Mechanical Engineer Interview

Mechanical Engineer

I applied online and interviewed at Schneider Electric.

Interview Details – The usual interview process was a phone screen, another telephonic interview with a manager and if a successful candidate, would be called for an on-site interview.
I had phone screening with Schneider Electric for an engineering position. The recruiter was very kind and nice and asked very good questions about me pertaining to their requirements.
There were few basic questions were:
1) Tell me something about yourself.
2) Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
3) What did you do in your internship with XYZ company ?
4) What kind of CAD softwares you're familiar with and how is your expertise on those softwares?
5) I see you have done some excellent projects in your academic as well as professional career. Can you please elaborate on those projects?
6) Have you had any chance of showing your leadership skills or Have you in your past lead a team to go on and complete the task ?

There were few other questions which I cant recall. But, the level of difficulty was the same as these questions.
Phone interview lasted for about 30-40 minutes, where you get a chance to speak up about you and your accomplishments and also the recruiter will share the company details, products and what is that they are expecting from the candidate.

Interview Question – The questions were straight and relating to you. So, if you know yourself very well, it should be an easy task for you.   Answer Question

Technical & Applied Engineering Full-time Opportunities Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Schneider Electric.

Interview Details – Met them through a career fair, this was just a preliminary process, there was no position that I was specifically interviewing for. An employee asks a bunch of behavorial questions, enters your interests and answers into a database, and then hiring managers look through your responses in a database and pick you for second round interviews.

Interview Question – Name a time when you took a risk, and would you do it again?   Answer Question

Accounting/Finance Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Schneider Electric in October 2013.

Interview Details – The process started after attending a career event at my university. I was contacted a few weeks later for an interview regarding this position. The interview was somewhat informal in that there was not a lot of pressure, but there were still expectations about the quality and type of answers one should give. For the most part, the questions were behavioral in nature rather than asking to solve a problem. All in all, a pretty basic interview. The employee that interviewed me actually went through Schneider's development program, which we talked about in the interview as well.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years down the road?   Answer Question

Entry Level Mechanical Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Schneider Electric in February 2014.

Interview Details – It was an on-campus interview. Very relaxed, more like a conversation about the different opportunities they had than an intense interview. They were pretty blunt with choosing a location preference and asking for a preferred salary. Since it was entry level I was a little flustered. Overall very easy. No technical questions and I learned a lot about my options with the company.

Interview Question – What do you like least about your major?   Answer Question
