    Interview

    Phone interview followed by an invitation for an on-site interview. On-site interviews lasted all day, speaking with 10 people. Was asked to prepare a presentation on current work. Interviews had several problem solving exercises, including an estimation problem. Asked to role-play how I would go about solving a customer's problem. Overall, I felt that while the interview was challenging, the questions they asked were reasonable/fair.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Lutron (Coopersburg, PA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    Initial contact was through a recruiter. A phone interview is done by an engineer followed by an onsite day long interview. Interview consists of tours, problem solving and academic questions such as electrical problems. There are also role playing exercises. There are two light bulbs in series with different wattage, which one will glow brighter. Make a case for or against day time running lights. State your assumptions and make a logical argument. Role play through a customer issue. Depending on the interviewer, this can be very involved and realistic. The interview is rigorous but does push a lot of the buttons. Staying calm, interested, helps. You have to have your basic skills down. V=IR will save you more often then you can imagine for the electrical problems.

    Interview Questions

    • Cannot remember difficulty. These things gloss over with time. So could not have been too terrible.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They do not negotiate for entry jobs.
