Sales Engineer Interview

Sales Engineer
Austin, TX

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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.

Sales Engineer Interview

Sales Engineer

I applied through college or university and 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.

Interview Question – How do you handle stress?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – They want people who don't mind moving around the country.
