    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at SGL Carbon (Pune (India)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    There was no Human Resource Manager but the Finance Head was handling the HR Dept. The call was professional however in practicality it was extremely disorganized. There was no sense of responsibility and acknowledgement towards the candidates present for the interview. More importantly the Documentation took 2 weeks to be completed and had to be given a push for , everyday. Salary negotiations were done/handled in the most unprofessional manner.

    Interview Questions

    • Why would you like to shift from Hospitality into the Corporate(Manufacturing) Segment?   Answer Question
    • Give us one reason as to why should we recruit / consider you from all the other candidates who have come in?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were not satisfactory. It was more like a negotiation that takes place in the fish market. Cutting down on the basics and HRA & other possible aspects and giving a hike in a bonus amount which has a clause of entitlement after 9 months.
    A little inconsiderate, if the Managing Directors have decided onto an aspect the Finance Department cuts it down furthermore to show cost cutting/ savings to justify the salary they are getting.

    Hence definitely a little too unprofessional when it comes to monetary aspects.

    Textilingenieur als Projektmanager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Meitingen (Germany)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SGL Carbon (Meitingen (Germany)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Bei dem Gespräch waren drei Personen von SGL Carbon anwesend: Zwei Frauen aus der Personalabteilung (HR und Talent Pool) und ein Herr aus der Fachabteilung.
    Zu Beginn habe ich mich kurz anhand meines Lebenslaufs vorgestellt. Die anschließenden Fragen kamen fast alle von dem Herrn aus der Fachabteilung und waren dementsprechend sehr technisch und bezogen sich auf meine bisherigen Arbeiten auf dem Gebiet der Faserverbundwerkstoffe.
    Von den anderen beiden kamen sehr wenige Fragen, die sich dann auch auf typische Personalerfragen beschränkt haben.

    Der generelle Bewerbungsprozess läuft insgesamt wie folgt ab:
    - 1. Gespräch: Kennenlernen
    - 2. Gespräch: es werden der Vorgesetzte der Fachabteilung (in der Hierarchie kommt da drüber nur noch der Vorstand) und noch einige künftige Teammitglieder dabei sein. Ich müsste eine 15-20-minütige Präsentation auf Englisch über ein Thema meiner Wahl halten. Anschließend gäbe es dann noch eine Diskussion.
    - 3. Gespräch: Gespräch mit dem Vorstand, der letztendlich auch für die Einstellung verantwortlich ist.
