    Anonymous Employee in Ames, IA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Sauer-Danfoss in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had a telephone interview with the recruiter who contacted me, followed by a telephone interview with the engineering manager, followed by a visit to the Danfoss Power Solutions facility in Ames, IA.

    Was not offered job, they are still looking to hire as of April 18, 2014. Was surprised on not being offered - they got back immediately in a week, through the recruiter. Was not given clear reasons, except something vague and evasive along the lines of 'you are not adding anything particularly new to the team'.

    Interview Questions
    • Difficult technical Q : Was asked to predict what would happen in a load-sensing hydraulic circuit under various conditions.
      Unexpected behavioral Q : what is a quality in you that someone you love the most, cringes at?
