I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lutron.
Interview Details – Applicants are required to submit a detailed online application, then take a Calipers Personality and Intelligence test. If the applicant is ok, then the candidate is invited for an interview.
The company headquarters is in the outskirts of Allentown PA. The building is literally surrounded by cornfields. So living in this area must be seriously considered by applicants.
My interview process was the following...
A recruter called to learn about my background and screen me. He liked what he heard and scheduled a phone call with the hiring manager.
The call with the hiring manager went well as well so I was invited for an onsite interview. For this position, I believe the interview process was a little on the excessive side.
I had a dinner meeting with the hiring manager the night before the actual interview day. I thought this was useful in building a social connection.
The next day I had a 7 am breakfast interview followed by eight other interviews...back to back...each were 45 minutes long. I've been through this before so I knew what to expect. However it can be draining.
I believe they are very picky for the type of people they hire. Fit is very important for them. Also, Lutron tends to prefer candidates directly hired from college vs. experienced people from the industry. Several of the people I interviewed with said this to me.
After the interview process, I lost interest in this opportunity and did not pursue it further.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview with Lutron first after which I was called to their headquarters in Lehigh Valley, PA. The interview was scheduled to be for 5 hours. There was one more person interviewing with me and after getting there I found out that they had asked the other person to prepare a presentation however they hadn't asked me to do that. There were two people who came to interview me after which they sent another person to take me to lunch and show me around their headquarters. I was told that the interview was over after that and the other person was still being interviewed. I knew I wasn't gonna get it because the driver, on the way there, had told me that the person they keep till the end usually gets it.
