Service Desk Analyst II Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Landis+Gyr in April 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online and the next day, I received a response via email to complete a short questionnaire. That same day, I received a request for a phone interview with the recruiter. That conversation lasted less than 10 minutes and he recommended me to the hiring manager.
The following Monday, I spoke to the hiring manager for 30 minutes and it was mentioned that she had other open positions for which I was being considered. Five days after speaking with the hiring manager, I received an email with a generic rejection response.

Co-Op Student Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Landis+Gyr in April 2008.
Interview Details – I just applied to the company via a school website and I was called in for an on-site interview.
The interview process consisted of first talking to the HR representative of the company. She asked me a few behavioral questions and talked to me about the company and what I would be expected to do. After her, two department heads (Engineering and Marketing) came in and had a chat with me about what interests me, hobbies, school coursework, etc. They also asked me some behavioral questions geared towards conflict management and handling people.
Just be open with them, be honest and dont try too hard. It was a very relaxed interview and I felt very comfortable during. They dont grill you, and you get the sense that they want you to work there too.
Interview Question – Give an example of how you used your engineering thought process to solve a problem you didnt know how to solve right away? Answer Question

Technical Lead Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Landis+Gyr.
Interview Details – The whole process took around 2 weeks. Interview pannel guys have only basic knowledge. Round1 was a technical round and it moreover like a personal chatting,talking about family background and all that stuff. The interviewer doesnt seems to have a strong coding knowledge.
Round 2 - Very Simple - only 1 puzzle and again about my previous company.

Nothing technical was asked. Whatever was asked, can be answered by the final year student also.
