I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Methode Electronics.

Interview Details – Just one interview. Met with 3 different people at the interview. Had to be hired contract because going through the company's HR takes too long.

Resident Engineer Interview

Resident Engineer
Southfield, MI

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Methode Electronics in January 2014.

Interview Details – An offer was made the day of the interview which was later rescinded via the executive approval process. Advice: Although it makes logical sense, interviewing personnel should be more thorough to ensure they are getting the right candidate. Apparently making quick decisions and then revoking the effort is a better option.

Interview Question – No difficult questions when you're interviewing for a position you have experience in.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The offer was made with the salary I had indicated I would accept with an increase after 90 days plus a car allowance.

Senior Engineer Interview

Senior Engineer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Methode Electronics.

Interview Details – This company is with very poor management and very low efficiency.

Interview Question – They asked me to go for an on-site interview, and they didn't book me a flight ticket until the afternoon before the travelling day. To save money, they put me in a 24 hour-non-stop itinerary, just try to avoid a hotel cost! you can imagine how cheap this company is. It took one and half month for them to send out the offer letter after they made decision. What employer would do that? If you want to hire someone, you need be quick.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – they don't want to offer much money and keep lowering the package, after I singed the offer letter, half year later, they rescinded the offer. Never bother with this company
