    Applied through campus career center, had one interview there and then moved onto a regional final interview event.

The final interview consisted of a panel interview, a case study (more of an activity to see how you work with others).

    Advanced Finance Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in DeKalb, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in DeKalb, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 Questions
    • The largest focus was on the ability to make decisions, the decision process, and ability to handle responsibility.   View Answers (2)

    Business Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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...

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