The process is clean and precise. They really know how to access interviewers to make sure they are a great fit! Very challenging, but if you go with the confidence and knowledge, you will succeed.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Emerson (Shakopee, MN) in Sep 2022
The overall process is pretty intense, but it was very transparent and fun along the way. First part of the application process is submitting online. Around a week later you will have a phone interview where they will ask questions about electric properties and ohms law and some soft skills questions. A week later will be the rigorous in person interview. If you are from out of town they will pay for you hotel, I recommend this as it got me in the mind set the night before. Day of us about 4 hours. You watch a safety video, get a tour, and shadow for the first hour. Next is in basket where they test your ability to prioritize tasks in a real world scenario. Sounds scary, but if you read the prompt and just explain your choices you will be fine. Next, is the phone role play. They will give you 3 scenarios and you will just pretend to talk to the customer. Just stay calm and try to answer as much as you can. Finally is the technical and soft skills section where they will ask you questions relatively fast for an hour. Next you will have an HR interview about a week later. Then another week passes and you should have an offer or they will send you a rejection email.
- Name as many electrical terms as possible (resistance, voltage, capacitance, etc) What is ohms law? (V=IR) What is Bernoullis law? Define PH What is basic/what is acidic? Define pressure How do you measure pressure of a hose with everyday items You will see a graph and need to interpret it relating velocity and pressure What do you need to start a fire?

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Emerson (Shakopee, MN) in Jan 2022
4 Hour interview • Shadowing with an Inside Sales Engineer (1 hour) • Technical/Sales (1 hour) • In Basket (1 hour) • Role Play ( 1 hour) The technical section was very intense. 1 full hour of very technical questions on pressure, temperature, and flow. They told me prior to the interview to have product knowledge however they asked me very specific questions on how specific electronics works and why ( I am a mechanical engineer). The "soft skills" guy was condescending and made me feel stupid. He called me a 12-year-old. I really wanted to work for Emerson but after that interview, I will tell my friends and classmates about my terrible experience. I would not want to work for a place where management made me feel stupid.
- What's the best customer service experience you have ever received.
- What's Bernoulli's equation and how does it work?
- Shown graphs and figures and asked questions pertaining to pressure.
- How would you measure pressure out of a hose with everyday items?

I applied online. I interviewed at Emerson in Feb 2020
First started with a phone screen, then met with the hiring manager. Finally, they set up the third and final interview that would consist of four parts. The day prior, I received an email that the final portion with HR would be moved to the following Monday as they were out of office. Fine. Friday went great. Monday came around I checked my email several times and then all of the sudden 13 minutes prior to the interview, they cancelled! They made no effort to finish. Completely unprofessional to cancel an interview 13 min prior.
- What types of temperature measurements are there?

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Emerson (New York, NY) in Mar 2018
Emerson contacted me very quickly after my application. I had spoken to a representative at a college career fair so that is most likely why. I had one phone interview and less than a week later was contacted to set up an on-site interview. The phone interview was pretty simple. I was asked about customer service skills and other career goals. The on-site interview was a panel of 5-6 people. They also asked me about career goals, what I knew about the position, and typical behavior based interview questions. I waited for quite a while to hear back from them about their decision (long enough to feel like I did not get the position). I was then contacted and offered the position about 3 weeks after the in person interview.
