    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Neenah, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Plexus (Neenah, WI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process is probably not what you are first expecting. You need to prepare a powerpoint presentation about yourself, highlighting your strengths and previous work. To me this made the interview process a lot better then the typical question/answer format. Because it allowed me to pinpoint some of the larger projects I accomplished during my internships that don't always fit into the typical interview questions. (I am also very outgoing and an excellent presenter so this style played to my strengths) After the presentation multiple engineering supervisors (one from each of their sectors/departments) and an HR rep will play question and answer with you, most questions play off of what you have talked about or things written on your resume. The HR person will generally ask stereotypical interview questions, while the supervisors will ask more project specific or technical questions. Overall a great company to interview with. (I ended up getting hired so I might be a little biased)

    Logistics of the interview: was there for a couple hours for the interview in a conference room, don't expect a tour unless they like you as there is limited viewing and strict rules since they do some defense contracting

    Interview Downside: I was not compensated for any travel expenses (gas, meals, housing, etc) unlike many of the other companies I interviewed with. (Kohler compensates you the most from my experiences)

    Interview Questions

    • All questions from the engineering supervisors are based on your presentation.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Was able to negotiate salary, just have to be able to justify why. However was told that they normally do not do relocation bonuses which was a downside.

    Program Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Plexus (Neenah, WI) in June 2014.

    Interview

    A brief phone interview expressing interest followed by an invitation to attend an in person meeting. Required to prepare a slide show presentation selling yourself to the business. This is not an unreasonable request however given the pay grade offered it seems a bit much. The in person interview gives you a lot of insights into the culture (obvious team tension).

    Software Engineer Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you think I want to hear
      Had other skills questions   Answer Question

    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
