Technical Sales Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (West Lafayette, IN).

Interview

I talked to them at a career fair, landed an on campus interview. The interviewer was very friendly and very excited. Seemed like I had a good shot but then I was flatly told later by HR that they couldn't hire me because of my citizenship. Which sucked because it was a sales position and I wished they didn't get my hopes up by giving me the on site interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    Met TI recruiters at the university EECS career fair. Told them I was graduating in 3 months, and what I was doing for my Master's research, etc. They filled out a form with my information and told me to apply for the positions I'm interested in online. I applied to everything I was qualified for, without thinking if I really wanted that job, and got the HireVue interview (video call) for Technical Sales, even though my resume is heavy on the technical side. The interview was completely behavioral, and I made sure to use coursework project scenarios for all answers. In the end, the interviewer asked me if I was competitive, and I said no, and then he asked if I really wanted to be in sales, and I answered no to that too. I added that I didn't know why I was even picked for this position, and told him I was more interested in being on the technical side of things. He himself had been in the technical field before switching to sales, so he talked about what he had done and what I was interested in. Based on that, he passed on my resume to the Design Engineering team, and I now have an interview with them next week.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments in October 2014.

    Interview

    Entirely behavioral questions, no technical questions or anything related to my resume. Asked me to pick a topic I was familiar with and sell it to them. Pretty laid back environment, actively received feedback while interviewing. After a few weeks they told me through email they weren't going to continue the process

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (College Station, TX) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Met the recruiters at a university career fair and they did an on-campus behavioral interview that week. It was more about me and my resume than technical stuff.

    Next, there was an online video interview. I had to record myself answering questions on a webcam. Mostly behavioral stuff again.

    Finally, they were going to to a webcam interview but they couldn't get their equipment working so we did a 3-way phone interview. It had more technical questions, and they asked about my engineering classes.

    The whole process, from career fair to the offer, took about 2.5-3 months.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    It is an interview that has less concern about technical skills, but more concerned with how you are as a person, and if you have the potential to be a good seller . There is a 2 interviews and a simulation . Dress is Professional .

    There is a prescreen interview before the onsite, it was a little different for me because you are asked five questions, and you have to record your answers. It is a little different because you are not actually talking to someone, and if you think you messed up a question, too bad soo sad ... you cant edit your recorded response...
