    Interview Details

    Spoke with HR over the phone, and was shortly after flown out for an interview. The interview day was very long and tiring. Had 9 1:1 interviews, all of which were the same thing - questions about my resume and experience. Besides the interviews, had a 5 question test in the lab. The test's goal was to check my ability to read schematics, and work with testing equipment.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marshalltown, IA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Emerson in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was set up at a Career Fair, gentleman I talked to led me to believe that the interview would be with the Emerson parent company. Interviewed with a different gentleman working for Fisher explicitly (control valves). Interview started off well, I had experience with the line of TI micro controllers he used (MSP valueline).

    Interviewer was dressed in casual attire, Polo and slacks. Prompted me for questions about the company multiple times. Took approx. 30 min. Not a lot of technical questions. More interested in previous project experiences than technical knowledge.

    I inquired about opportunities outside of Fisher, and he seemed to become upset. He told me he was recruiting for Fisher only.

    Interview Questions
    • Write a function that takes an array as the only parameter, and returns an array of the same values in reverse order. Any language, must compile.   View Answer
    • Talk about a time when you worked in a group with one or more people when they didn't complete their independent objectives.

      Followup was how did you handle it.
