    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Emerson (Woodbury, MN) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to do a phone interview. Phone interview resulted in an in person interview one week later. I interviewed with multiple people over a span of four hours. I cannot say enough good things about this process or the people I met. Sure it was lengthy but this company is wants to be sure they have the right people in the right roles. This is A brilliant approach! My interview included mock calls, an inbox exercise where I had to prioritize work based on the information I was given. Every employee I talked to loved the company and had been there >10 years. I was so impressed when I left! I don't know if I will receive an offer but I had to submit this review!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Emerson (Dayton, OH).

    Interview

    Started out with a series of phone interviews and then went to an onsite series of interviews. On the second set of onsite interviews they sent me an itinerary five days before, but did not set up an travel. Someone totally dropped the ball on the logistics piece. Also found it odd that they were not very well organized, made me feel like an outsider the whole time.

    Did an interview on campus after a university career fair. Heard back form an HR rep and set up an interview at their Rosemount facility. Since I was out of town they got a hotel room about a mile from the facility. Came in the next morning and did 3-1 hour panel interviews. No tour or anything, just in and out. Overall interviewers were nice and asked basic questions. Have never returned a call or responded to an email since.
