    Material Management Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plainfield, IN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Siemens (Plainfield, IN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. Received an email for online screening within a week. Later, received an email from HR stating the hiring manager is in town and wants to conduct an interview the next day. After that a second interview was scheduled with HR. A third interview with talent acquisition, which was to be conducted on phone, was scheduled for a later date. After the third interview, I did not receive any calls or email regarding the status of my application. Upon emailing the HR inquiring about the status I received an automated email stating that I was rejected. I believe that my interview went very well especially the first one. I only wish that they could have provided some explanation for the rejection after wasting my time for three interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The first interview with the hiring manager who was also the head of department, was the longest and toughest. The manager was extremely polite and friendly. He asked questions like:
      1) What is the one thing your resume doesn't tell about you.
      2) What is diversity to you and how will it be important for this job.
      3) How would you resolve a conflict in the workplace.
      4) How would your prior education and experience be useful for this job.
      The second and third interview with HR and Talent acquisition were about prior jobs and why they were left.   Answer Question

    Procurement Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McClellan, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Siemens (McClellan, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Received a call from Siemens directly. The recruiter was very personable and clearly explained the overall job opportunity. Then asked me questions based on my resume to see if my skills and experience were a good fit. Since I had the skills and number of years of experience in procurement my resume was forwarded to hiring manager at their McClellan, CA facility. Received an email from the hiring manager and scheduled a face to face interview. What a complete waste of time! The manager gave me the impression of being very unsure of the job itself and the requirements. Appeared uninterested and distracted. Very unsure of what he is looking for in a "candidate". Told me I would received a personal email or call from him with regards to decision of hiring. I got a generic email job declination without any explanation. Quite disappointing because their HR Recruiter from Siemens was very professional and yet the Manager at the facility hiring for this job was the complete opposite. Furthermore, I question if this job role will ever get filled? Siemens has been looking to fill this position for nearly year and half. I have constantly get hit up by external recruitment agencies trying to fill this position. Obviously there is a seriously dis-cord within the company at this facility and after meeting and going through the interview process, I can see why. Do not waste your time! I literally have any 5 different agencies including Siemens hit me up to apply. Just received another email this morning from another agency. That's 6 in total! What a dysfunctional joke.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Siemens (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview process was a video interview. They asked five to eight questions where I had a set amount of time to respond. Each question was recorded for a maximum length and the Interviewee can re-record their answers as many times as they would like. Only downside is this limited the possibility to ask questions at the end except for in written form and wait for a response.
