    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Siemens (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2011.

    Interview

    They didn't ask as many questions you would think. It was mostly about the company and the culture. They explained the history and how they go to market. They outlined expectations and gave a detailed speech about why they are setup the way that they are. Everything was quick and to the point but left you feeling like you weren't part of a discussion. The entire process took about an hour or two.

    Contract Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Siemens (Orlando, FL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I first interviewed with the HR representative. He went over the basics, like most HR reps (salary, expectations, job description, etc.). He scheduled me for a first interview. However, before I even went in for the first interview, they sent me a couple of exercises to complete and email back before the scheduled interview date (drafting and correcting mistakes in contract samples, answering questions about indemnification/liability clauses). I went to the first interview with the hiring managers. Before the interview began they sat me down to do another round of written exercises. The interview process for this interview (including the time for the written exercises) took about an hour to an hour and a half. They called me back about a week later to schedule the second interview. This interview took a good half day and was with the same hiring managers, their manager, and the head of the department. Additionally, they took me out for lunch with the team of people I would have been working with. About a week later, they called to let me know that I had not been chosen. However, a couple of weeks after that, one of the hiring managers asked if I would like to come back in for another interview and stated that I would have to complete some more written exercises. While I was interested in the position, I could not spend any more time interviewing in person as I had already missed a day and a half of work (I work about 2 hours away from their office). So, I told them I would be glad to do any additional interviews over the phone. Honestly, I would have loved working there and it would have been a good opportunity for me; but the time and effort they expect out of the job candidates is and was unreasonable.

    Interview Questions

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Siemens in April 2012.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview followed by a formal interview. There were some standard questions, but a lot of critical problem-solving questions. They are testing if you can think during stressful situations. From what I have heard, though, this interview was a bit more involved than most from other departments.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Siemens (Sacramento, CA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    Well, I was scheduled for an interview at 11AM but it was 12:30Pm by the time I started the interview. Building interior was in very poor shape-the blue carpet was black with stains and tdeteriorating, the walls were white with black soot and grease, the front desk in the lobby consisted of a few pieces of plywood. The two ladies that interviewed me were not the ones stated in the interview letter. Both were eating their lunch and talking with the their mouths full of food. I stopped the interview after 10 minutes and left completely disgusted.

    Interview Questions

    • Couldn't understand the interviewers that well since their mouths were full of food.   Answer Question
