interview process was not the usual "let me tell you about my experience", since I had already more than 15 years of experience in the area of expertise and as manager of various engineering departments of this company in the past.

    Interview Questions

    • Willingness to travel, due to assignment requiring 50% of time in Europe.   1 Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Rapids, MI
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dematic (Grand Rapids, MI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone screen with some of the senior members of the team. During the phone screen the questions were mostly focused on personality, goals, and light technical questions. The second interview was on-site and included about 7 members of the team. The team was excellent. They seemed to mesh very well and you could tell they were a great work family. Each person on the team had a copy of my resume and asked questions. There was a simple whiteboard problem and a few definitions, but most of the interview was based on my experience, motives, and ability to fit in with the team.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no terribly difficult questions, but remember to brush up on the basic definitions of the languages on your resume.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had other offers to compare with Dematic and one of the other offers was better for our family. Absolutely nothing Dematic could have done. Dematic's offer was very competitive and there was no negotiating necessary to be offered what I believed I was worth.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Dematic (Grand Rapids, MI) in December 2013.

    Interview

    When I arrived at the company, I had to wait for the first interviewer. After the first interview, the next person was not ready. The organizational structure was unclear even with repeated questions. I only met three people for a senior level of management. The Company has went through many leaders and just recently announced moving operations to Mexico.

    I met with Dematic at the Grand Valley State University career fair in the fall and about two weeks later was put in a phone interview. The phone interview was a conference call with multiple employees asking me questions. The conference call started off with a really bad connection, so I would suggest using a land line phone if possible.
