ERP Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university - interviewed at TE Connectivity in March 2014.
Interview Details – Met a TE Connectivity HR rep at an online career fair my university was holding in November. He reviewed my resume and we scheduled a call. I had a phone interview at the end of December and another in late January for two different internship positions before they had me come in for an in-person interview at their Harrisburg location. The interview took about 45 minutes and they said they would let me know in a week or two and the longer it took, the better for my chances. I ended up getting an email a couple of hours after the interview from the HR rep I had been talking to that said that they would be making me an official offer the next day.
Interview Question – What is your biggest weakness? View Answer
Reason for Declining – Everyone I met seemed friendly and it seemed like a great place to work, but I ended up declining the offer because I received an offer for a different position at another company that I was more interested in (IT Security).
Mechanical Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at TE Connectivity.
Interview Details – The interview process consists of one screening phone interview then a 1-on-1 interview with the hiring manager. If the hiring manager likes you, you meet with his/her boss for an hour interview. Besides that there is really nothing much more to it. They do no background checks and I know lots of people who falsified their credentials to get a job at Oceanside. It clearly shows in the aptitude of your co-workers. Don't get me started about drug tests...
Interview Question – Why do you want to work here? View Answer
Negotiation Details – There is no negotiating. Why I took this job is beyond me.

Materials Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TE Connectivity in April 2011.
Interview Details – TE uses corporate, located in PA, to do most of the hiring. Some of the hiring is done by the local facility. Either way, it is very systematic and similar to the hiring approach any company would use. There are no surprises.
Interview Question – I had to teach a 5 minute lesson. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was right out of college so I was just happy to have a job... so I was like, "when can I start?" TE does not really negotiate- you get what they offer. They have statistics on the average salary for every position... so they know how to offer competitive salaries.

Engineer I Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at TE Connectivity in December 2010.

5) 1 hr. phone interview
They asked mostly behavioral questions and past experience questions. I had fairly easy and straightforward interviews with everyone I talked to. For the six hour on-site interview, I talked to six different people all for an hour each. Many of their questions were repeated as there isn't much planning put into interviews on their end.
Interview Question – No technical questions, so nothing was too difficult. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I regret not negotiating more. They wouldn't negotiate on vacation time (2 weeks), but many coworkers were able to negotiate salary.
Senior Training Specialist Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at TE Connectivity in January 2011.
Interview Details – I received a single initial phone call scheduling the interview. I met with one of the HR specialists who spent about 30 minutes asking me some exceptionally general questions about my background. It was clear she had no knowledge of what my skill set really needed to be to do the job. After the interview, she introduced me to the manager of HR and told me I would hear from them within the week. By the time I got home there was a message offering me the position.
