Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric.

Interview

I applied online through LinkedIn. I had a total of 3 interviews. One was online where you respond to a set of questions and record your response. The second was a phone interview with the Recruiter who asked the usual questions about what you're looking for and why you want to work there. The last interview had me first shadow and employee to see what the work life was about and if it interested me. Then was an interview with the manager and lead in the department. They were both very friendly asking about things from your experience and how they related to the position you are applying for. One hour later, I received a call with an offer. From there you have a week to accept or decline it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Providence, RI) in November 2013.

    Interview

    One phone interview, on campus interview and a large interview event that i was flown too. The entire process took about 1 month but just long waits in between interviews. This is just one of the possible ways it can go, I knew several people who only had a phone screening and a quick in person interview for the same job. Depends on the timing

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (West Kingston, RI) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Process started with a 1-on-1 interview at my university, which was exceedingly casual and lasted about fifteen minutes total. Second round was a two-day event that included a dinner with mostly HR employees and a few current ISR's sprinkled in the mix. Very nice and all expenses were paid. The second interview followed the dinner, after a tour of the facility, a few HR presentations, and a nice lunch. Second interview was conducted by one of the HR employees from the dinner and another, younger employee. Questions ranged from technical electric to hypothetical role-playing in a support scenario (read: sell me this pencil, etc). Second interview lasted about an hour, though it felt I was pushed out at the end. Overall, a very nice experience with an impressive company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (West Kingston, RI) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by a 1 on 1 interview at the company headquarters (all expenses paid... food, hotel, rental car, flight). The interview was comfortable. It was conducted by a "Team Leader" who is normal very young and is on the track to bigger and better things, which makes the outlook a bit more rosy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Getafe (Spain)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The process, in my case, was very simple. They wanted to hire me at any cost. Management rolls the dice, not HHRR.
    They tried to cheat me about the roles, but management was clearly the decision-maker. And that decision was already taken. During that period, the economy in Spain was at its highest peak and increasing every year.

    Interview Questions

    • They were really interested in joining me as soon as possible. I worked for a competitor.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Very easy. From the very first interview in 2003 (not 2013). I noticed they wanted to hire me.
    Just need two more interviews: the second with HHRR, and the final interview as an agreement.
    Sorry, but I was not able to pick up 2003 year, so I chose 2013.
