    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    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.

    Application

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

    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.
