Interview

It was an on campus interview conducted at my school. Very behavioral and basic questions. It went really smoothly and was easy-going. The person who interviewed me told me a lot about his job (I asked) and he was very friendly. It was good to know a few things about the company, but mostly good to have some past experiences to talk about.

    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.

    Interview Questions

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

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview

    The usual interview process was a phone screen, another telephonic interview with a manager and if a successful candidate, would be called for an on-site interview.
    I had phone screening with Schneider Electric for an engineering position. The recruiter was very kind and nice and asked very good questions about me pertaining to their requirements.
    There were few basic questions were:
    1) Tell me something about yourself.
    2) Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
    3) What did you do in your internship with XYZ company ?
    4) What kind of CAD softwares you're familiar with and how is your expertise on those softwares?
    5) I see you have done some excellent projects in your academic as well as professional career. Can you please elaborate on those projects?
    6) Have you had any chance of showing your leadership skills or Have you in your past lead a team to go on and complete the task ?

    There were few other questions which I cant recall. But, the level of difficulty was the same as these questions.
    Phone interview lasted for about 30-40 minutes, where you get a chance to speak up about you and your accomplishments and also the recruiter will share the company details, products and what is that they are expecting from the candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were straight and relating to you. So, if you know yourself very well, it should be an easy task for you.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Schneider Electric (UCLA, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter after a university job fair. Interviewer was personable, but read off of a list of online questions and recorded my answers, so it was less of an interview and more of a one on one job application. The questions were mostly on my personality and past projects.
