    Service Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Centennial, CO
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at KONE (Centennial, CO).

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly smooth and not very drawn out. Went through I believe four rounds of interviews before an offer was made. The benefits package was very attractive and salary was about what I expected.

    Reasons for Declining

    The compensation seemed reasonable in terms of base salary, but they would not disclose the commission structure. Every time I asked they would give general answers and not give me the direct program.

    Quality Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KONE.

    Interview

    Most unprofessional hiring process I have ever experienced. Interviewed at the new facility in Allen, TX. Manager was 10 min late, answered his cell twice, was a 1 on 1 interview in his office until another lady showed up about 80% of the way through the interview. She proceeded to ask the same questions I had just spent an hour answering. Both were unprepared and struggled to put together thoughtful questions. Knew I would not advance from the start, they seemed to have no interest in hiring me. Overall morale seemed very low, shame because the new facility was beautiful.

    Supply Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KONE (Allen, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview first. HR rep was very professional. Scheduled an in-person interview within a week. When I arrived for the interview, there was no receptionist in the lobby. There was a phone on the table but I wasn't told to use the phone to call the receptionist to notify them of my arrival. An employee walking by stopped to ask if he could help me with something. He said he would notify the receptionist I was there. After 20 minutes (now past the scheduled interview time), the receptionist informed me that the interviewer was not in the office and someone else would come speak to me once they finished a meeting they were conducting. After another 25 minutes, a woman came to the lobby to explain that she and a group of others would speak with me and the interviewing manager would be on the phone.

    Interview Questions

    • Five people gathered in the manager's office and called her on the phone. Each took turns asking questions. I responded and asked a few questions of my own. The agitated manager asked two abrupt questions relating to my work history then requested that one of her team members escort me from the area as she had someone else she needed to call.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KONE (Dallas, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I gave my resume to a recruiter in Career fair at my university and did not apply online. I received a call from Kone and someone told that Hiring Manager wanted to take phone interview for Tender Engineer position later same week. Interview was directly from lead Tender Egineer at Kone and was easy. He talked about what he does and about his background for first 10 minutes and let me talk about myself for rest of the time. Interviewer sounded really friendly but 20 minutes to talk about myself without specific questions threw me off. Overall, nice experience.
