    Mechanical Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sensata.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions are pretty basic as I was only a sophomore at that time.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sensata in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    There were 4 interviewers for each candidate. Each of them were asking different theme of questions. For instance, in my case, the first interviewer asked me about digital and analogue basic, 2nd asked about board level specifics, 3rd asked about high school physics and the last one was the HR asking about my ambitions and stuff like that.

    Interview Questions
    • Some major questions are really hard for me, I can't really remember. One question I think most of the employers will ask is: where do you picture yourself for the next five years.   Answer Question
