Electrical Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Holland, MI

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Johnson Controls.

Interview Details – initial interview: I was interviewed by 4-5 sessions. first it would be one or two guys each session. they asked pretty standard questions. They just went through my resume and asked me to explain them my experiences and stuff. some questions aboiut what i did in my previous jobs, classes. then explained the job and described the company most of the time. Asked a few questions abt basic electronics. then asked me to decribe components from a schematic. also brought a pcb and asked me what a certain component was doing. then talked more about the job. they were really nice.
reference check: they did call my references
second interview: I was called for a second interview but i didn't go for it because i got an offer from another company

Project Coordinator Interview

Project Coordinator
Plymouth Meeting, PA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Johnson Controls in July 2013.

Interview Details – I was initially contacted by JCI recruiter and then accepted for an interview. Initial interview with Branch Manager and with Sales Manager and other office Project Manager. Positive feedback due to my experience in the industry. I had another telephone interview and then another interview with service people. I was familiar with the industry so I felt comfortable with position requirements although I had worked in sales and not in service. Interviewed 1 week before 7/4/13 but was not offered position until 8/2013. Much time wasted before starting position.

Interview Question – How many windows are in the building?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was not in a position to negotiate and I thought that the offer was fair based on my previous experience. I did not realize the difference in the payscale because of economical changes since I had had a similar position at a similar distance from my home.

Interview Question – How you would increase sales. What was the most difficult customer you had to deal and how did you handle it. What is your glaring weakness. After you have answered a question they keep asking and what else would you do. Most difficult interview for me is when there are 2 or more people interviewing you.   Answer Question
