    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Schneider Electric in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter, who did a short phone screen. Then the recruiter sent me a link to a video interview website to do an interview where I'd answer a series of questions using my webcam. The website was a bit odd and kept disconnecting during the middle of questions, so whoever watched my interview must have assumed I was a bumbling idiot. A personal, face-to-face interview seemed to me to be a much better option, since the company was literally down the road from my apartment. I never heard back from the company about the status of my application.

    The questions were very standard and non-technical. For example: "What is one thing you've accomplished during the past year that you're the most proud of?".

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

    Interview Details

    Was mainly an HR interview with a lot of focus on decision making ability. The process was an hour long. And the recruitment was not for a particular position. The company is really good, with good employee satisfaction. So I was very focused on it.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with a Schneider Electric representative at my college career fair. Was called for a first round interview with a woman from HR. Simple conversational and basic behavioral questions. Got a call to travel to Costa Mesa, CA for final round interviews. It was a 3 day event that shed light on the company and benefits. I was interviewed by 2 people, one asking the questions and the other typing on the computer. I didn't have a specific role I was interviewing for. The interviewer assessed my resume and talents to see what position I would be the best fit for. Got a call from HR within a couple days and was offered the position. Hire was dependent upon the following background check and drug screen through HireRight.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Schneider Electric in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went through university recruiting and the process was very straightforward. I had a 1:1 interview, on campus, basically walking through my resume. Next I had an on site interview about a month later, where I had a group interview where I went through my resume again and was asked common behavioral questions. I had one last phone interview for a job relocation, and the job description that was made clear to me was not the actual job I'm doing- which is very frustrating.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Schneider Electric in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with the human resource person twice about expereince, background and also required to answer 5 questions which were emailed. Was asked what my current compensation was and thne was informed that they would easily exceed what I was currently making. I felt that I was a good candidate as this person showed great interest in me. I was also required to submit a job application which took a little time to do. Through the process I was made to feel that I was a good candidate for the position. After an initial flurry of activity, I never heard from the HR person and subsequent phone calls and emails went unanswered as I was requesting status. Truly very unprofessional

    • The only questions that I answered was a questionaire asking basic questions about my accomplishments, why I would be the right employee and general question like that   View Answer
