    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Schneider Electric (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Initial meeting at campus career fair, follow up one-on-one interview the next day. Second round interview at a larger branch. Both interviews were primarily behavioral based. It took two full days to complete the second round (regional) interview, as the first day included dinner and a talk from some higher level management; the second day included an office tour, explanation of benefits and a panel interview; most panels were only two or three members, however.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you were not able to fix a problem. Why were you not able to? What did you wind up doing?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation is limited for a new hire out of college, but they offer more than fair benefits to begin with.

    Applied through campus career center, had one interview there and then moved onto a regional final interview event.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Schneider Electric (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I did this interview at my university's campus. It was a one-on-one interview. The person interviewing me was a Plant Manager, so she wasn't too familiar with the position I was interviewing for. It was all behavioral questions. The interviewer spent most of the time taking notes of my responses, but she was very helpful in answering my questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Schneider Electric in October 2013.

    Interview

    Initially started with a 1:1 interview at my university with a local recruiter. Was referred and received an invite to attend a undergraduate recruiting event in a nearby city. Went to an Undergraduate Recruiting event and arrived the day before the interviews were to be performed. The night of my arrival, there was a dinner at which there was a speech about the company in general as well as time to talk with the fellow candidates and a few employees they stationed at each table. The employees were available and friendly, seeming to emphasize how the people of the company make it great; while also mentioning the importance of the task at hand. The following day was one filled with a 2 on 1 interview (where the two employees asked me questions specifically targeted at my resume), plant tour, presentations (benefits, more about Schneider Electric, etc), and a Q&A with the recruiter to answer more general questions (not ones targeted towards job position, requirements, etc). We were also supplied lunch (breakfast had been optional). Both days were hosted in the hotel where all the candidates were staying, making it very convenient to get prepared. The culture seemed to be hugely influenced by the fellow employees.
