    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Siemens in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, I stop the interview process after the phone interview. The recruiter was unprepared and very rude. That told me about the company culture right there. The phone interview was not an interview just a screening process, where the recruiter clearly hadn't even looked over my resume.

    Question asked-

    Are you employed?
    What is your current/ last salary?
    Can you give me a specify number?
    What is your expected salary ?

    Financial Leadership Development Program Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Siemens in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had an on campus interview for the Leadership Development Program internship. The interview was extremely standardized questions where the interviewer asked them and then simply typed down my answers. These forms of interviews are generally held to eliminate opportunity for discrimination. My interviewer was the head of the LDP program and was extremely informative when I asked questions about the program.

    Negotiation Details
    They had a standardized rate that all interns made. They called me then emailed me an offer letter with salary, star/end date, etc already in there. It was not really negotiable. However, they were extremely flexible with start/end dates because I am still a student. Additionally they worked with my schedule to plan on boarding, drug testing, etc.

    Senior Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Wendell, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wendell, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Siemens in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call from the scheduler and scheduled an onsite interview direct without any phone interview. Flew in from Minneapolis to North Carolina. Had a 3 hour onsite interview. One with the hiring manager, Second one with the Engineering Manager and the 3rd one with the director. They all seemed pretty cool. Since my job was more like a lateral move interview questions were more on how I solved problems in my current role. While in onsite I got a pretty good idea they were going to hire me. The process after the onsite interview was what drew me away from the company. They took one and half months to come with a response. They came with an offer for Application engineer. I was not happy that they interviewed me for Sr engineer position and then offered me a different position. They said company budgets is not sufficient for Sr Engineer position. Well I am a Sr Engineer now, so I asked them if they wanted me to take a demotion. No proper response either. Even the salary was the same as I am getting paid now. On top, I was shocked to learn that Siemens did not have any bonuses or pension plan. So I had to decline the offer.

    Long full day interview that will be professional but at the same time pretty laid back and easy going. 90% of the questions are pulled from an HR booklet and should be easy to answer.

    I have not had the chance to go through a normal hiring process. My position was absorbed by Siemens when the facility that I work at outsourced positions. From applying to positions internally you rarely get a response to positions that you apply to. That is for an internal canidate so I can only imagine what an external canidate goes through.
