Technical Sales Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX).

Interview

I met recruiters at a career fair and had interviews with them. I later then flew out to Dallas for the final rounds of interviews. The final round of interviews was split into behavioral/technical and then a sales simulation. The interview was pleasant. It felt like a conversation rather than an interview!

Interview Questions

  • Very typical behavioral questions. Just know your resume really well and talk about all your experiences and how that would relate back to sales   Answer Question
  • Tell me the components of a cell phone   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The first part of the interview is a video recording of yourself answering a couple of standard, behavioral questions. The next step is to have a video conference with one or two different engineers representing the program you're applying for. If you make it past that, you move onto the on-site interview where they fly you into their HQ for the on-site final interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The process can be broken down to 3 steps: the first one was through an online portal, in which they asked me 6 questions and I had to record my answer; once I passed that one, I had a 1-on-1 live video-chat with a Manager (it was supposed to be 2 of them, but one didn't show up); after successfully having finished this interview, they flew me in to Dallas, where we had a welcome dinner with actual TSA program employees the night before, and then had an interview on their HQ. The interview consisted of 2 interview: a Sales simulation and a regular interview. The sale simulation was pretty fun and a GREAT learning experience; the actual interview wasn't exactly hard.

    Interview Questions

    • Sales Simulation: Sell a Vacation Package.
      Interview: Mostly based on previous academic projects
      - Draw an amplifier circuit using a 741 and some other basic op-amp questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Austin, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email asking to set up and complete a video interview where I recorded myself answering a few questions. After this I received another email to select a date for a video interview with two hiring managers. This interview was solely behavioral and went very in depth into my resume, from my projects to my extracurriculars. There was one technical question, but it was not pressured and was more to see how I explained something in layman's terms.

    Technical Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was asked for on-campus interview. Standard questions for technical sales took place such as " Why would you want to be a sales person?" or "Are you aware of the differences between Application Engineer and Tech. Sales" to confirm your attendance to the information session previous night.

    During 30 min. webcam interview, you are asked some behavoural questions as well as " what are the qualities of a tech sales person", "do you love to win or hate to lose?".

    During on site interview, you are asked to sell a vacation package. This is not very formal as they help you during the process and provide feedback. However, there is a 45 min behavioural interview with 2 regional sales/marketing managers. Try to be very communicative and talkative to demonstrate your sales side.
