    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SAP (Chicago, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had two calls, nothing very technical. I would recommend having a good understanding of the software industry as a whole and a passion for joining the "cloud wave". Overall down-to-earth people looking for a genuine interest in the company.

    Interview

    Applied it online through Employee Referral, got a call from Recruiter within 2 days and then followed by Telephonic interview by the Hiring Manager within a week .

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SAP (Newtown Sq, PA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was first contacted over the phone to setup a phone interview with one the directors after sending my resume to one my colleagues. The phone interview went over my resume and asked very specific technical questions about the projects I have worked on and skills I have listed in my resume. After that they setup an on-site interview at Newtown Square, PA. The second interview was with two engineers and they asked basic questions about logic and my resume.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SAP (Palo Alto, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call for interview. First round was phone call interview which was pretty decent and easy going. Second round was on-site which was technical and included white-board coding too. For third round, I got phone call and it was technical again. All these rounds lasted for about an hour. Last round was phone interview for me and it was just an HR round.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SAP in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interviews consisted of behavioral questions and work experience background. On-site interviews were both behavioral and technical questions. The overall experience was great! Everyone was very personable and genuinely wanted to get to know me as a candidate. Some UX Designer interviews can feel a little bit like an interrogation, but SAP didn't feel like that at all. Very good company and the people are good too. The HR are very active and reply promptly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SAP in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online in mid May 2016, and got email from recruiter in about two weeks and set up a phone screen. BUT the recruiter didn't call at the time so I followed up by email. Then we rescheduled the phone screen, but AGAIN, I didn't get the call for the rescheduled phone screen. So I followed up the THIRD time for rescheduling, and finally the recruiter did call. It only lasted about 10 min, and I introduced my background, and the recruiter only asked some logistic questions (e.g. time of availability, salary expectation etc.), and seemed very indifferent about talking to a candidate (didn't even want to introduce about this role). Very ridiculous experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Two screening calls with behavioral questions. The next step was 2 technical interviews on the same day via Skype. However, the second interviewer didn't call, so I had to reschedule for another time. The rescheduled interview was over the phone and not through Skype. Overall, the process was alright but it doesn't really seem like SAP takes the time to care about potential hires.

    I applied online. I interviewed at SAP.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a phone interview after a few weeks. First had a discussion about my background, the projects I worked on, and some behavior questions. The technical part focused a lot on details, need to know the language very well. The interviewer was nice. Didn't get the chance for next round, but it was a positive experience.

Smart people, motivated people - the new millennial hires are really good. Cloud culture had great positive, team culture which has been dissipating in the past 1-2 years. As more "old school" SAP managers are transplanted into the Cloud businesses, we see a shift in culture - which is slowing things done, and driving down motivation. SAP knows what good leaders should look like - talks about it a lot - but doesn't know how to select them, or evaluate or develop them. The HR organization has little impact. Key leaders decisions are made in a vacuum with not talent/cultural oversight. It's a shame - because we have so much going for us - there needs to be strong investment in leadership/culture and oversight.” – Full Review
