    Hardware Engineer (Entry Level) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schneider Electric (Charlotte, NC) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied for an entry level position which was not entry level. The requirements were for an established engineer at mid level experience level. Additionally they were looking for an mechanical/computer/electric engineer as one, later they changed the requirements since they couldn't find anybody to fill the position with all the requirements asked by HR. Received an email from HR to do an interview by following an link to set it up. I had no idea that the interview would consist of me recording myself and answering questions. They give you 30-60 seconds to read the question and then your answer would be recorded (video and sound). I hated it so much since there was no human interaction. It's very annoying to have to record yourself and basically talk to yourself and you have to look at yourself the whole time you talking. They have an office very close in the town I live in, not sure why they just didn't have HR call me from that office.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Schneider Electric in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and had to do this digital interview where you basically are fed questions, and then you have to record your answer via webcam with the site they provide. Questions were mostly behavioral - passed this section pretty easily. I was then contacted by HR to go for an on-site interview and tour. I was interviewed by a Senior ME and ME manager. Interview had some HR-behavioral questions, then had more questions that were related to by resume and my personal experiences.

    • Last question was, why should we hire you? Pretty generic question but it was the last question asked for me.   Answer Question
