    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    The interview was about an hour long and entailed many technical questions. The interviewers were nice and friendly. There were not many situational questions such as "Explain a time where you had to express honesty". Overall the interview was not difficult.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school and received notification of an interview about a week thereafter. The interview was 30 minutes and consisted of mostly behavioral questions with a few technical ones thrown in. The technical questions weren't particularly tricky, my interviewer just seemed like she was challenging the topics that I brought up that I seemed to know about. We finished the scheduled questions with 5-10 minutes left then we chatted about a current event involving Siemens for the rest of the time and that was it. I did not get a callback for the second round, and never received a confirmation that I did not make it. Overall I think I did decently well, but it is a very competitive program and I was only a sophomore so oh well!

    Very positive interview process. People very nice. Gave a seminar. Was asked multiple coding questions based on my language of choice. Work culture undergoing a lot of change. No office, all shares space, which can be a possible downside.

    Engineering Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with a recruiter at the involvement fair and was offered an interview for the next day. My interview was with the recruiter who I spoke with and we discussed the program, different assessments of leadership styles and past experiences with leading projects. All in all it was a pretty typical interview.
    My only problem was that I was told I would be hearing back (regardless of offer or not) in 3 weeks after the interview and after a month I contacted the recruiter who told me I would be hearing back shortly. I still have not heard back and it has been 10 weeks since the interview. Very unprofessional for such an esteemed company and I was obviously more inclined to explore my other offers.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Ok. Fairly easy questions, but be prepared to back up your insights with real-world examples. They'll probe. Also be sure to have references handy. And don't expect feedback from hr or the hiring manager soon afterwards. It's a big company, which can mean the hiring process typically takes several weeks or more.

    ELDP Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was about 45 minutes; behavioral questions were asked and there was one challenging question that involved an unexpected way of thinking about a presented real-world situation. Typical behavioral questions include: Tell about a time where you encountered a difficult group member and explain how you sought to resolve that conflict. Additional questions were tailored to the program specifically; questions were asked about location rotations as well as the time needed for separate projects completed during the rotation.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was about where I saw myself in 20 years. I really had not thought that far ahead and ended up pausing for a few minutes before I could muster up the honest answer which is that I had no plan at the moment but would contemplate that more closely upon graduation.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Siemens in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied for another Biochemist position, but my resume was intercepted. Received a call from the supervisor about a week later and had a short phone interview. Sixty minute in person interview the following day with two supervisors present. Also received tour of the laboratory (a bit messy, not entirely impressive). Ten days later, received an invitation to interview with potential co-workers and director of department, but declined due to distance (facility is approx. 60mi from my residence). Interviewers were very friendly and straightforward.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. So tell me about yourself, strengths/weaknesses, tell me about a time you had to collaborate with coworkers, how would you handle a task you've never done before, what are your plans for the future/ where do you see yourself in 10 years, do you mind working late into evenings if necessary, have you ever been given an unexpected deadline and how did you deal with it, can you explain how immunoassays work?   Answer Question
