I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Sensata (Attleboro, MA).
On-campus interview as a part of career fair. This interview was mainly technical focused on Op-amps.
Selected candidates were called for a Fantastic Friday event at the Attleboro center where the process was a day long. 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.

The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Sensata.
I first talked to someone and handed my resume to someone at a career fair at my school. I received a call a scheduled a preliminary interview on campus. It went well and then I received a invitation to come to their headquarters for the "Fantastic Friday". It was indeed on Friday, during the fall school year so I could not attend the first two, luckily there was a third "Fantastic Friday" I could attend. It was kinda grueling Friday, with 4 interviews with; 3 with engineers who basically verbally give you an engineering exam, and 1 with someone from HR.

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sensata.
The interviewer was late to the call and seemed unprepared. He asked very oddly structured questions which seemed intent on catching you, as opposed to seeing what you know.

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Sensata (Attleboro, MA) in May 2014.
I received a very rude phone call from the HR "Professional" doing the first screening interview. All he wanted to know was the yearly revenue of the current company I worked for and also asked me where was my accent from. Then without asking any other question he told me that I was definitively not what they where looking for and that he had no more questions for me. It seriously was a 2 minutes very demeaning and almost raciest two questions conversation.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Sensata.
Went through a college career fair, got an interview without asking, and then went through an on-campus interview session. Got invited to Fantastic Friday along with 30 other people and went through 4 interviews, 3 engineering and 1 HR. Mostly everyone was friendly, overwhelmingly male, and one of the interviewers was ridiculously difficult and unhelpful. Had a tour of the campus, which was nice. Nothing too special, but they ask thermo, electrical, fluids, calculus, and design questions. Some interviewers may help you through them, others will not.
- Nothing was difficult or unexpected, everything was the generic engineering questions and some common HR questions. Answer Question
- No OfferNo Offer
There are four interviews in total, three of them are hold by the technique engineer and the other one is HR. I was stuck on the first manager's question and feel really bad about the conversation, that might be the reason I did not receive the offer. The HR is a really nice woman, I did have a good conversation with her.
- Most of the questions are pretty basic as I was only a sophomore at that time. Answer Question

On campus hiring process. Interview was simple, just basic electronics questions were asked. The interviewer went through a few of the projects on my resume.

Difference between BJT and FET.

After the career fair, I got a on-campus interview from sensata. They asked me questions about heat transfer, how does engine works and thermodynamics. Also asked about my previous project and let me ask some questions about the company. The question are not that hard if you understand, it's hard to prepare because they are in different fields.
