Program Manager Interview

Program Manager
Neenah, WI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Plexus in January 2009.

Interview Details – Company policy is to have you come in and do a Powerpoint presentation to management team on your background. Initial discussions were good and open, but on day of presentation I was not feeling well so likely did not look 100%. HR states that they give all candidates feedback on how things went, but this was not my experience. Only through the recruiter did I find out that they did not like that I looked "tired". I was just coming off surgery and not doing great that day. No one asked me if I was feeling OK, but I guess I could have explained but did not. Overall, they seem like an arrogant bunch.

Interview Question – They wanted information about my present employer (a competitor) more than anything.   View Answer

Director Interview

Director

The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Plexus in January 2010.

Interview Details – Very detailed and professional process. The phone interviews (two) were more strategic vs. tactical. A 45 minute presentation was required in front of a group of the hiring managers peers. Late arrivals by some of the group was disaapointing but the group was fair with their comments. 1:1 interviews with the peers leaned towards tactical questions and were 1/2 hour each and questions were repeated. Scheduling for these were a bit unorganized. In summary, the concept of the process is good but the execution could have been better. I suspect the hiring managers are still learning the process.

Interview Question – Describe a pefect vertical integration (VI) solution and follow with a VI solution that is destined to fail.   View Answer

Test Engineer Interview

Test Engineer
Neenah, WI

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Plexus in April 2010.

Interview Details – HR asked if I was interested and said I was qualified. Spoke to Recruiter, answered pre-screening questions. Took skills assessment test and the results were scored. After test, moved on to 1:1 Interview with Mgr, who asked why I was interested in the company, my background, what I like about Plexus and then some technical questions. HR was friendly and remembered me from previous internship. I felt comfortable speaking with anyone and the work culture is focused on employees and their satisfaction as well as making sure they reach their personal and career goals. Still awaiting feedback....

Mechanical Engineer II Interview

Mechanical Engineer II
Raleigh, NC

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Plexus in June 2010.

Interview Details – Went through a phone screen which was more of an informal background conversation than a technical screening. Went in for in person interview the next week, but was not very impressed with the whole operation. One interviewer kept getting calls on his cell phone. Many of the interviewers were very nice and seemed reasonable regarding their mix of personality and technical review and critique. The guy who appeared to be the "lead engineer" was a little arrogant, and I believe he must suffer ADD given his jumpy nature from subject to subject. The interview questions from the director level and management did not match the job description I was given, which I was not expecting. Interview took all day with no breaks other than lunch, and was a bit tiring by the end of the day. I left knowing they weren't interested in me, and I was not interested in them, unfortunately I wasted a vacation day to interview.
