    I applied online – interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and 2 weeks later I was contacted for a phone interview. Questions were pretty easy. HR then asked me to take an online assessment. Once I completed that, I was asked to come in for an interview. I met with two people. Interview lasted 30+ minutes. They asked me to stay to meet with 2 more people. They interviewed me for another half hour. Really great interview experience. They were thorough with their questions and really open to answering mine.

    Corporate Communications Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview Details

    On 11/28 I applied for the Corporate Communications Designer position. On 12/03 their HR rep called me. Her very first question was, “Are you currently employed?” No, I explained, my last contract ended one year ago (I immediately knew I did not stand a chance of being hired). She asked me to describe my PPT design background as the job description had a strong emphasis on PPT design/development, and I am an expert in this area. She then asked for salary requirements, and the call ended with her explaining that the next step would be a telephone interview with the hiring manager who is located in China. The next day, she emailed me saying the hiring manager “has seen your portfolio but is mostly interested in seeing more of your ppt work,” and to please send samples, which I did. Today, 12/18, I received their automated rejection email. With 17 years of design experience I was 100% qualified for this job. I am confident that the reason I was disqualified from even being granted a real interview was the fact that I am unemployed (it’s either that, or my age, because clearly someone with nearly two decades of experience must be over the age of 30).

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Schneider Electric in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview was supposed to be on-campus. However, on the day of the interview, I went in to find they had cancelled without prior notification. They sent a follow-up email expressing their deepest apologies and set up an online interview via HireVue. Personally, I do not believe a company is able to get a true sense for what an individual is like based off of an online interview, since there is no way to read body language or hear feedback from the interviewer. Regardless, after the interview had been submitted, I never heard back from them, which I found to be rather unprofessional. Overall, it was not a good experience.
