Mechanical Engineer Interview

Mechanical Engineer

I applied online and interviewed at Schneider Electric.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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

Mechanical Engineer
UCLA, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Schneider Electric in October 2013.

Interview Details – 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.
