    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Siemens (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview process was a video interview. They asked five to eight questions where I had a set amount of time to respond. Each question was recorded for a maximum length and the Interviewee can re-record their answers as many times as they would like. Only downside is this limited the possibility to ask questions at the end except for in written form and wait for a response.

    Service Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Siemens (Elgin, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Received a surprise call for a video interview after applying to the position 90+ days earlier. On site interview consisted of a meeting with the hiring manager and stakeholders from 3 business units that all have competing interests. They all wanted the answer to the questions to be that I would prioritize their work over the others. The hiring manager spent a lot of time on Siemens various business units but offered very little by way of specifics for the position. The panel process was not well organized, the interview started late, ran late, and gave little indication whether or not the candidate and organization would be a good fit. May have just been a busy day on their end...

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Round Lake, IL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Siemens (Round Lake, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Hiring process was extremely long and tedious. Very disorganized and lengthy. Took 3.5 months overall from initial contact to the actual start date. Had interview with 7 people. All interviewers were great pleasant people. Lots of behavioral questions from hiring manager. The rest of the interviewers concentrated mostly on actual job experience.
    Then after all interviewing was complete there was a hiccup on their end and I had to wait almost a month to obtain additional approval on this position from CIO if the company due to tightening of hiring which was unnerving and frustrating.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Siemens (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The job was posted in September. After no word for several months, applicants were sent an email link to a video interview. Since HR was in a hurry, they sent everyone the same link even the job descriptions were incorrect. Panel interviews were then conducted in a temporary room just off of the trade-show floor
