    Procurement Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Ramon, CA

    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.

    Senior Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SAP (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very long hiring process. Needs around 10 interview meetings to get the job, HR post the job openings, seeking candidate through headhunter, searching their internal staffs for job matching or promoting no matter is inside or outside the country/region, start the meetings with hiring manager, procurement, operating staffs, peer groups, sales head, presales,..Ridiculous hiring process. Interview managers are without experience to ask candidate questions, just wasting both (company and candidate) time.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SAP (Miami, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First I did an interview with a recruiter. She checked my skills and salary intentions. After 1or 2 weeks I was invited for other 3 phone interviews, including the hiring manager. They made questions about my backgroung experience, working style, language skills and personal stuffs. Each interviewer had a different approach, but all of them make me feel very comfortable during the process.
    After 2 weeks I was asked for an 1:1 interview at SAP office in Miami, with another member of the team. He made questions in three different languages and later he said he was just checking my language skills and personal behavior.
    After a long wait (3 weeks) they send me an email asking with I was still available for a final interview with the Global VP of Retention. The interview lasted 30 min and he was very objective during the full time.

    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.
