Sales Development Program Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Schneider Electric in January 2012.

Interview Details – Interviewed on campus in October 1:1 with local sales engineer. The interview was very relaxed, all behavioral questions. After 2 weeks received email to take "Achiever Test." Another 2 weeks later received another email about still being in consideration but they would not make a decision until the end of the year. Received an invitation in early December to attend the on-site interview at the end of January. They hosted a dinner at the hotel the night before which was relaxed and a good chance to meet people both applying for the program and current employees. The next morning consisted of three 1:1 interviews with sales engineers/managers, again behavioral questions. Because of bad weather, some of the activities such as a tour of the facility were cut short to allow people more time for travel. Overall a really good environment and the event was put together very well.
