    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson Controls in July 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR via phone, this was the initial pre-screen interview. If they like you they pursue to setup a in-person interview at the job site location. This took awhile to setup due to vacation | out of town manager. Once scheduled the interview was held at the closest office, a semi formal and manager came in with copy of my resume and extremely nice, asking all kinds of questions about my previous work. He eventually explained the specifics of the job, hours, and other information. We shook hands and said I would be contacted whether i was chosen for the position or not in 2-4 weeks. About 2-3 weeks later(from interview date) the initial HR person called me back and told me I had been chosen for the position and setup a time to meet and talk at the office. The same manager greeted me when I arrived the 2nd time. We reviewed compensation and signed the contract, confirming my start date.

    Negotiation

    My salary was set higher than normal due to my college degree, the hiring manager said that's about all they could offering me after I suggested a few dollars per hour more. I was still happy with the offer, the meeting was smooth. Both parties left happy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Holland, MI).

    Interview

    With the help of my then College I had the opportunity to begin my first internship with Johnson Controls. The process seemed intimidating at the start but the individuals I engaged with were extremely easy to talk to and down to earth making the process a bit smoother. The process started with over the phone asking questions geared toward my major (engineering). I then made it to the 1 on 1 interview where I got a chance to tour the facilities and meet everyone in the department.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Cranston, RI) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online in December 2015 and first spoke to the Recruiter from the company in March 2016. She forwarded my resume to the hiring manager and there were two rounds of phone interviews in May. Fair to say that it was a long drawn affair.

    Interview

    I applied online in December and spoke to the recruiter in March. We went through my background and experience and she forwarded my resume to the hiring manger for this position. There were two rounds of phone interviews with the hiring manager and senior leadership. After going through my background and experience, I was invited for an interview at the company.

    The interview day stared with a tour of testing facilities and with the staff giving a background about the company and what they do. This was followed by the actual interviews with different managers and staff who were mainly looking to see how prospective employees would fit in their team.

    Overall, the interview process was fast and straightforward and very well organized.

    Interview Questions
    The hiring managers mostly focused on basic behavioral questions (STAR interview) as well as focused on your past experience. e.g. How did you handle conflict between two people in your team? Some managers also focused on relevant experience and technical skills and how those skills matched their expectations.

    Interview

    Professional. Initial interview was coordinated through recruiter. They worked with me to schedule a mutually convenient time.

    The interview had the usual questions of experience and why I was looking for a change and why I was interested in Johnson Controls. The benefits package was too good to ignore and sold me on the position, if it was offered.

    A more in-depth follow up interview had me meet potential team members with deeper questions about my experience and what I could expect if offered the position.

    Finally an official offer came from the service manager followed up by HR; Then some simple paperwork and drug screening.

    the process took about two weeks. HR sent an email and set up a half hour phone screen, then one week later went for an onsite interview. Interviewed by 5 team members, they are all so friendly. The interview questions are not really difficult, just verify your background, experience and introduce the position responsibility and the product.

    Systems Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Washington, DC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my University's career website and after two days received an email requesting an interview. I was interviewed by two employees who would effectively act as my managers. The interview started with them asking me what I knew about Johnson Controls, and what made me interested in them. They were friendly and very open about the duties and difficulties for the position, which I appreciated. The rest of the interview mostly consisted of them asking me about particular points on my resume and how it might apply to the job. I asked them questions throughout the interview, so I did not have many meaningful questions left at the end.

    The job was ultimately something I was not a good fit for, and that was clear to both parties at the end of the interview so I did not receive an offer.
