    Interview

    Spoke with them at career, got called for on campus interview. It went really well, I loved the girl I interviewed with. Behavioral questions. Just gotta connect with the people. They emailed me about a week later asking me to come up to Indy for a 2 day interview process. The first day we did group work and some random tests and then went to a super nice dinner. Second day was a 1 hour interview and tour of the facility. Interview was behavioral until very last question. I didnt provide a very good answer. Be confident!

    Interview

    Had a campus interview. It went very well. Questions were situational/behavioral. Interviewer was very nice and easy to talk to. Made it to final rounds on-site. Was a two day event. First day we were put into groups and given a half hour to solve a problem and figure out how to present our solution. All the groups presented. We then took a test and dinner. The next day we had a rotation of a tour, Q&A and interview. The interview was with three people and was situational again.

    Interview

    After a 1:1 on campus interview I got contact a few weeks after for the second round. The second round consisted of a two day event with everything planned out well. The first day had a company presentation, group case study/presentation, and IQ tests. This was followed by a great dinner were alcoholic beverage was provided (be careful). Second day consisted of a very casual talk about yourself as an individual and a panel of current workers.

    Interview Questions

    • The students were split into groups to brainstorm a case study and perform a presentation. The process is very fast with very little time to properly prepare a presentation but be ready to present to a group of executives.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Locations are limited and are mostly on very small towns with nothing to do. If you are a city individual take this into consideration.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Belden.

    Interview

    The interview process was very generic and unprofessional. However there was testing that was done to determine where you ranked in accordance with their company values. The hiring process was your standard hiring process with drug screen and background check.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The company did not represent itself in a professional manner and there did not seem like there would be any other opportunities for advancement

    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Belden (Richmond, IN) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Thorough but took way to long (over 6 months). By the time they finally were permitted to make an offer had already started a job 5+ months earlier at a company further away from home than this one and initially turned them down because had 3 other offers on table at same time. Since working there found that the this slow process is the norm not the exception. They find the ideal candidate but don't move fast enough and they have already moved on.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Belden (Neckartenzlingen (Germany)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Nach der Bewerbung per Mail für eine Masterarbeit erhielt ich in etwas weniger als einer Woche eine erste Rückmeldung über den Bearbeitungsstatus. Circa eine weiter Woche später erhielt ich dann die lang ersehnte Einladung zu einem Vorstellungsgespräch. Das Vorstellungsgespräch verlief erfreulich unspektakulär. Anwesend waren außer mir eine Personalerin und der Leiter der Fachabteilung. Meine Aufgabengebiet wurde verständlich vorgestellt. Die Atmosphäre war positiv, es gab keinen spürbaren Zeitdruck und alle meine Fragen wurden geduldig beantwortet.

    Interview Questions

    • Typische Fragen zu mir, meinem Hintergrund, meinem Studium, meinen Interessen, was ich mir von dem Abschlussarbeitsthema verspreche und ein paar fachliche Fragen. Außerdem: Welche drei Eigenschaften oder Fähigkeiten würden Sie sich wünschen, wenn eine gute Fee diese Wünsche erfüllen würde?   Answer Question
