Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.

Interview

HR screen call and email confirmation for on site interview. First round interviewed with hiring manager, talked about the business unit and responsibilities. Manager is very nice and shared her career path and understanding of the company, the conversation is very smooth. Second round interviewed with principal FA and distribution supervisor. The position is designed to work under supervision of principal FA, and from the conversation who indicated this position is more accounting focused rather than finance, and only needs a person with basic accounting skills and understanding of business.

Interview Questions

  • How do you think your pursuit of CPA and CFA and your skills related to this position? The position is more accounting focused also with basic responsibilities for contract and order entry.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview

    Had two phone screens, a networking event, and then a "super day" the following day where I interviewed with Vice Presidents. Then three weeks later, I had two more phone calls (one with a mid-level employee and the other with a Vice President), and then the job was offered to me three days after the last phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Case question: analysis of business divisions that have different vertical scopes. Was expected to discuss the differences between the business divisions in terms of gross profit margins and what sort of attention is given to each division.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had applied for a specific program, but during the three weeks between my super day and when I had the final phone calls, the position that I was interviewing for was given to other candidates, and I was offered a less prestigious position in a geography that I was unaware that I was interviewing for.
