    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Chicago, IL) in March 2012.

    Asked mostly behavioral questions, i.e. describe a time you worked in a team and had to overcome a challenge, and describe a time where you had to come up with a solution on your own to a difficult problem. Mostly STAR based questions. The interviewer wanted to make sure that I was not just technically competent, but capable of interacting with others. I made it a point to emphasize how much I liked working with people and I think that put me in good stead. Very friendly interview, I was told a little bit about the position and contacted within a few weeks for a final interview on site.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Jamshedpur (India)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call from recruiter enticing my interest in the MT Switchgear profile with Schneider. I said "Yes" and went ahead with their phone screenings, background check, cross questioning, electrical sales / market experience etc... Personal Interview followed, which was a breeze. They were insistent upon the electrical fundamentals only and essentially my learnings about the electrical switchgear market. All & all it was easy for me, except for negotiating the salary part, which I was adamant about. And eventually won. My earlier employer was Havells and I was actually comfortable working for it.
