Electrical Engineer Interview

Electrical Engineer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Schneider Electric.

Interview Details – A short phone review with the recruiter lead to a phone interview with the hiring manager the next day. A 1:1 was offered during that review, and the flight was scheduled after a holiday weekend.
The interview included heads of five departments (Sales, Marketing, Engineering, Operations, Manufacturing). It was amiable and thorough regarding professional skills and background. Was introduced to the associated personnel (about 20). Hiring manager took the afternoon to escort me around the area to see the various sights and location advantages (e.g. ski resorts).
Offer came two days later.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here? This was an industry in which I had no direct experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Nonexistent. The offer was at the upper end of the allowable range.

Electrical Engineer Interview

Electrical Engineer
Fort Collins, CO

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Schneider Electric in September 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted through my school's career center and invited to schedule an interview with Schneider. The interview was extremely general and not for any specific job position, just a very preliminary interview.

The interviewer spent the entire time looking at his computer screen, typing in my responses to his questions very slowly and asking me to repeat several times. The result was very disconcerting and threw me off balance.

There were no technical questions, this was purely a behavioral interview.

Interview Question – Name your best and worst decision this year   Answer Question

Electrical Engineer Interview

Electrical Engineer
Nashville, TN

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Schneider Electric.

Interview Details – Kind of long process. One evening for dinner in Tennessee and induction and interviews on the following day. There were more than 150 people. I'm not sure how many positions were available though. Had to go through three rounds.

Interview Question – Not many technical questions. But you'll be out of answers before you meet the third interviewer because the questions all sound the same just rephrased. Mostly told I might be overqualified   View Answer
