    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sennheiser.

    Interview

    First step was a telephone interview as I was living very far away at the time. 2 People from the HR department asked me several standard questions. The atmosphere over the phone was quite nice and very friendly. We agreed on a second interview face to face. I received an e-mail with detailed instructions on how to find their factories and appointment details with my interview partners. Very good!
    On the interview day I was welcomed by the person who still had the job to show me around and explain basics about the job. That was at first a little bit odd, but while talking to him I learned that he was going to be promoted to a new job and just transferred to another department. So I was going to be simply his successor. After that my potential new Boss and his department manager invited me for lunch (yummy!) and then after that we had a more in depth personal interview. That went pretty good as well. There was no special test required although it was about a technical position. Level wise it was somewhat of a step down for me (being a department manager in my old job at that time) but it was a very interesting job offer. Nevertheless we agreed on contract negotiations. They sent me the contract via e-mail again and a few questions were quickly clarified via telephone again. I accepted the job!
    Overall the experience was very good.

    Interview Questions

    • There were 2:

      1) Standard: "What are your strengths and weaknesses?"
      -> If you prepare yourself for this question then you can deliver.

      2) "Being a Manager with direct reports in your current job right now, how will you handle this possible step-down by not having direct reports anymore and find your place in the Organization?”
      -> I did not prepare very well for this question, but I answered honestly with a mix of strong interest and flexibility. I guess they liked that.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sennheiser.

    Interview

    got an unexpected phone call and was giving an interview right on the spot. The job was something I applied to over a month ago. So I was not quite sure what the job was about, but the interview must've thought It was the only job in the world I applied for so I should be ready. I think that is ridiculous. They should've have set up a time to call me so I could prepare myself.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sennheiser (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    Lengthy and many rounds of interview and slow feedback and decision. It takes 3months to get back. The offer was posted via email. I think local HR could have done better with a face to face meeting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sennheiser (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was low-stress and it mainly stressed about my background and previous achievements during the first round of interview, and the remaining interviews were scenario based and focus on how I would would approach certain situations and what decisions I would make as a Product Manager. I was interviewed by the Director of Product Management. The interviews (3 total) progressed very quickly between the first round and the final round. The decision was quick with a turnaround within 2 weeks total.

    Negotiation

    There was not much room for negotiation, however, the offer was reasonable and there was no need to stretch it much further.
