    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Neenah, WI
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Plexus (Neenah, WI).

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter at a career fair, then the next day (or 2 days later) had an interview on campus. Pretty routine interview asking me about my resume and experiences. He said he'd recommend me for the next step, and a week or two later I got an email from them. I drove out to Neenah WI (they paid for gas and the hotel), and had an all day interview consisting of a tour, meeting with HR (they went over benefits, which I thought was really weird), and a couple of skills tests. One test was about the software process (requirements, design, implementation, etc), and one was a programming test. They said they had the same test for all skill levels, and I missed a fair amount of questions. Got an offer a week later via email.

    Reasons for Declining

    They only gave me about a week to decide, the offer was quite a bit lower than others I had gotten (though still quite reasonable), and it was out in Neenah WI - I got a job closer to home

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Plexus in October 2017.

    Interview

    Met at university recruitment event, got an interview immediately. At the first interview, was a 30 minute interview going over the basics, why I wanted to work there, why software, favorite projects, etc. The next interview was an all day event at their office where I had to prepare a 20 minute presentation in front of about 15-20 people. Next was a tour (I was instructed to touch and pickup objects and ask questions...) of the facilities, workspace, labs, etc. The first technical interview was mostly centered around product requirements. I met with two people and there was a little bit of white board coding. After that, they took me out to lunch.
    When we got back, it was time for the HR benefits overview. This seemed pretty normal, explaining benefits that the company offers. The recruiter then asks me where I have offers from and then proceeds to hammer me on a salary price that I had in mind. The biggest rule about salary negotiations is you don't offer the number first. So we went around and around for about 5 minutes. It was extremely uncomfortable and I was shaken. After that, it was time for the next technical interview. By this time, I was still shaken from the confrontation with the recruiter so I feel like I did not perform well. Was given a scenario and had to describe how I would code for this problem. Since I could not think, the 2 people there were nice and helped and gave hints but I already knew I wasn't performing at my best.
    There was a conversation with the software manager to conclude everything and I was told that I would hear back soon (within a few days.) I never heard back, I reached out and asked if I would be receiving a decision, but I never heard back until I accepted an offer elsewhere.

    Chief Executive Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oshkosh, WI

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Plexus (Oshkosh, WI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Used the STAR method: Situation, your Task, Action you took, Results. Interview held offsite and candidates rotated such that candidates never interacted or met throughout the process. For the first interview round, the process included a 15-min writing of why I felt I was the right candidate for the position. The organization uses scoring from the team of interviews to make determinations. The second round of interviews for the final candidate was based on the best fit for the organization. The most disappointing aspect was after the second interviews for which there was a lack of follow through by the organization to notify all final candidates even after inquiring. Finally, I received a very generic email with mismatched text font that was obviously sent to every candidate applied or interviewed which felt very disrespectful as a final candidate to be lumped in and notified the same as an applicant that had never even been interviewed.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Plexus (Austin, TX) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was called in for an on campus interview the day after career fair. The interview was very relaxed and calm. He had a laptop in front of him to take notes which made me feel like less attention was on me which helped with my nerves. The questions were pretty basic, nothing too hard or out of the blue.
