    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (Detroit, MI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a call from HR followed by a video interview after a week. Then was called on-site for face to face interview with the hiring team. Was asked to deliver a presentation for about 20-25 mins followed by Q&A session which involved white board discussion. After that had a briefing about benefits and stuff followed by lunch. I was following up for about 45 days after the onsite interview and there was not any solid response. It was very upsetting as I didn't expect such a company like SEL to be unprofessional
