    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SAP.

    Interview

    It was kind of unstructured - I didn't know the time and place of the interview before the night before, so I almost didn't show up. However, I am glad I did, because it went well and SAP is a great company to work for once your are past the whole recruiting/onboarding phase.

    The interview was pretty straightforward, questions were average.After the interview , they told me they would let me know of their decision by the end of January.

    They havent responded yet so I assume I have not been accepted.

    Contacted by recruiter.
    1. Some basic question about the background including graduation date, research experience, intern projects.
    2. The earliest starting date and salary expectation.
    After several weeks, still waiting for the next step. BTW, it seems more likely to interview local candidates.

    Functional Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SAP (Newtown, PA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through the SAP website for the Functional Consultant Role. I was contacted by the recruiter 2 days later to set up a call with her. The call was scheduled for a few weeks later (she was traveling). I spoke with her on the phone. She did an initial screening. Asked me about my past experience, why I wanted to work for SAP.

    She then scheduled a phone interview with the Director whom I spoke with a week later. The director was very nice and a pleasure to speak with. I spoke with her about my previous work experience, my desire to work for SAP.

    I was then invited to the last round of interview in early December. Before the interview I was asked to take a personality test and a math test.

    This was the first time i experienced an interview where all candidates were invited on the same day for an interview for the same positions as well as other positions. I had the opportunity to meet my future colleagues as well as the early talent at SAP currently. They also had a demo session where we were able to learn more about the company and what their plans are for the future for SAP.

    It was very well structured. I was interviewed by a total of 3 people. The Director who interviewed me over the phone and 2 others. I also had to do a presentation (on topic of my choice or my favorite class during undergrad) I chose a topic I was comfortable with and could relate my previous work experience with.

    I heard back about my offer a few days later. No negotiation for this position salary wise.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SAP (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick, technically thorough. The longest part of the process was the time between applying and when the actual interviews started. Once things got started though, it took less than two weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SAP (Palo Alto, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    There are 5 rounds 1-1 interviews. 4 algorithm white board question, one project you did related questions and behavior questions. The interviewers are very unprofessional. I wrote the algorithm on the white board, but the ridiculous is that one interviewer didn't understand your solution at all even with explanation. Another one did not exactly understand the answer, and insisted that the answer is not right. I am so disappointed at the interview experience at SAP Palo Alto. Even they gave me offer, I would reject it. The reason I don't want to work with this kind of team members that are not nice, not capable and not professional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SAP (Berlin, CT) in December 2016.

    Interview

    After an initial step interview via phone, which was mainly technical and related to my research backgrounds, the company invited me to have a in place interview in the main office of company. All the costs of travel have been refunded later by the company. I would say the in place interview was rather formal, and the decision have been made before.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SAP.

    Interview

    Unprofessional recruiting process. One of their executive recruiters reached out to me on LinkedIn about a VP job. We agree on a time for an intro call to discuss the position. The recruiter does not show up and later emails me asking to reschedule the call and requests my availability for the following week. I follow up with two options for a call and never hear back.
