Engineer I Interview

Anonymous Employee
Menlo Park, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at TE Connectivity in December 2010.

Interview Details – 1) On-campus recruiting interview
2) University recruiting interview in Harrisburg, PA
3) 1 hr. phone interview with employee in Menlo Park, CA
4) 6 hr. on-site interview in Menlo Park
5) 1 hr. phone interview
6) Offer!

They asked mostly behavioral questions and past experience questions. I had fairly easy and straightforward interviews with everyone I talked to. For the six hour on-site interview, I talked to six different people all for an hour each. Many of their questions were repeated as there isn't much planning put into interviews on their end.

Interview Question – No technical questions, so nothing was too difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I regret not negotiating more. They wouldn't negotiate on vacation time (2 weeks), but many coworkers were able to negotiate salary.

Senior Training Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Portland, OR

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at TE Connectivity in January 2011.

Interview Details – I received a single initial phone call scheduling the interview. I met with one of the HR specialists who spent about 30 minutes asking me some exceptionally general questions about my background. It was clear she had no knowledge of what my skill set really needed to be to do the job. After the interview, she introduced me to the manager of HR and told me I would hear from them within the week. By the time I got home there was a message offering me the position.

Interview Question – What exactly is the ADDIE methodology and how would you apply that in creating training in a manufacturing setting?   Answer Question
