    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Emerson (Marshalltown, IA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Interview was set up at a Career Fair, gentleman I talked to led me to believe that the interview would be with the Emerson parent company. Interviewed with a different gentleman working for Fisher explicitly (control valves). Interview started off well, I had experience with the line of TI micro controllers he used (MSP valueline).

    Interviewer was dressed in casual attire, Polo and slacks. Prompted me for questions about the company multiple times. Took approx. 30 min. Not a lot of technical questions. More interested in previous project experiences than technical knowledge.

    I inquired about opportunities outside of Fisher, and he seemed to become upset. He told me he was recruiting for Fisher only.
