    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norcross, GA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Siemens Energy & Automation (Norcross, GA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was arranged with an internal recruiter with no expectations of what the interview would consist of besides that it would be five 30 minute interviews with individuals. There was no mention of the role of the interviewers.

    The one on one interviews were with people with different responsibilities. There was no expectation of what the process would be from person to person. Each interview was very different.

    The real difficulty was short exposure to different people and not being able to build on your conversations since in 30 minutes you start again from hello.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you convince someone to do something they were opposed to doing?   Answer Question

    Applications Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wendell, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Siemens Energy & Automation (Wendell, NC) in January 2011.

    Interview

    They were extremely nice and polite. The work environment was great. They didn't ask a lot of technical questions and they focused more on my resume and asked me some simple questions about my experiences and skills. Everything was alright, but unfortunately I couldn't get the position, and I'm still trying to find a position at Siemens. I completely understand they were looking for the best qualified applicant and definitely they have chosen the best one. By the way, I heard the salaries are not so high at Siemens, but I love to work at Siemens....
