- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Emerson (Marshalltown, IA) in May 2015.
The interview was not very difficult. There was a lot of focus on CAD skills and applicable experience. I made every experience I had in school count and tied it to whatever question they asked me. I have experience with different kinds of software so my versatile skills were attractive.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Emerson (Marshalltown, IA) in February 2015.
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.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Emerson (Marshalltown, IA) in September 2011.
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.
