    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Emerson.

    Interview Details

    They generally only use outside recruiters (contract, RTH) to find talent, although employee referral occurs as well. They generally bypass a recruitment pre-screen by using one of three outside recruitment agencies, regardless of how they came by an applicant. However, most of the time, they are looking for a body to fill a seat, and are not really interested in their technical or business savy.

    Interview Questions
    • If you were asked to perform a function outside of your realm of expertise (with no additional training), would you be able to jump in and be the team player.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Difficult, they were not willing to give much, but in the end we both were agreeable to it. The HR department basically ignored the Hiring Manager and took it upon themselves to try and cut the position off at the "Salaries knees". Note: I learned, after the fact, that they were negotiating with at least three other people for the position a the same time. Whomever relented the most, got the job, as all but one were of equal experience levels. What got it for me, was the promise (in writing from HR) of guaranteed modest increases for the first two years (however, they never happened, despite very good performance reviews, and I eventually left the company).

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Emerson.

    Interview Details

    Fairly typical: phone screening, then in-person interview with potential co-workers and managers lasting about 4 hours. I was called back for the 2nd round of interviews with upper mgmt and was told I would hear back within a week. I never heard back even after emailing and calling the hiring manager and internal recruiter.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing overly difficult or unexpected. What was unexpected was interviewing with upper mgmt then never hearing back from them. Very disappointed that the hiring manager or internal recruiter didn't contact me to say I wasn't offered the position.   Answer Question
