I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Rockford, IL) in August 2015.
Phone Interview - Experience was fine. HR person was very professional and friendly. All of the question pertained to the company and the position. This is a great company to work with very few openings because employees don't leave once they get hired.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Arkadelphia, AR) in January 2015.
First screening interview by HR manager. Was invited to the plant in Arkadelphia and met with department manager from Europe. Sent thank you notes for in person interviews. Followed up with HR manager following week. HR responded via email that they would be making a decision that week. Followed up the following week and never received a response back from HR. Plant HR manager quit Danfoss during this time frame. Not a very professional experience when considering their website states that they will notify you either way throughout the hiring process.

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Danfoss International in February 2014.
the process started with local head hunter; the company usually does not deal with submitted resume. It usually starts with phone interview held by a department head, either a director or a VP, pretty much very basic. However, be prepared to very detailed description of what you have done if you listed yourself as experience.
- give me a high level description on the most difficult task/project you're done in the past Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Ames, IA) in March 2013.
Initial contact was made at a career fair. From there a follow up phone interview was conducted with Human Resources. After that round of interviews a follow up was scheduled with the hiring manager. This is usually done on site and a tour of the plant is given as well. Unfortunately this did not work out for me so instead a second round of phone interviews was set up and performed.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Ames, IA) in February 2013.
Had a telephone interview with the recruiter who contacted me, followed by a telephone interview with the engineering manager, followed by a visit to the Danfoss Power Solutions facility in Ames, IA. Was not offered job, they are still looking to hire as of April 18, 2014. Was surprised on not being offered - they got back immediately in a week, through the recruiter. Was not given clear reasons, except something vague and evasive along the lines of 'you are not adding anything particularly new to the team'.
- Difficult technical Q : Was asked to predict what would happen in a load-sensing hydraulic circuit under various conditions. Unexpected behavioral Q : what is a quality in you that someone you love the most, cringes at? Answer Question
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Ames, IA) in May 2012.
Very long process, involving initial phone interview, followed by a second phone interview, followed by a 3 hour long multi person interview before finally a position offering. It was very thorough and very well organized. During the middle of the interview process I was taken to lunch by two of the members of my future team. It was a great way to interact in a social manner to get to know some of the future teammates.
