    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Steelcase.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter. Three phone screen interviews followed by two online assessments, two lengthy in-person interviews, background check, reference check and drug test. A lengthy process for sure but overall a positive around finding a mutual fit for culture and role. There are many veterans here with longstanding experience at Steelcase. You will feel right at home if you're a "seasoned pro".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Steelcase in May 2013.

    Interview

    Someone wanted to hire on an intern with capability in general development and 3D graphics. I was referred through a friend, who was hired on after our professor was emailed about potential candidates for the position. I only had one interview with general questions, showing I had general competence in communication and programming, as well as prior work experience. I don't know what the normal application process is, mine was a special case, as it was through an employee referral for a specific job.

    very good interview experience. They have other people in your potential team interview you normally. The interview lasted a while - with different groups of people interviewing and using pre-determined questions. which is good - because they are not recruiters, but possible co-workers.

    • If you do not know anything about the system and are on call, and get called in the middle of the night about something you know nothing about what would you do?   Answer Question
