    Help Desk Technician Tier I/II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in York, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (York, PA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was the standard interview questions. Also they asked several technical questions about software that only they use, so only an JCI employee would know how to support it. The job description is misleading. It is not a help desk position as listed. It is an application developer position. Now I am blacklisted because I didn't get this particular job.

    Here is the problem I am not ask about any of this.

    I was asked name what ticketing applications I have work with and my experience with them. after I clearly stated that my ticketing experience was hand written forms.then he goes on to asked about remedy (Remedy Action Request System) experience. which is an application .Clearly this guy is a foreigner which I am too, but unlike him English is my first language which is not his. then I was put on hold for 2mins, I am guessing he had to think up two more questions
    I was ask what oracle server experience do I have working on oracle servers , which is not listed above. which is a server administration specific type job and not Helpdesk Technician(DESKTOP SUPPORT!!!!)
    Name what imaging software have I used and my experience with it. I was not asked if I know how to create an image file or how to use it with virtual machines,or on virtual servers or computer which I do know.

    then I was then told "you not what I am looking for OK good bye"
    I had to ask him can I ask some questions, he said OK. by the time I stated my that I had two bachelors in engineering (E.E and CPE) he cut me off and said " you do not have the experience that I looking for " . " I have other candidates if it does not work out I call you back "

    clearly they are locking For a server Administration support and not Helpdesk Technician (DESKTOP SUPPORT!!! ), but they do not want to pay for a server administrator (which the lowest I have ever seen is 30/ Hr or 62K per year at a small charter school with 350 students doing basic computer work). The job requires you to support the entire company(162,000 employees). I was told by Hr the base salary is at $25/ per hr, which is about 52K per year. form the reviews on this company they do not like to negotiate they only like giving the base pay.

    Battery Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Milwaukee, WI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I recently accepted an offer as a Battery Engineer Intern after my 7th interview. These 7 interviews spanned over a year for 4 different positions. This may seem rigorous, but I realized JCI loves to see persistence. The position I accepted is a position JCI sought me for as I did not apply for this particular position. Through my whole interview process the HR staff responded promptly, and I have not had one bad experience with a JCI employee!

    Technical Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westminster, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Westminster, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. First interview with hiring manager, in-person. Second interview with five people at one time. The interviews went just fine, everyone was friendly and the discussions seemed to go well, but then I did not receive a follow up. I sent a follow up e-mail. Did not receive a response or follow-up, AT ALL. Not even a "Thank you for coming in, but we decided to go with someone else.. " I thought it was incredibly rude after I went in there twice for interviews. Even if the interviews had gone terribly, it is at least polite to say something to the applicant even if the company is not proceeding with them.
