    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Schindler Elevator Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I was first told to take an exam before the phone interview. After spending some time working on the exam and getting ready for the interview, I received a phone call form the HR director asking me about my experience, and after discussing exactly what I had on resume, he decided that I didn't have enough experience for the position.
    It was very unprofessional and surprising to see that he wasn't aware of what I had on my resume until we spoke. He basically told me to take the exam regardless and decided to learn more about me during the phone interview. It was unprofessional and a waste of time.

    Superintendent Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Schindler Elevator Corporation in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very straight forward hiring process. Three interviews w/ the district manager and 2 regional VP. All of the questions were very direct and predictable. They offered me the opportunity to do a "ride along" w/ someone in a similar position to get a feel for the position. The entire process was low key and I felt like the were looking for the best candidate and not interested in games.

    Electrical Engineering Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Morristown, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Morristown, NJ
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Schindler Elevator Corporation in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school's career website and received a call for an interview few days later. The interview was schedules for 12:30pm in Morristown,NJ. I arrived 30 minutes early and waited to be received. I was first interviewed by an HR rep which was cool and easy. She just asked me questions as it relates to my resume. Then I was interviewed by the Manager of Operations.He was something else. We went in depth with my resume and asked several questions about my project and internship experiences. Just when I thought the interview was coming to an end, he pulled out two sheets of technical problems he wanted me to solve. What? For an internship? No way! Anyway, the questions weren't hard, but for someone who haven't seen this kind of material for almost two years, I was a little lost. However I picked up after few trails. One sheet contained three rectifier questions and the other had two c++ questions.
    Overall the interview was something new and different, as far technical questions were concerned but any behavioral related question was a piece of cake.

    Interview Questions
    • Draw the voltage output signal if a Sine wave voltage signal was inputed in a circuit with a half-rectifier ?   Answer Question
    • Draw the voltage output signal if a Sine wave voltage signal was inputed in a circuit with a full-rectifier ?   Answer Question
