    Had interviews, followed up several weeks later, never heard anything back. Felt like they had no understanding of the candidate they were looking for other than someone who has experience who will work for cheap.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sensata in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Talked to Sensata at career fair, received an on campus interview, pretty straightforward. Asked basic circuit fundamentals. Invited to 2nd round interview at their main facility in Attleboro. Had 3 technical interviews, 1 HR interview. Asked about current and voltage through a charging discharging capacitor, opamps, and resistive networks. 1st interviewer told me they weren't looking for EE's in programming, rather EE/ME integration. Wish I had known that going in.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sensata.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited from a career fair at my university and invited to attend the Fantastic Friday event. There were 4 interviews--3 technical and 1 with an HR rep. During 2 of the 3 technical interviews, the interviewers were texting/looking at their phones while I was speaking which was incredibly rude!

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Sensata.

    Interview Details

    I reached out to a recruiter on campus following my career fair. I was called in for an interview with a current member of the engineering team at Sensata. He was very cordial but did not try to sell the company very hard. I believe I did fairly poorly in the interview because it was one of the first ones that I had as an undergraduate. I did not get any second round interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sensata.

    Interview Details

    Had an on campus interview after applying through my school website. The process was very efficient. It was mostly technical questions from basic circuits, but there were some trickier questions asked. Didn't go over my resume as much as expected. Asked questions about impedance, filters, op-amps, etc. Reviewing introductory circuits would be good for the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked how a transformer worked, which I covered in physics two years ago; and haven't looked at since.   Answer Question

    On-campus interview as a part of career fair. This interview was mainly technical focused on Op-amps.

There were four rounds of technical interviews (each for about half an hour) followed by a quick HR round and company visit. The interview questions were pretty easy and related to basic analog building blocks.
