    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Swagelok (Fremont, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was a long interview process, couple phone interviews, 3-hour long tests, all day interviews, couple more 1 on 1 interviews. The process was more than 8 weeks long. I had at least 7 rounds of interviews with Swagelok and had to drive 40 miles every time. People are very nice. They tried to be the story that customers tell. However, it wasn't the case for interviewees. I had a time conflict with one of the phone calls so I asked to reschedule. However, the manager was angry at me and rejected me because he thinks I was interviewing with other companies. I was shocked by his compulsive response and wonder if he understands the basics of recruiting process. Though the people are very nice there, I am not sure if the compulsive behavior of the manager best represents Swagelok culture. He is certainly nor gonna be the "best story" that customer tells and he doesn't understand he would be hindering his company from recruiting best candidates.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swagelok in July 2016.

    Interview

    Application process took ~2 weeks. Initial application through the website, received email next day from an outsourced recruiter. Given an initial phone screen, then invited to interview onsite a few days later. Following an SAT-style aptitude test, there was a rotational interview process, first with colleagues, then with hiring manager. Total process took ~ 4 hours. All were pleasant and professional, particularly the hiring manager. Followed up with recruiter and was told I'd have feedback for an additional onsite interview in the next couple of days.

    After a couple days had passed, I reached out to the recruiter via email and phone, but was unable to get any feedback for about a week, at which point I was informed that I did not get the position.

    Sourcing Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swagelok (Solon, OH) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was a pretty straight forward phone interview with typical behavioral questions. They drove more into detail on specific experience with contracts and contract negotiation. Also asked for a specific example of difficulty with contract negotiations and how resolved it. Sourcing is divided into 3 groups: raw material, components, and then expense group. I wish they would supply a bit more detail on job descriptions so aware where the potion falls prior to interview.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Swagelok.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly straightforward as far as interviews go. Multiple staff members were present from HR to engineers. The interview was not particularly intimidating as the conversation veered into informal at times and back to very formal while discussing past experience and the job itself.
