Senior Mechanical Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Senior Mechanical Manufacturing Engineer
Flanders, NJ

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied for position on Siemens website. A month and a half later, I get a phone call out of the blue from Siemens HR asking if I'm available to visit Flanders next week for in person interviews. The interview consisted of four 45 minute interviews with two managers, an HR person, and a senior engineer. The managers asked behavioral and experience based questions, the HR manager wanted to know why I choose Siemens and asked questions about my previous employer and why I was looking to make a change. The interview with the senior engineer was more of a tour of the facility and the most informative and fun part of tour since we treated each other as seasoned professionals instead of the usual interviewer/interviewee dynamic.

Interview Question – Mostly behavioral based questions with a few experience questions sprinkled in.   Answer Question

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Sacramento, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics in June 2013.

Interview Details – 2 phone interviews then on site interview.
*1 technical panel interview (3 engineers panel) and 4 one-to-one interviews: General question about coding of C language on embedded real time operating system (RTOS). stack, heap, interrupt handling, memory leak prevention, resource sharing...etc I believed I answered very well.
*1 behavior panel interview composed of 5 managers/directors: Manager asked all job related questions about how do I worked with a cross functional team, am I a tem player? What happen if I were behind schedule? Do I feel comfortable to mentor less experience engineer? and based on my answer followed up by more and more questions. One thing I noticed is if you answer the question incorrectly or NOT SO SURE, the subsequent questions is going to more difficult and make you hope you didn't answer the previous one earlier. This is my first behavior panel interview I believe I didn't behave the way I want it to be and I didn't get an offer because of that regardless technically I perform very well.
