    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schindler (Damansara (Malaysia)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online via Jobstreet

    Got a phone call from HR department for the interview

    It was conducted in a closed room, just me and the interviewer, which is very private.

    Very professional interview i must say

    Straightforward & intimidating, depends on which department you will be reported to because it will be questioned by the head himself.

    Anonymous Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Schindler.

    Interview

    Conditions discussed and agreed upon during the interview were totally different from those upon offer. Gave some poor excuse to justify themselves though. I feel that the company’s culture is poor. I also wish to add that the offered salary was lower than what i was drawing in 2014. I didn’t know that inflation works backwards.

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary, inconsistency in offer and jobscope.
