I informed that I wanted to be a part of something that could be very successful and that I believed their solution had value in our world today.

Answer: I informed that I believe the solution offered is a great value and gave compelling examples why I believed this and then explained that based on my conversations with the TA and Sales Leaders, learning about their needs and matching that with my experience, background and commitment that I believed I could collaborate well and help achieve their hiring goals. His response to that was very insulting. He said, no tell me why you really want to work here, implying that I was not being honest. These people checked my references and said they were working on an offer for me, leading me on for 2 months and never delivered on their promises. Less

What is SAP HANA? Gave me a scenario to check my reaction on handling pressure- this was really new and lovely. Asked question on how I can hire a person, where an employee has failed his BG check, but my gut says to go ahead?

I answered exactly what SAP HANA means. The pressure scenario was little dicey, but answered to my capability. I also answered the ways to recruit employees differently. The manager was technically and theoretically is very strong in recruitment that made me happy; I will be very happy to work under him, if I get a chance. I am shortlisted and expecting to be selected. Less
