I applied through an employee referral and the process took 12 months - interviewed at Schneider Electric in April 2013.

Finally was sent to Chicago for a two day interview process with about 200 other applicants. 3 one on one interviews and then a group interview.

Interview Question – No real diffeicult questions. They mostly wanted to hear about my internship experance and my education.   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Advanced Finance Development Program Interview

Advanced Finance Development Program
DeKalb, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Schneider Electric in September 2012.

Interview Details – 1st interview was an hour long and very standard. Started with usual "Tell me about yourself". Asked about what you knew about Schneider Electric - not too technical though.

The first half of the interview was a focus on items on my resume. Second half was a standard behavioral interview. Situation, action and result. This program has a strong emphasis on making decisions and taking a lot of responsibilities soon after starting. Coming right out of college, this wasn't something I had a lot of great stories on.

Interview Question – The largest focus was on the ability to make decisions, the decision process, and ability to handle responsibility.   View Answers (2)

Very Easy Interview

Business Director Interview

Business Director
Chicago, IL

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Schneider Electric in November 2011.

Interview Details – The process was a joke. The hiring manager had his assistant print out a list of standard interview questions to ask me. (I'm a current employee and have worked for this hiring manager for 4 years)

None of the questions asked were relevant to the job that I applied for. I'm sure other departments are better, but this one is led by a very self centered manager who really doesn't care about the employees in his department.

Position remains vacant...

Interview Question – Just google interview questions and you'll see the list of 20 questions this incompetent hiring manager asked me :~)   Answer Question
