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.

    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

    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.

    Interview

    Approached at college career fair event and talked to a current inside sales representative about how my technical and business skills from previous internships would benefit the company.

At RI all accommodations were paid for and reimbursed, and spent a couple of day hearing current employees success story and touring the plant. Concluded the day with a 2:1 interview with a couple of managers.

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.

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (West Kingston, RI) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I first had a one on one interview with the HR lady after I submitted my resume online. It was a very relaxed and basic interview- more of a conversation then anything. She liked me and asked me to come in for an interview at the company headquarters in a few weeks. Within that time I had to take a couple of online aptitude/personality tests. The day of the on-site interview was a recruitment day where they had about 20 candidates interviewing for about 10 jobs (ISR and Engineering). This consisted of a company presentation, job shadow, 2 on 1 interview (including some brain teaser questions), and lastly an HR/benefits presentation. Overall it was a very positive experience, the interview was not overly difficult, and everyone was very friendly. It felt like they were actually investing time in trying to get to know you. The atmosphere was young and relaxed, the vast majority of employees are right out of college.

    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.
