    Commercial Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation (Columbia, MO).

    Interview

    Got the interview out of career services from my college. The first interview was on campus with the outside sales and inside sales supervisors. They seemed like very nice people and asked the usual HR questions... name a time when you had trouble working with people etc.. After the first round interview it took about a week for them to get back to me about a second round interview (also on campus) with their boss. He seemed like a nice person as well although a little uptight. Second round interview was essentially the same as the first with very similar questions, so I got the impression that it was just there to feel your personality out. The people that I interacted with though as a whole seemed a little uptight in my opinion almost like robots.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation.

    Interview

    2 day round-robin interview process. First day was a general overview with all of the other candidates about the direction of the company and an overview. Later we split into smaller groups for more specified details on the position and to ask questions. After that we were assigned into 4 person teams for engineering olympics which was a series of tasks to accomplish in 45 minutes and ranked on the outcome. Finally that day we had a networking event with upper management and alumni from the program. That second day was the actual interview which was panel style and about an hour long with an engineer, an HR representative, and a Vice President of the specific business unit.
