    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Plexus.

    Interview

    Started the process by showing up to a campus recruiting session. Gave them my resume and I had a phone call within the week from their area recruiter. I then had an on campus interview for about 45 minutes and a week later a phone interview followed for about 30 minutes. The questions were mostly non-technical but some did revolve around basic engineering topics. If you have a lower GPA, they will grill you on it. As long as you can defend your GPA you will be fine.

    Interview Questions

    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Plexus.

    Interview

    was young and looking to move West to enjoy the Rocky Mountains. The hiring engagement was pretty straight forward. The initial HR representative that I spoke to seemed a bit unpolished, but once you get through to a hiring manger it is much better. For electrical engineering positions you should expect a standard battery of technical questions starting from basic to more advanced – dust off you college text books. People were friendly and seemed to like their jobs. It took a long time for them to tell me one way or another if I got the job. I did not appreciate that.

    Interview Questions

    • A standard set of technical questions starting from basic to more advanced and an informal lunch for asking questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Plexus (Buffalo Grove, IL).

    Interview

    Phone interview and two on-site visits. HR intern handled most of the arrangements. Good impressions, site does a very good job of house-keeping, which provides a deceptively good impression. Staff is very well qualified; however, middle to upper management a slight smug.

    Interview Questions

    • Heavily regulated by the FDA and ISO, have familiarity with these as they relate to the medical sector. Obviously, level of familiarity should be commensurate to the position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very open, however, I had a previous professional relationship w/ the hiring manager and so it was not antagonistic in the least.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Plexus (Neenah, WI).

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter at a career fair, then the next day (or 2 days later) had an interview on campus. Pretty routine interview asking me about my resume and experiences. He said he'd recommend me for the next step, and a week or two later I got an email from them. I drove out to Neenah WI (they paid for gas and the hotel), and had an all day interview consisting of a tour, meeting with HR (they went over benefits, which I thought was really weird), and a couple of skills tests. One test was about the software process (requirements, design, implementation, etc), and one was a programming test. They said they had the same test for all skill levels, and I missed a fair amount of questions. Got an offer a week later via email.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you think I want to hear Had other skills questions   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    They only gave me about a week to decide, the offer was quite a bit lower than others I had gotten (though still quite reasonable), and it was out in Neenah WI - I got a job closer to home

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Plexus (Neenah, WI) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview was brief and to the point. Prior experience, company values - overall just a screening. Tour of the company followed at my next visit. The premises are impressive on the manufacturing floor. In person interview was quite difficult. Round-Robin style group interview took place after I took 15 minutes to present myself and my prior experiences. The group interview was difficult mainly because each interviewer had a specific set of questions to ask, and each question could compound off the previous answer you gave. Be careful with what examples that you use from your previous experience. Technical questions were present but minimal for an engineering position. Total time elapsed for the interview was 1 hour 30 minutes.
