    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tripp Lite.

    Interview

    I applied online. Within a couple of hours I was contacted by HR and asked to complete some questions. I responded the next day and HR scheduled a phone call the next day. A week after the HR call I had a 1:1 interview with the hiring manager which was completely bizarre. The hiring manager talked down about the company and even said some negative things. The hiring manager asked me what I had heard about the company and when I said that I heard good things and some of the things that I had heard the hiring manager said sarcastically "yeah their loyal" then added a little laugh at the end. It made for an awkward pause after the comment. A week after the 1st interview I was asked for a second interview. It went ok. It wasn't hard. The hiring manager didn't seem to like the company so about a week after the 2nd interview I withdrew from the process and accepted another offer. The hiring manager seemed to be very unprofessional. I couldn't work for someone who hated their job that much.

    Engineering Administrative Assistant Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tripp Lite (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewing strategy had me shaking my head. Their website boasts that they are open and welcome to diversity, but I did not see or get this warm fuzzy feeling of acceptance when I initially walked in the door or during the entire interview process. However, I always try to give people and situations the benefit of the doubt and approached the interviewing process as positive as one could under the circumstances. I was interviewed by five people separately for four hours including the human resource person - this makes six. I was surprised the custodian did not interview me. The questions asked were mainly the same from person to person. At the end, the engineering director asked if I wanted to go to lunch. I was not sure if this was part of the interviewing process, but found this approach, awkward, unprofessional and it made me feel very uncomfortable. To make matters worse, I did not receive a reply to my interview until way after they reposted the position. The message essentially stated I was not qualified, but the truth of the matter is that I was well qualified for the position. My gut feelings as I walked through the door was that this company was not as welcoming and warm of an environment as they boast about on their website. Even if an offer of employment had been extended to me, I would have turned it down.

    Interview

    The process went along nicely until the interview. The hiring manager appeared to be distracted and their methond of screening an applicant's skills/competency for the position was....pre-historic..... I'd be specific, but the people were very nice -- and it appeared that something might have been going on behind the scenes that day (who doesn't have a bad day?).

    Interview

    I applied online and received a request for a phone screen by email one hour later. The phone screen was very easy and not really engaging. The HR Generalist told me that she'd just started in her position three weeks prior. She did screen my Linkedin. Overall friendly. Not a difficult interview. Very basic questions. I received an email stating I was not selected to go further in the interview process about a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • None. All very basic "tell me about a time when" questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tripp Lite (Chicago, IL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I met with the HR personnel after speaking with her on the phone to answer a few more questions and take a general IQ test. Then I met someone in a managerial role to speak about the position and see if I would be a good personality fit for the department. The next time more job-specific questions were asked and technical skills were tested. Skills were tested by various members in different interview steps (came to the office a total of two times following a phone interview)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tripp Lite (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and got a call for a phone interview (#1). The phone interview was pretty basic, typical interview questions. Couple days later, got a call for an in-person interview (#2). During this interview, I filled out pre-employment papers and took a hand-written test (basic math and English questions) before interviewing with the person that would be my supervisor. I was also given an assignment to complete (marketing project) that I would present at the next interview. A few days later, I was called for a 2nd in-person interview (#3). This was sort-of a laid-back interview with the same supervisor to discuss my project and answer additional questions. Total of 3 interviews, but it was worth it. Nice company to work for.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember a specific question, but they did ask a couple behavioral questions. Something like "Give me an example of a time when...." so just be prepared for that.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked for a higher salary and was given a "we will see what we can do." But I ended up taking the job before any serious negotiation took place.
