    Average Interview

    Application

    submitted my resume to a recruiter, was contacted about a week later and had a phone screen scheduled a couple of weeks after that. phone screen was very technical followed by an in person at tyco in princeton with the Director of Platform services. interview went well and lead engineer mentioned pushing to get the role moving but was contacted a day later indicating i did not have as strong "enterprise" experience as they had expected though i work for the DoD and in my prior role was an infrastructure engineer focused on virtualization for a 50k plus user environment with multiple global datacenters. this role has been open for some time and tyco has had issues filling it.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tyco in February 2016.

    Interview

    The Person was very rude when approaching me as a candidate, they expect a guy that do follow up and bahave in a professional manner but that doesn't apply to them, was very obious that she wasn't familiarized with my résumé at all. Been said that I don't have experience in sales - 25+ years clearly stated in presentation letter and big sales and proven trac records with company names, contact, numbers and jobs - related to Electronic sales - was a disrespecting thing.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Tyco.

    Very brief, did not set a positive tone or first impression. Although I had prepared thoroughly, I was unable to use any of the information. Recruiter spent the time educating me on the company and asking why I would want the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tyco (Evansville, IN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed within 2 weeks of sending in my resume and filling out an application
    Was told after the interview, they would call me to let me know one way or the other about the position.
    2 months later, I am still calling and leaving emails to both managers I interviewed with... NO ANSWERS.
    NO RESPONSES. NO COMMUNICATIONS...
    Honestly, if this is how they treat their prospects, I'd hate to see how they communicate with their employees especially if there is something they don't want to deal with...
    After all, HOW HARD is it to tell someone that they hired someone more qualified than you???
    I have no problem being told that.. No matter HOW high of an opinion you have of yourself, you are NEVER the best....
