Interview Question – The dreaded, "Tell me about yourself" View Answer
I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Rockwell Automation in March 2013.
Interview Details – The interview process was just amazing and smooth. It all started with an email by the hiring manager and a time for a phone interview was set up. I had a phone interview that lasted for about 30 minutes. The hiring manager asked me questions based on my experience and education and some technical questions based on PLCs and HMIs. I was called for an on-site interview which was scheduled for about 2 weeks after the phone interview.
I had 3 panel interviews of 45 minutes duration each. The first round was with the hiring manager and one of his team members. I was asked questions based on my prior work experience and why I wanted to work for this position. The second interview (I guess this is the only one that went bad for me) was on programming skills. Given that I did not have much embedded systems programming experience, I did face some difficulties here. Moreover, this wasn't an entry-level position (though I wish it would have been). The third round was again a mix of technical questions and personality related questions. I answered questions based on polymorphism, abstract classes, etc.
I then had a wind up conversation with the hiring manager where my availability and salary expectations were discussed.
I got a feedback two weeks following the on-site interview where the hiring manager said that they were overall quite impressed with my work experience but at the same time they needed someone with more programming skills, which I acknowledge I lacked to some extent given that this is NOT an entry level position. I feel my chances would have been good had this been an entry level position. What impressed me was that the process was smooth and they did not take long in arriving at a decision. A "no" is a good answer, better than waiting for an answer for over 2 months (I've had that experience too).

Negotiation Details – Nothing to Negotiate.
I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Rockwell Automation in November 2009.
Interview Details – Tried on line application multiple times. But since RA is full of lazy, stupid managers these applications were totally ignored.Finally found out that I could get in through a temp. agency which they do to almost everyone so they can pay you below average wages and no benefits for up to and past a year. Then they hire you in for one of the lowest wages in the industry in the area. The contract cleaning people at this $6B/yr company make more than the entry level high tech workers! What a bunch of cheap prostitutes. But what do you expect from a corporation based in an anti worker, anti middle class state.
