    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norcross, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norcross, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Siemens Energy & Automation in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was arranged with an internal recruiter with no expectations of what the interview would consist of besides that it would be five 30 minute interviews with individuals. There was no mention of the role of the interviewers.

    The one on one interviews were with people with different responsibilities. There was no expectation of what the process would be from person to person. Each interview was very different.

    The real difficulty was short exposure to different people and not being able to build on your conversations since in 30 minutes you start again from hello.
