Advanced Finance Development Program Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Schneider Electric (DeKalb, IL) in September 2012.
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.
- The largest focus was on the ability to make decisions, the decision process, and ability to handle responsibility. 2 Answers

Had simple phone interview with basic behavioral and situation questions. Nothing tricky, very basic overall. Looking for candidate willing to travel and work in random suburbs around the country, rotation to different locations is required.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Schneider Electric in March 2012.
Advice before this interview would be to practice behavioral questions. I met a campus recruiter followed by a phone interview and then an on site interview that consisted of three one on one interviews. Every time I talked to an interviewer, they had plenty of behavioral questions. I felt that the office consisted mostly of nice people the last interviewer seemed to not care about the interviewee's perception but overall not a bad place. The only problem that I had was that they seemed too interested in some sort of grading scale to attain from the interviewee and never really tried to get a feel for the interviewee's personality.
