    Technical Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Keyence (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for this position online and was contacted by an outside recruiter a several weeks later. The company was searching for recent graduates that are able to start in that upcoming May/June. The recruiter set up an initial call to explain a bit more about the company as well as the position I had applied for. She asked several basic interview questions such as, why I wanted that position, what I look for in a company, why I am interested in a technology based company, etc. From there you have to apply to the company itself. If your resume is accepted you have to complete a 55 question exam in 25 minutes on basic conceptual physics.

    Interview Questions

    • You are asked 55 questions in 25 minutes on conceptual physics, If your score is high enough you will be contacted to take a personal assessment test and an online computer ran interview. Meaning that the questions are asked via a recorded simulation and then record your answer to play back to managers later. If you move through the process from there you have a third in person interview.   Answer Question
