Very Difficult Interview

Data Analyst Interview

Data Analyst
Cary, NC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Siemens.

Interview Details – The interview process takes study in itself. It is a behavioral approach and you are run through the gamut with various members of staff and management. It felt like being waterboarded. It took three hours and then found out they went ahead and hired from within, so that it felt like a huge waste of my time to meet some exterior interview requirement.

Interview Question – Behavioral questions, so the hardest for me was about a time I had created an innovative solution to something   View Answer

Senior Marketing Manager Interview

Senior Marketing Manager
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Siemens in September 2010.

Interview Details – Siemens uses external recruiters with internal email addresses for higher level jobs. Each business unit manages their own hiring from their US headquarters location, which varies by business unit. They do post jobs on usa.siemens.com, but the job title system can be very confusing and not intuitive. You can search by business unit, but I recommend searching by geographic location instead. The interview process also can vary greatly from location to location and the process is often reliant upon who is funding the role. In-person interviews are most common and behavioral style interviewing style has been adopted broadly.

Each business unit has its own culture. The corporate culture is also rather conservative. This is predominately an engineering company and rather stoic at the corporate level. Individual offices do have more varied culture and tend to engage more in local activity if they can fund themselves.

Interview Question – I interviewed with eight people in one day.   Answer Question
