Applications Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview


The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Siemens Energy & Automation (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2009.


The first call was from HR. The second call was from the hiring manager. The next call was with a senior VP. This was followed by an on-site visit. The on-site visit included a panel interview with 4 people including the hiring manager, senior engineers and a VP. It also included a couple of one-on-one interviews. The lunch was organized in the cafeteria and I spoke to a couple of employees about their experiences. I suppose that was part of the interview process as well.
