    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Belden (Lafayette, IN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter at a university career fair. Each recruiter was very friendly, and I got invited to interview the next day on campus. The interview was mainly behavioral questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Belden (Saint Louis, MO) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my university website. Had a phone interview. All the questions were behavioral in nature. It seemed like a rapid fire interview. The interviewer asked me atleast 15-20 questions in 25 minutes. Several times, he asked me to answer the questions briefly. No technical questions were asked. Several questions required me to answer in just a yes or a no.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Belden in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very positive experience from my initial conversation with Shannon from Belden's in-house recruiting department, 2 1/2 week interview process, to the offer letter. Everyone I spoke with was very professional and upbeat about the company. I especially appreciated their honesty in presenting a realistic job description, including challenges. I encountered no bizarre/left field interview questions (I've heard my share) and upper management presented themselves as very down to earth, passionate for success/growth, but with realistic expectations.
    After completing my 1st week of onboarding and training, all is as expected, no big surprises. I couldn't be more happy to be working for Belden, an industry leader.

    Director Continuous Improvement/Lean Leader Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Belden (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    HR screen first, followed by a personality test that tests logic, reasoning and reading comprehension. Followed by phone interview with a member of the team, then a seperate interview with the hiring manager, then the Sales Exec. 4 hour interview with an industrial psychologist was the last step - did not move past this round. Lengthiest process I have ever experienced with any company. Little feedback on how you're doing throughout process and certainly at the end the feedback why I was eliminated was vague with little detail.

    Very negative experience as the job requirements changed while in the process. I was slated to go in for an interview but was told the CEO decided the candidate should have specific skills not part of the original job post requirements which changed everything and hence made several candidates waste their time. Be cautious if a job has been open for months (mine was open for 6 months) they most likely dont know what theyre doing or what they want in a candidate

    Interview Questions

    • Resume questions, some behavioural, leadership type questions, little technical questions   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Belden in February 2015.

    Interview

    Screening through recruiter, written answers to list of questions, formal application on website, phone interview. I was initially told by the recruiter the job would not require travel, but during the phone interview I found out this was not the case. I also learned that, although they wanted someone with SAP experience, many of their sites are on a legacy system and that is what I would initially be supporting.

The next day we had a rotation of a tour, Q&A and interview. The interview was with three people and was situational again.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Belden.

    Interview

    The interview process was very generic and unprofessional. However there was testing that was done to determine where you ranked in accordance with their company values. The hiring process was your standard hiring process with drug screen and background check.

    The company did not represent itself in a professional manner and there did not seem like there would be any other opportunities for advancement
