I applied online - interviewed at Lutron in May 2014.

Also the interview included product usage and implementation scenarios based on their current product range.I was basically asked to figure out how to setup a sensor which controls a window shade.Questions were based on what type of sensor/the sensing and other implementation and response time based on requirements.

Interview Question – Nothing in specific.Just resume questions and scenarios in the phone round.I did not go beyond that.   Answer Question

Electrical Engineer Interview

Electrical Engineer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lutron.

Interview Details – I received a phone call from some recruiter told me that the company liked to have engineers "grow"... So I got a phone interview set up with the HR who of course took forever to set it up, then I interviewed w/ an engineer and I felt like I did fairly well he told me that the company was really innovative and didn't just look at how book smart you are but also how can you develop hardware use testing equipments...

Interview Question – Technical questions are pretty tough...
It is just that you are expected to remember equations from Microelectronics...

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Lutron in September 2013.

Interview Details – Spoke to someone at my college career fair. Had a 45 minute interview the next day. He asked some of the usual interview questions but the main part of the interview was more theoretical/technical. These questions were not that difficult but I think I didn't get an offer because I had trouble answering them on the spot.

Interview Question – You have 3 switches that connect to 3 lightbulbs that you can't see in another room. You can go look at the bulbs but you can't come back to the switches again. How do you figure out which switch goes to which bulb? -- They let you come up with as many possible answers as you can think of.

How would you implement a vending machine class? What methods and attributes would it have? -- Again they let you go on for as long as you want to.

Project Electrical Engineer - Analog Interview

Project Electrical Engineer - Analog

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lutron.

Interview Details – I applied for the electrical engineer position and my background is in power electronics. The phone interview has three parts. The first part of the interview is an introduction of yourself and some questions about the projects on your resume. The interviewer is quite interested in the projects related to DCDC converters. The second part is an IQ question. There are three light bulbs in a room and three switches controlling them in another room. You can only go to each room once. Then, you need to decide the corresponding switch for each light bulb. The last part of the interview is questions about buck converter.

Interview Question – The IQ test is quite unexpected. For engineer position, few companies has patience for questions other than your experience.   View Answer

Interview Details – 2 phone interviews. relatively easy. general questions about software skills, multitasking and problem solving abilities. they wanted someone with architecture background or engineering so the person understand drawings, needs, and can solve problems. also recruiter said that she likes the fact that I sound very mature and seems like I manage things well.

Reason for Declining – the roles are not very interesting and challenging to me. had a better offer
