At the second interview, they gave me a tour of the plant floor, asked me some basic heat transfer questions and typical interview questions on how I handle stress. They talked about benefits after that and we went our separate ways. They contacted me a week later telling me I did not get the position. Overall, they were very nice and the interview process was not very stressful.

    Leadership Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Düsseldorf (Germany)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GEA Group (Düsseldorf (Germany)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and at the very next day i received formal invitation for face-to-face interview. There was no phone call or pre-screening, no phone interview with usual questions to gauge candidate's monetary expectation, availability etc. That was bit suspicious. My first thought was, the company trying to find solution free of cost.

    Interview Questions

    • It was 2 executives as a panel, those who need to present deliverables on global initiative. They were asking questions related to job description, but i got an impression they need detailed consultation how to develop strategy and implement one of the global initiatives.
      At the middle of interview I realised it's not an actual interview. I work as HR consultant almost a decade and got clear idea how genuine interview looks like.

      They were advertised role for about 4 months. Only last month I got response from HR that I wasn't successful.
      And the last. Till now I haven't got promised pay back travel expenses. I actually travelled from another part of Germany and it took me entire day. But I got own experience and like to advise anyone to be cautious.   Answer Question
