    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schindler (Dallas, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    You do three rounds of interviews with two salespeople for the first two interviews and with the HR person in the third. In each round, they get to know you, ask questions about your experience, interests, etc. It's essentially three separate interviews The final interview with HR is more formal. He read the questions straight out of their recruiting guide, which are fairly typical interview questions about how you overcome challenges, your weaknesses, etc.

    They paid for my flight to Dallas to interview, picked me up at the airport, paid for my hotel and my dinner. They are quite generous in that respect.

    Associate Engineer/Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Schindler (Pune (India)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I was called by Company HR and he discussed about my profile on call and also asked about my expected salary. After 2 weeks I got a call from HR again and he scheduled my interview and told me it is going to be a interaction meeting with department head. After this call I called him to ask about work profile and he told me he is not allowed to disclose. I asked whether it is going to be a technical or general management role. He tole me , more may be like general management role. I was also interested more in those kind of role. So during the interview, first question of department head was ..You have done bachelors and masters for tier one institutes , why you want to join us. (Schindler makes lift and escalators) hence nothing to do with Aerospace. I told him the kind of role I am looking for. Than he told me that we are looking for core technical kind of work, doing design and simulaitons. So based on this discussion with him we both decided not to go further since it would have been a mismatch for company and for my career as well.

    Note: If HR would have told me about profile , I would have talked in same line and may think of taking this role based in salary ( If they would have offered a very good offer)
