Production Associate Interview

Production Associate

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Plexus.

Interview Details – I got this job through Kelly Services. Their interview consisted of an unbelievable test, which consisted of math, spelling, drawing lines inside of lines, and comprehending what you've read.

Electrical Engineer Interview

Electrical Engineer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Plexus.

Interview Details – was young and looking to move West to enjoy the Rocky Mountains.
The hiring engagement was pretty straight forward. The initial HR representative that I spoke to seemed a bit unpolished, but once you get through to a hiring manger it is much better. For electrical engineering positions you should expect a standard battery of technical questions starting from basic to more advanced – dust off you college text books. People were friendly and seemed to like their jobs. It took a long time for them to tell me one way or another if I got the job. I did not appreciate that.

Interview Question – A standard set of technical questions starting from basic to more advanced and an informal lunch for asking questions.   Answer Question

Quality Engineer Interview

Quality Engineer
Buffalo Grove, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Plexus.

Interview Details – Phone interview and two on-site visits. HR intern handled most of the arrangements. Good impressions, site does a very good job of house-keeping, which provides a deceptively good impression. Staff is very well qualified; however, middle to upper management a slight smug.

Interview Question – Heavily regulated by the FDA and ISO, have familiarity with these as they relate to the medical sector. Obviously, level of familiarity should be commensurate to the position.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very open, however, I had a previous professional relationship w/ the hiring manager and so it was not antagonistic in the least.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Neenah, WI

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Plexus.

Interview Details – Talked to a recruiter at a career fair, then the next day (or 2 days later) had an interview on campus. Pretty routine interview asking me about my resume and experiences. He said he'd recommend me for the next step, and a week or two later I got an email from them. I drove out to Neenah WI (they paid for gas and the hotel), and had an all day interview consisting of a tour, meeting with HR (they went over benefits, which I thought was really weird), and a couple of skills tests. One test was about the software process (requirements, design, implementation, etc), and one was a programming test. They said they had the same test for all skill levels, and I missed a fair amount of questions. Got an offer a week later via email.

Interview Question – What do you think I want to hear
Had other skills questions
  Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They only gave me about a week to decide, the offer was quite a bit lower than others I had gotten (though still quite reasonable), and it was out in Neenah WI - I got a job closer to home
