I applied through college or university - interviewed at Schneider Electric in March 2013.

Interview Details – I had an interview on campus with a recruiter. The interview focused mostly on my resume and about Schneider electric. I was invited to interview on site. There was a dinner the night before the interviews. The day consisted of 3 interviews, a tour, lunch, a brief presentation, and Q/A. Each interview consisted of a few behavioral questions. There were plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

Interview Question – Nothing really unexpected. Just general behavioral questions.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Schneider Electric in January 2013.

Interview Details – Quite long interview process. Went through the non typical university route, which appears to be the norm around here. Multiple phone interviews and then a face to face with 4 individuals. The whole process wasn't too bad. I was fairly informed through each step. There weren't long periods of no response/silence.

Interview Question – Basically talk about your previous experience. Mostly situational stuff and how you can handle it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Tried twice.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Schneider Electric in November 2011.

Interview Details – They fly you to the site and book you in a hotel. The next morning a shuttle comes to pick you up and take you to their facility. The day begins with a presentation regarding the company and its goals. Next, each department head gives a description of their department as well as the position available. (Interviews were for several positions.) Everyone is assigned an interviewer for a specified amount of time. The first interviewer asked generic behavioral questions. The next interviewer asked more technical questions regarding your resume. The last interviewer asked academic questions about classes taken as well as extra curricular activities. Next, you have lunch and get the chance to sit and talk with all of the interviewers to ask questions. Finally, you take a tour of the facility.

The process took a day - interviewed at Schneider Electric in October 2011.

Interview Details – Only got to the HR interview which was very stress-free in my opinion. They only asked what kind role you usually play in teams/groups projects. The interviewer was really friendly and asked me the usual stuff like what were my strong and weak points. Biggest thing they were looking for is if you are willing to relocate. They offer relocation packages which was nice.

Interview Question – What makes you better than the other applicants.   Answer Question
