Inside Marketing Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee in Newtown Square, PA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at SAP (Newtown Square, PA) in May 2010.

Interview

The initial communication was through an employee referral. Once the hiring manager saw resume, I was contacted by phone. After a phone interview I was brought in to interview with 3 different hiring managers on the same day. It was a very open and comfortable environment, more of a conversation than a "what type of animal would you be" interview.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

They don't play games. Most of the time, what the hiring manager offers you, is the maximum you are permitted to receive. It may be worth asking for more, but I've come to understand that they are fair with their initial offers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SAP in November 2011.

    Interview

    The challenge is that there is always change at the company - this is a pool from which people move on to other jobs as quickly as they can by switching from contractor status to internal employee once you have demonstrated that you can handle the current role. Since there is a lot of change it is not always easy to see consistent hiring timelines. Some people are hired on the spot - others, like I did, take a while for them to find the position against which they will fill it. The main concern each manager has then, is how you will adapt to an outbound sales-oriented nurturing process where you are engaging the prospects and qualifying them, but not closing deals (as that is handled by another department.) If they feel you can't get up to speed with the products, the process, or the calling metrics, then you likely won't get the job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Pitch the manager as simply as possible about what SAP does for its' customers.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It's all standardized through their agreement with the contracting company you get hired through, so there really is only room to go down if you don't have much experience in selling software solutions. And if you don't have much experience, then you may not be considered by a variety of managers, so it ends up being pretty non-negotiable.
