    Engineer Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jamshedpur (India)
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview

    Applied online through college site then got an on-campus interview. It was really laid back. I got invited to final interviews and they flew me to Chicago. Everything went really well and everyone was very nice. You have dinner and meet and greet the first night. The next day is long but helpful. You learn about the company and then have 3 1-1 interviews with managers. I declined the offer I received because of location.
