    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Watlow Electric Manufacturing.

    Interview Details

    Long and overkill. I though I was interviewing for a job in the intelligence agency. 3 people and 2 groups of them interviewed me. They had a bunch of premade questions to give me and it took forever to complete. Some questions were also pretty close from group to group. Like they were trying to catch me on my answers.

    Multiple sessions and so many scenarios. Multiple screenings and verifications. I thought I was applying to the CIA after awhile. All these jumping through hoops for the pay level was funny in hind sight. They should have been happy to get someone with that pay level

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Watlow Electric Manufacturing in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met them in the campus career fair. Then was invited to campus interview. All the questions were behavioral and got to know more about the company and rotational program.
    Invited to a second interview in St Louis. Had a social the night before the interview, there were many senior level management staff, senior engineers, and alumni from the rotational program. The next day is the interview, and we also got to tour their facility. It was surprising to see the company CEO showing up for the interview process, it shows that the company really cares about this program.
    3 rounds of interview, mostly behavioral but they also ask in detail of your previous technical projects so make sure to remember all the details.

    It was a great overall experience, everyone seems to know each other and they really care if you are having a good time during the whole process.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Watlow Electric Manufacturing in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Sat in a room with two people. They had me ask questions before the interview instead of after. Then they just went through a list of behavioral questions. One person asked the questions and the other wrote the answer down. Very impersonal interview made it difficult for me since there was no way to get a real conversation going. But if you just memorize standard answers to standard behavioral questions you'll be fine.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Watlow Electric Manufacturing in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The HR recruiter called first to ensure that I would be willing to interview for this position even though the salary was lower. I explained that I often return real value ($$) in my roles and still wanted to continue looking into the opportunity. A phone interview was arranged with the IT Director out of St. Louis. It lasted about 2 hours. We discussed the challenges in the job, the IT organization, the business, IT strategy (or lack of it), people, etc. He was very gracious and open in the conversation which enabled me to make a clear assessment of the position.
