    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Siemens.

    Interview

    I met their representatives at a career fair. I was offered an interview the next day. None of the questions were unexpected; they were mostly behavioral ones that required me to recall specific situations. No technical questions were asked. The hardest question I was asked was "What do you expect to be doing in five years if you're not hired by Siemens." I think I fell in the trap because I answered that I hope to be working at a similar company in the industry. Don't do this.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Siemens.

    Interview

    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

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

    Interview

    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!

    Interview

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Siemens (Orlando, FL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    A group of 130 candidates were phone interviewed and then 30 were selected for technical phone interviews and finally, 10 candidates were interviewed in Orland Florida in person over two days (1 night). We were all given a tour of the wind turbine safety training facility networked with WEIT staff, training professionals, and a few HR representatives. The second day consisted of two technical interviews (with 2 past WEIT specialists or trainers) and one HR interview (with a single HR personnel).

    Interview

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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
