Test Engineering Intern Interview

Test Engineering Intern
La Vergne, TN

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Schneider Electric in November 2011.

Interview Details – Had an on-campus interview. There were no real technical questions; I was not required to write any code. I was mostly asked about my experience in classes and with projects at school, and how I would approach a particular problem. The interviewer was mostly concerned if I am a serious and a responsible person who is eager to learn. After this, I was required to complete a timed online test, testing my knowledge in different areas, ranging from history to mathematics. I thought I did not do that well, but I don't think it mattered. It was just a part of a process. After 2 weeks I got invited for a on-site interview. Again, there were no technical questions. I was introduced to the boss and my future co-workers. Shortly after that I got an internship offer.

Negotiation Details – It was an internship, so there was no negotiation.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Schneider Electric.

Interview Details – Kind of long process. One evening for dinner in Tennessee and induction and interviews on the following day. There were more than 150 people. I'm not sure how many positions were available though. Had to go through three rounds.

Interview Question – Not many technical questions. But you'll be out of answers before you meet the third interviewer because the questions all sound the same just rephrased. Mostly told I might be overqualified   View Answer

Operations Development Program Interview

Operations Development Program
Nashville, TN

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Schneider Electric in November 2012.

Interview Details – First round was 1:1 with HR. It covered the usual behavioral questions and they were very friendly.
Second round they have you take an online test then fly you out to one of their locations. There was a full day consisting of a tour, speakers, and three more interviews. One of these covered technical/professional aspects of the job so know your stuff. The job description will tell you what areas to study up on. Everyone was very pleasant and easy to talk to and it was an enjoyable experience.

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
Nashville, TN

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Schneider Electric in November 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was a lot faster than most companies I've dealt with. The recruiter from Chicago called me for a phone screening, then 2 days later set me up for a phone interview. After the phone interview, the hiring manager (Controller) wanted me to come in for a face-to-face (I live 2 hours away) and I ended up going about 9 days later. Interviewed with 5 people, the Controller, two other controllers, one department co-worker, and a business development guy that worked closely with the person in this position. Interviews went very well, unfortunately I just didn't have enough experience for the "Senior" level

Interview Question – Not really any difficult questions. Standard interview and get-to-know-you questions   Answer Question

Analyst Interview

Analyst
Nashville, TN

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Schneider Electric in April 2011.

Interview Details – I initially saw the posting on Indeed.com. Applied and never heard back. A month later I still saw the posting and began to contact HR contacts internal at Schneider. Eventually I received a call to set up an interview. I had one interview with the person who would be (is) my boss and the other was a consultant who works with the team.

The interviews were about 45 minutes each over the phone. Great questions, technical and review type questions. Very personable people and enthusiastic about their roles and the company. These interviews sold me on the job and I was excited to hear back from them.

It took about 3 weeks from the first interview to get the offer.

Seems like a great company, great mgmt and a great opportunity to grow my career.

Interview Question – Basic review of resume then technical questions related to my skillset.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, fair and competitive compensation.

Applications Engineer Interview

Applications Engineer
Nashville, TN

The process took a day - interviewed at Schneider Electric in March 2011.

Interview Details – This was a preliminary phone interview through my campus career center. It went very smoothly mostly consisting of simple questions and 4 complex behavioral questions. Was very conversational and recruiter quickly put me at ease. I have accepted a second round interview, and will update when the outcome of that is known. Would like a little more information on the position, had to get most of it from the recruiter.
