    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric in December 2016.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume online, I was contacted and had an initial phone interview with a corporate recruiter. After a very friendly and informative conversation, I was told that the hiring manager would contact me for a 2nd interview, but was forewarned that the holidays may delay the process. I left the phone interview excited and hopeful about moving forward in the process. After the holidays I was informed that the requisition had been canceled, which is not uncommon in large companies. I still keep an eye on this company and would welcome an opportunity to pursue employment again.

    Regional Applications Security Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Andover, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very different and weird experience -- though I didnt get the role but thought of sharing my experience. I applied online and was contacted by recruiter and salary expectations and other stuff was discussed -- the recruiter told me that he would send me his details so that I could reach out with questions. A week passed and nothing, I looked up on my emails and found his contact details from an year ago, the same recruiter left me hanging then too. With no expectations whatsoever, this time atleast I was put in the interview process. I had to followup after a week everytime after each interview to get the recruiters attention. After 3 telephone interviews , the recruiter came back and said oh my bad the salary is (discussed range)-50k. I politely declined then, but the recruiter came back after a week to express further interest and now agreeing on a salary of (discussed range )-10k. I went for the face to face interview followed by radio silence for two weeks. I followed up and this time recruiter said there is an interest but we cant pay more than (discussed range )-15k -- to test the waters I agreed and the recruiter said that he would get back to in a week. After two weeks of followup and multiple emails the recruiter called and told me they went ahead with somebody else that was cheaper!

    The recruiter at times said he doesnt know anything or more than I do etc. I had to chase him on multiple occasions. Please treat your prospective employees with dignity and dont doubt their intelligence.
    Spoke with three folks. All were great and explained the role, their role and also asked me related questions -- I probably gave them better ideas to make the process better and address potential gaps.

    All in all, I got the experience the interview process which is reflective of the culture within the firm -- lax and slow. I am glad I failed in expectations and didnt get the opportunity!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Burnsville, MN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Standard phone interviews consisting of an HR screening and a more technical interview. The HR screening had some basic behavior questions, and focused a lot on my internship and academic background. The technical interview focused mostly on an overview of the technologies stacks that I was familiar with, not diving very in-depth on testing any of my system design or programming skills.

    Marketing Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Schneider Electric in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had a recommendation from active employee. Had initial phone interview and then recruiter vanished. No one every returns an email and they don't list phone numbers or an actual live person to communicate with.

    Completed a few online applications but once again, no communication for more than three months. I use to be a customer of Schneider and even setup a reseller program to promote their products.

    The lack of professionalism they show via communicating with potential employees has completely changed my opinion of this company.
