    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    3 interviews. Relaxed questioning over experience. One should sound intelligent and knowledgeable, as worldly as possible as this is an engineering company with a global network of employees. They tend to prefer mature individuals who are generally kind and easy to work with.

    Very positive interview process. People very nice. Gave a seminar. Was asked multiple coding questions based on my language of choice. Work culture undergoing a lot of change. No office, all shares space, which can be a possible downside.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with a recruiter at the involvement fair and was offered an interview for the next day. My interview was with the recruiter who I spoke with and we discussed the program, different assessments of leadership styles and past experiences with leading projects. All in all it was a pretty typical interview.
    My only problem was that I was told I would be hearing back (regardless of offer or not) in 3 weeks after the interview and after a month I contacted the recruiter who told me I would be hearing back shortly. I still have not heard back and it has been 10 weeks since the interview. Very unprofessional for such an esteemed company and I was obviously more inclined to explore my other offers.

    Interview Details

    Ok. Fairly easy questions, but be prepared to back up your insights with real-world examples. They'll probe. Also be sure to have references handy. And don't expect feedback from hr or the hiring manager soon afterwards. It's a big company, which can mean the hiring process typically takes several weeks or more.

    ELDP Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Siemens.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was about 45 minutes; behavioral questions were asked and there was one challenging question that involved an unexpected way of thinking about a presented real-world situation. Typical behavioral questions include: Tell about a time where you encountered a difficult group member and explain how you sought to resolve that conflict. Additional questions were tailored to the program specifically; questions were asked about location rotations as well as the time needed for separate projects completed during the rotation.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was about where I saw myself in 20 years. I really had not thought that far ahead and ended up pausing for a few minutes before I could muster up the honest answer which is that I had no plan at the moment but would contemplate that more closely upon graduation.   Answer Question
