    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Danfoss International.

    Interview

    The interview process was very structured and well planned and executed. The first call was from the HR to gauge if I was the fit for the profile. I cleared that one. The second call was with the Product Manager (Hiring Manager) and he was pretty impressed by my technical knowledge and experience. I cleared that round and was called for an Onsite Interview. The Onsite interview was a pretty rigorous process, where 7 people from different cross functional department interviewed me for half an hour each.

    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Danfoss International.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a phone interview which consisted of your general run of the mill back ground questions. Three months later, I was finally contacted for an in person 3.5 hour interview which I felt went very well. The interview panel were friendly and laid back for the most part. Was told they would be making a decision within the week. Two weeks later and no word. None of their HR people respond to emails or calls. Very unprofessional and severe lack of communication. Can say that I will decline their offer if/when it happens as I have other employers to consider. Had previously declined an offer for a different position due to duties and shift times required and wasn't impressed with their HR handling but felt it was due to me being located 12 hours away.

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Two step interview process- first interview was with hiring manager over phone. We went over my past experience and questions based on my resume. Then on site interview that included 30 min. presentation, and three technical individual interviews with team members. Also, there was a short interview with HR. The manager gave me tour of the company facilities and then took me to dinner on the day before the interview, and then for lunch on the day of interview. Overall the experience was very good. They give you a great insight into the work you will be doing and were very friendly throughout the process.

    Procurement Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arkadelphia, AR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Arkadelphia, AR).

    Interview

    Easy interview. They didn't care a thing about my experince or technical knowledge. They wanted someone who was smart and able to effectively communicate with clients. All of the questions were based on behavioral scenairios. Such as the typical name a time you had a problem, etc. However I would note that if you are applying thinking this is an engineering position, it isn't. It is closer to a buyer position and is a fun job as long as you know what you are getting into.

    I was in contact with HR and the Tech. supervisor who would be conducting the interview. When I came in to interview I was greeted by one of the Manufacturing engineers. Afterwards I was introduced to the Tech. supervisor and both the Supervisor and the ME conducted an interview. Soon the manager of the value stream came in and directed more questions toward me and explained the company's origin and vision. This was followed by a tour and a brief overview of the roles I would have should I be hired in. We went back and sat down, discussed more and I asked several question. Then they said they would call me with and offer and the interview was over.

    Senior Industrial Engineer (Internal: Navigator) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Loves Park, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Loves Park, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    This was the most drawn out process I've ever encountered. The HR portion went very quickly, they did a prescreen and followed up by letting me know I'd be contacted by the hiring manager. It took more than 6 weeks to get the first call scheduled via e-mail. The time for the call came and went without notice and without a call. I sent an email requesting a re-schedule that was responded to three days later. The call was rescheduled and again, it was missed without notice. Two days later it was finally scheduled week out for a 30 minute call. The call finally happened and actually lasted an hour. This resulted in a face-to-face interview that had similar rescheduling issues. I did very well in the interview, but it became clear that the hiring manager was just going through the motions as my skills and experiences far exceeded his.

    I liked the company very much. I think they would be a fine company to work for. However, based upon the erratic interaction with the hiring manager, I would have likely declined a job offer.
