    Associate Functional Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newtown, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at SAP (Newtown, PA).

    Interview

    Interview was a breeze. Mostly behavioral questions. When HR called and told me they'd like to offer me the job, they also offered a second job (more pay) they'd like me for.

    I chose the latter. after weeks and months of back/forth with the HR and the hiring manager ("we're working on it"), they just stopped all communication. Terrible and extremely unprofessional.

    I have never been offered 2 roles with the decision to choose. Not only that, but no clear path towards an offer letter. Waste of time.

    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SAP (Alpharetta, GA).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straightforward and had 3 rounds. After a brief 40 minutes technical & past work phone interview, i was called for a face to face interview. Both the interviews were technical with a few behaviorial type questions like what you want to become in next years, why that didn't work out etc. After phone and face to face, it was time for coding test in which i was asked to design and build a Web based system. It had some specific requirements and constraints.

    All in all they were interested in understanding how much of a 'system-design' mindset I have.

    Executive Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SAP in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a third party recruiting coordinator to set-up the first in person interview, without speaking or hearing from someone ahead of time. It felt abrupt, but during this first interview that I was told the process is a series of in-person meetings. In the interview I was called initially by the wrong name and it was clear the primary interviewer hadn't red my resume. All things that happen in the interview process, so forgiven.

    In less than one week, I was asked to come in for a second interview. This one was rescheduled for four days later, which also happens, but my availability was no considered. The job excited me so I moved things around in order to attend. Then, 1.5 hours prior to the new time I received an email, again from the third party company, that my interview was canceled and someone from SAP recruiting would be in touch. Later that same time I received an automated email thanking me for my application and saying I was not a fit for the position.

    It was confusing and disappointing, given SAP's reputation as a top employer.

    Interview Questions

    • "What kind people do you and don't you like to work with?" and "What was your favorite global team to work with (Asia, Europe, what country)?" Generally the questions were standard and related to my resume.   Answer Question

    Procurement Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at SAP (San Ramon, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    This company recruiting process is very disorganized. A third party is used to assist the recruiters with setting up interviews and the communication between the two is subpar. I was scheduled for an interview. I had 2 different people contact me several times by email and phone after one of their coworkers had already scheduled my interview previously. The level of disorganization caught me off guard and was definitely a red flag.

    I was scheduled to meet face to face with the VP of Procurement, who is located out of state. I was instead met by a Procurement Specialist and notified that we would be doing a video conference with the manager due to traveling issues she encountered. A conference room had been reserved. However, upon arrival, it was occupied. We had to wait for employees to vacate, which took aproximately 10 minutes. Once situated in the conference room, technical issues with the laptop were encountered. I had to wait another 10 minutes to begin the interview.

    Overall, the interview questions were basic. The energy was off, so I'm not surprised that I wasn't offered the position. Even if it was offered, I'm not so sure I would have accepted. I did not feel comfortable.
