    Talent Management Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager called to interview. I was then asked to visit the company HQ to be interviewed by 4 managers, separately. I emailed them twice to ask about their decision but I never heard from them. I think its quite unprofessional for them to invite me over to their office and then not even bother to notify me of their decision. Shows what kind of a company they are.

    QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Johnson Controls in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an HR representative approximately 5 days after I applied for the position through the company website. I was then scheduled for a phone screen. The phone screen lasted for approximately 15 minutes and mainly consisted of behavioral questions as well as my skills and experience relevant to the position.

    Early the following week I was contacted by an engineering manager to schedule a phone interview for that same week. The phone interview lasted for approximately half an hour. The manager asked technical and career-oriented questions. What is your experience with functional/regression testing? Give me an example. How would you respond to criticism from a senior engineer?

    Global Product Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Johnson Controls in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met with four different people within the company for 30 minutes each after being emailed about a position I applied to two weeks prior. Its was very laid back and they were mostly interested in what examples you can give on things you've done that would help with the position. Many of the typical interview questions were asked and almost no pressure at all. Overall, the process took about four weeks from the time I applied, to being contacted to interview, to actually interviewing.
