    Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Zug (Switzerland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Leica Geosystems (Zug (Switzerland)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for a role in marketing communication but they actually offered me to be interviewed for a digital marketing role because they thought that my profile could fit better.

    First call, 45 min with 3 people, many questions but all went smoothly. A few days later, I was invited on an on-site interview, so I took two days off to travel to Switzerland. I had a presentation and a business case to show. The presentation went well, many questions that I was able to answer. Then discussed about salary, company benefits, etc.

    Two weeks later, they told me that they were very satisfied with my application and that they were about to take a decision. They asked me for academic records, diplomas and so no, plus contacts of ex and current colleagues for a feedback.

    "We received a very good feedback about you from your peers, we will let you know within 2 weeks". That was basically the beginning of a never ending journey. They kept sending emails every 2 weeks by saying that they were facing some delays and needed more time to decide. This journey lasted 5 months, and meanwhile they kept posting the role on the internet. I sent many follow up emails and called, but they always ignored me. They disappeared completely.

    I decided to call one more time after 5 months, even though I was totally aware that this was just a big scam and that they were just playing with me. Finally, the person who was managing this process replied. After stuttering and making up excuses, they told me that they won't fill this position. It took some time to see some honesty.

    This is the first time that a company treats me this way. Lack of respect, they just wasted my time. Totally disappointed. Very bad employer branding. This isn't the way a company builds a reputation, talents will run away.

    After this, I am sure I will no longer apply for roles at this company.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Leica Geosystems (Milton Keynes, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    A one hour first stage interview met with the Marketing Director and HR Manager. Interview seemed to go well and was shown around the office as I left the building. I then did not hear a thing not even that I was unsuccessful. So left hanging. Then a different recruitment agency contacted me saying that my CV matched the job description and asked me if I would like to have my CV submitted for this very job!

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Au, St. Gall (Switzerland)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Leica Geosystems (Au, St. Gall (Switzerland)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Pretty lean, some few technical questions asked.
    Overall the in site interview is very straight forward. They talk about their products, you can ask questions at any time, and propose solutions to certain problems they face.
    It is interesting per se, and very interesting if you had some kind of experience with image processing.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in St. Gall (Switzerland)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Leica Geosystems (St. Gall (Switzerland)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    (For salaries read the last paragraph)

    I applied online. Response was fast. Due to the distance a telephone interview with the Head Of Human Resources and two main developers was scheduled. Some basic questions related to my CV were asked and also a few technical questions, but no coding questions. After that, I had been invited to a personal meeting. Leica Geosystems told me in advance that they would pay my traveling costs (including hotel). They kept their promise. The actual job interview consisted of the following steps:

    1.) Meeting with the Head Of Human Resources and two main developers. The developers asked technical but fair questions. Writing code was not required. The Head Of Human Resources asked typical HR stuff (see questions below)

    2.) They told me in advance to prepare a presentation with some slides about me and a topic which might be of interest for the developer audience. Since English is the company language the presentation was in English

    3.) Other developers asked questions about my presentation

    4.) Lead developer showed me the company and products

    5.) Final talk (also about salary) with HR

    I declined this job offering because the salary was too low in my opinion. I tried to increase their basic offering, but salary negotiation is definitely not possible. The Head Of Human Resources spent up to 5 minutes explaining me why he will definitely not increase his offering. Everyone gets almost the same with small differences between Bachelor, Master and PhD. You should not expect more than 93.000CHF (~86.700€) with a Master/PhD. In addition to the salary I declined since I got the impression that there are most likely no career opportunities.

    Der Ablauf der Gesprächs war sehr gut organisiert und professionell. Der HR-Leiter begann, mir die Firma und die Position auf sehr informative und strukturierte Weise vorzustellen. Ich wusste genau, was von mir erwartet wurde und was die nächsten Schritte waren. Ich habe gesehen, dass wir dieselbe Art von Firmenkultur ohne versteckte Fragen sprachen. Es gab keine Feedbacks und keine langen Wartezeiten.
