    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Nashville, TN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    At first I was asked to do a recorded interview through some website. Questions were basic and all were behavioral. I received an email the day after and asked to do a phone interview with the hiring manager. He was the Technical Lead here in Nashville area. He asked some behavioral questions and couple technical questions. They were all fair for an entry level engineer. The interview was going great until he asked me if I would need a sponsorship in the future. I told him that I have a work permit visa and I could legally work for up to three years and after that yes, I'd need a sponsorship. He ended up the interview saying the HR will contact you for the next step of the process but I never heard anything back.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Smyrna, TN) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I had an on-site interview that was divided into three separate interviews back-to-back. The process was long and exhausting. The questions were general and aimed at getting a clearer idea of who I was and what I wanted to do in my career. I though it odd that only one of the interviewers actually worked in a role similar to the one I was applying for and was therefore the only one who could actually answer any questions I had. After driving four hours to interview for half a day I never heard another word, not even a "We regret to inform you . . ." email. I even emailed the interviewers directly to follow up, but never got a response.

    It was a phone interview and it went really well. The interviewer asked only behavioral questions and they were all HR questions. Very doable!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Knoxville, TN) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through web posting through my university and was scheduled for an interview. Interview was mostly behavioral questions. They basically want to see someone who is passionate about what they do and communicates clearly. I think if they want to pay what is posted on Glassdoor though they should not try to recruit Bachelors degrees; it's Associates degree pay.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult but here's what I remember:
      What is your greatest strength?
      If a load is capacitive is the current lagging or leading?
      What is the key difference between the phases of a three phase system?
      Give me an example of when you have dealt with change.
      Give me an example of a project you did with people of different departments or cultures.
      What are you passionate about?
      What did you like least about Electrical Engineering?
      What do you know about Schneider Electric?
      Of the jobs available does anything stand out to you?
      Do you know what the jobs available involve?
      They also may ask you questions about things on your resume.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Providence, RI) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I LOVED the interview\hiring process. I've applied directly through the companies website and got a response 6 month later. I've received an e-mail inviting me for a simple phone interview. The phone interview was pretty simple (What do you know about the company?.. Why do you want to work for Schneider?,...etc) They wanted to know if I was fit for the position. 2 Days later they invited me to fly in to their Rhode Island office for an interview. They were pretty fast at booking a flight, arranging a car rental, and booking a hotel room. I've spent 1 night at the hotel and had the interview the next day. The Interview was pretty simple as well with basic resume questions. They also asked some basic technical questions. AC vs DC, Power path from AC wall outlet to the power plant. 1 week later I received a job offer. Overall great experience..
