Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

Easy Interview
Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Los Angeles, CA) in Dec 2015

Interview

The short description: The interview was not too long, around 2 hours and it involved meeting the various sales team leaders and a one-on-one with an intern about what the job is like. The more in-depth description: The first round interview was a "meet and greet" with the sales team leaders to see if the candidate would be a good fit for the job. From what I learned, the position is mainly filled by CalState graduates who were part of the sales club in their respective schools. When I was given the interview, it was to fill in a part of the team where a stronger technical background would be helpful with understanding the controls modules of HVAC systems. Note: If you REALLY want the job, read 'Spin Selling' before walking into the interview as the sales model Johnson Controls go by is apparently based on that book.

Interview Questions
  • Common interview questions: "Why do you want to work here?" "What experiences do you have with sales?" "Have you considered other jobs other than this one" "Have you read 'Spin selling'
