Sales Engineer Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Manhattan, KS) in February 2018.

Interview

I met with their campus recruiter at a career fair. Later I followed up with an email and thank you card. After applying online I got a video interview. The video interview is exactly as previously stated by others. Six questions, four you can edit two that are one take only. This seemed to go well because I have in person interview later today.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    It was intense. They asked a lot of questions. Mostly on behavioral and how fast you can respond to a certain situation. Some hard technical questions as well but mostly trying to see how good of a sales person you are. They also want to see how quickly you can pick up things.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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