Sales Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Austin, TX
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Schneider Electric.

Interview Details

Initial meeting at campus career fair, follow up one-on-one interview the next day. Second round interview at a larger branch. Both interviews were primarily behavioral based. It took two full days to complete the second round (regional) interview, as the first day included dinner and a talk from some higher level management; the second day included an office tour, explanation of benefits and a panel interview; most panels were only two or three members, however.

Interview Questions
  • Describe a time when you were not able to fix a problem. Why were you not able to? What did you wind up doing?   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Negotiation is limited for a new hire out of college, but they offer more than fair benefits to begin with.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus career center, had one interview there and then moved onto a regional final interview event. The first interview just went over my resume with a few other questions about achievements in college. The final interview consisted of a panel interview, a case study (more of an activity to see how you work with others).

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Applied online through college site then got an on-campus interview. It was really laid back. I got invited to final interviews and they flew me to Chicago. Everything went really well and everyone was very nice. You have dinner and meet and greet the first night. The next day is long but helpful. You learn about the company and then have 3 1-1 interviews with managers. I declined the offer I received because of location.
