I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at TE Connectivity (Harrisburg, PA) in June 2014.
Two short phone interviews. First with a recruiter, then with the hiring manager. After those went well, a site visit was requested, with 6 1 hour interviews with various managers in the organization I'd be working in. No interviewer lower than manager level. Questions were general architecture impressions, without any deep technical tests, or specific exam requirements. the 6 one hour interviews were effectively replicas on one another, each asking similar questions and doing a resume review.
- General Architectural approach questions, not deep technical review. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at TE Connectivity (Oceanside, CA).
The interview process consists of one screening phone interview then a 1-on-1 interview with the hiring manager. If the hiring manager likes you, you meet with his/her boss for an hour interview. Besides that there is really nothing much more to it. They do no background checks and I know lots of people who falsified their credentials to get a job at Oceanside. It clearly shows in the aptitude of your co-workers. Don't get me started about drug tests...

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day – interviewed at TE Connectivity (Rock Hill, SC) in May 2014.
Phone Interview was very pleasant and inquisitive. Interviewer ask great questions to help me display and promote my strengths. She answered all my questions as if I was already an employee. Very excited about the next step in the hiring process.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at TE Connectivity (Raleigh, NC).
Started with a traditional phone interviews where they stressed low pay. However, the position sounded like a potential fit and I continued to live interviews. In peer interviews I learned that they usually hire from within and that they had a strong internal candidate. By this point in the interview it seemed unlikely that they needed someone with my qualifications, so when very, very young HR managers showed up I asked all the traditional questions for practice- They were not able to answer the majority of my questions, but it was clear that they really were looking for cheap- no benefits that would have justified the low salary. Overall they seemed friendly and might be a good 'lifetime' opportunity.
- No difficult questions. In fact I was surprised at the lack of detail until I realized that this was a new role and they had very little experience with advanced marketing processes. Answer Question

I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at TE Connectivity (Harrisburg, PA).
Slow email communication back and forth. Took months to actually setup an interview. Very Informal. Sat with 5-6 different people at interview. Most did not know I was coming.

I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months – interviewed at TE Connectivity.
During a career fair at my school, I expressed my interest in TE Connectivity. About 4 or 5 months later, I received a call about an opportunity to interview for a summer internship. I'll admit that I went into this interview as unprepared as I've ever been, at the time I was kinda overwhelmed with school, which is no excus.

- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university – interviewed at TE Connectivity (Harrisburg, PA) in March 2014.
Met a TE Connectivity HR rep at an online career fair my university was holding in November. He reviewed my resume and we scheduled a call. I had a phone interview at the end of December and another in late January for two different internship positions before they had me come in for an in-person interview at their Harrisburg location. The interview took about 45 minutes and they said they would let me know in a week or two and the longer it took, the better for my chances. I ended up getting an email a couple of hours after the interview from the HR rep I had been talking to that said that they would be making me an official offer the next day.

Reasons for Declining
Everyone I met seemed friendly and it seemed like a great place to work, but I ended up declining the offer because I received an offer for a different position at another company that I was more interested in (IT Security).
