    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Fort Collins, CO) in September 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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   1 Answer
