Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Schneider Electric.

Interview

Very informal. Started off with a phone interview as a pre-screen before taking the time to have me come in for a formal interview. I interviewed with a few people internally then 3 months later got called back in for another interview with more people. There was not a lot of direction or information over the course of this hiring process. There was not even a job description for what I was interviewing for. Could have been a very simple process, but the lack of information and communication made it very stressful. I felt like I was being strung along the whole time, and worried this was an indication of what it could be like in the company

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Nashville, TN) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was interviewed over the phone first by two managers, which lasted about an hour. It was helpful to immediately write their names down and things they said during the interview to go back to after. I was flown to site per a follow-up email and put in a hotel the day before. The day of I was picked up from the hotel, brought to site and then interviewed with 3 sets of managers. They dropped me off at the airport and I went home. Pretty simple.
