    Global Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at OSRAM.

    Interview

    After submitting the application, I was asked to come for an interview instead of starting with a phone screen. Unconventional, but I was happy to move along in the process as quickly as possible. The day of the interview, I was emailed as I was preparing to leave to let me know an important meeting was happening and the interview would need to be postponed. This wasn't a huge issue as I've gone through those hurdles sometimes.

    I went in for the interview the next week as scheduled. The coordinator who I was in communication with could not be found. I met with the head of HR who had no clue I was coming in and couldn't find my resume. She then scrambled to find the hiring manager who also could not be found. Eventually I sat down with a business development employee who was not prepared to interview me nor had an idea of the role. After 30 minutes, and still not being able to find anyone, the interview was finished. Very soon after these meetings, I was sent an email saying I was not being considered for the job.

    Jedi mind tricks or poor coordination? I'll never know. But be aware that this could be indicative of major structural issues at Fluence.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    A phone call with manager and later a video interview with 3 people for 45 minutes. People interviewed were very unfriendly. One of then was a new employee, so he was clueless I am curious why they even put him in interview board. They were not willing to listen to answers. Afterwards, company went to a total radio silence, not an email even for rejection, HR doesnt reply to emails. Overall, i dodged a bullet.

    Phone screen followed by, phone interview and onsite interview with 2 people. One interviewer was very abrupt with me because the interview had been scheduled for a 1/2 hour and she had a conflict. Every interviewer mentioned challenges of working with Germany. That was a red flag. I still haven't heard back from them. Even a form decline email is appreciated.

    Development Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at OSRAM (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied from the company career site. One week later got a call from hr to arrange an interview. Passed the first round then invited to the second round for on site. The travel plan and accommodation should be arranged by urself, the hr never provided u any information. Being told the cost will be reimbursed by the company. However, after the second round, no response about the interview results and even the reimbursement. I would say the HR in Osram resensburg is not so professional compared to those companies of the same level. But the interview was a nice and friendly talk.
