    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Interview

    Overly complex, met with 5 people totaling over 4.5 hours. HR processes overly complex and do not serve well to bring talent into an organization. There manufacturing facility is in great need of basic programs, such as preventative maintenance, and they have done well to prevent the acquisition of personnel.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lutron in May 2015.

    Interview

    I talked to 3 or 4 interviewers. They were all very serious. They asked behavioral and technical questions. The behavioral questions were fairly easy but the technical questions were confusing because they would change the problem situation so frequently. Sometimes I would say the right thing and then a few lines later they would say it as if I hadn't come up with the solution. I became very frustrated and quickly realized this was not a company I wanted to work at. I left after lunch and did not get an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Lutron.

    Interview

    I applied online, they called me for a quick "get to know you" interview. They then decided they would be interested in moving on in the process. I then took a personality profile and aptitude test. Went for an on site interview. The actual interview was A WHOLE DAY LONG. Be prepared to be tested on your area of study. I was interviewed in 5-6 different sessions by people in different areas of engineering at the company. It certainly was grueling, but everyone was very polite, and friendly. I got the feeling that everyone I interviewed with was pretty smart. They knew their engineering stuff backwards and forwards. The fact that they put employees through this kind of screen process is very promising. I could tell that everyone actually cared about the company.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lutron (Coopersburg, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    After a brief phone screen, online assessment and a phone call with the hiring manager, I was asked to go to Coopersburg for an all day interview. The interview started at 8:15 with a tour of their show house, to demonstrate all of their lighting and shade products. After that I was placed in a conference room where everyone rotated in and out. I interviewed with 7 people in total, most from different departments. The strange thing about all of the interviewers was that they said exactly the same thing during the interview - "everyone at Lutron is really smart", and I still can't figure out if it meant that people who don't work at Lutron are dumb, OR if they have to tell themselves everyday how smart they are so they can actually start to believe it. Another interviewer asked me what I thought of their interview process as though Lutron is the only company that uses all day interviews with some logic exercises. The logic exercise is a role playing one - you have to track something down that is critical to a customer order, and the answer is so far out of left field that only some engineer that actually designed this critical part could figure out the answer. As far as the job itself, the message I took away based on the answers to my questions was that Senior leadership was a nightmare to work with/for but everyone below them was ok. I left the interview knowing that if I managed to get an offer that I would turn it down, as everyone I interacted with came off as smug and with a "better than you" attitude.
