Senior Scientist Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Siemens.
Interview Details – This is the most unprofessional and rude interview I have ever had. The whole process was pretty typical, HR phone screening, HM phone screening and then onsite. Several things made me really disappointed at Siemens diagnostic, once my dream company.
During the onsite interview, someone indirectly asked my sexual orientation; Someone would laugh quite a few times whenever I did not give the right answer and told me right away that question was so simple. More outrageously, he would paraphrase my question even if I gave the right answer. I had another friend who was also interviewed at the same group. The same guy told her her research was useless. It took three month to get my reimbursement and they made a mistake and it took another month to reimburse me with the right amount. Their site is like a big factory and has a very untasty cafe.
Other interviewers were good, I have to say. Later I know, this rude guy had a friend who was also being interviewed at the same time.
Interview Question – Not too many unexpected questions...some basic knowledge and some behavior questions Answer Question
Healthcare IT Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Siemens in November 2013.
Interview Details – I had a three step process for interviewing for this position. I was already a Siemens employee and applied through the internal job website. Two phone interviews and one in person interview conducted. The company is so large that the interview process is determined heavily on the manager that is hiring. Majority of communication is done through the HR department.
Interview Question – Most places tend to ask me what my greatest weakness is. How I handled a difficult situation. What happened the last time I made a mistake. Do I take responsibility for my mistakes, ect. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They would not negotiate. Gave me a 7% increase from my previous position, which ended up being a minimal increase that was less than I should be making according to the chart that they release about the positions market value. Very disappointing.
IT Business Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Siemens in January 2010.

And expect to jump through last minute hoops if you are wanting a position. Last minute meetings and calls were the norm.
Have References ready, you will need them. And an employee referral will help with the process.
Interview Question – Found this one a bit "touchy". The question was "What do you see as something that could interfere with traveling for work?"
Felt it was a bit intrusive the way it was asked. I felt they were asking too much about my personal life. View Answer
