I applied online. I interviewed at Johnson Controls

Interview

I applied online and a couple months later a recruiter contacted me for a phone interview. I called her back and left a message and she never got back to me so I called her once again and we scheduled a interview. A couple weeks later I was contacted by the hiring manager and he gave me less than a 24 hour notice before my interview. He never asked me for my availability and just scheduled it. When I got to the interview, I was asked behavioral questions and the hiring team seemed confused to as why I was there because I majored in electrical engineering. It was a mechanical engineering position but that was never stated in the job description. The manager himself told me my resume was impressive so I was a bit confused. I was told I’ll be contacted for a second interview and they never got back to me. Very unprofessional.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Washington, DC) in Sep 2017

Interview

I applied online and got a phone screening with a recruiter one week later. Just basic questions about your previous experience, like walk through your resume. The recruiter was friendly to talk with, and asked my availability the next week to talk with the hiring manager. However, he did ask me if I need future sponsorship, and I told him yes but I have three years of OPT. He sounded understanding and supportive at that time, but I heard nothing back ever since.

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Oklahoma City, OK) in Jul 2016

Interview

I first submitted my resume and it was about a month before JCI called asking more questions about why I was looking for a job and what pay I expected. Then, two weeks before they called again to set up another interview that would happen in another two weeks. I got into the interview and they took a look at my resume and asked about past jobs and experience with HVAC systems. Questions were not hard. There were no behavioral questions. At the end of the interview they mentioned they would let me know in two weeks whether the news was positive or negative. As of this moment. It has been a month of waiting. I have emailed those whom I interviewed with but there hasn't been any response back. So far the process from application submittal until now has been three months.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Glendale, WI)

Interview

They had me give a powerpoint presentation about my past engineering work. Precarious task considering most of what i have ever engineered is done with very strict confidentiality agreements. They also try and assess your creativity and eng knowledge to some extent by putting you on the spot. It is somewhat like being grilled in front of a Graduate Review board when you get your MS or Phd. They don't try to learn about you as a person so much as assess your robotic and calculative potential. I am an intelligent and effective engineer, but not always an eloquent speaker and I believe that worked against me a bit. I feel like they want only valedictorian / deans list types here. I found the process quite disappointing, and learned little about any one that interviewed me or the true workings of the company. They skim over answering questions asked by candidates. Overall a bizarre and ineffective interview.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a specific situation in which you failed, and how did you move forward?
  • Sketch / brainstorm 5 different possible solutions to this design problem. They give you some parameters and constraints...
  • How do you deal with ambiguity in requirements designing a component or product?
