    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Siemens (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Transmission Planning engineer position in Siemens PTI group at Houston office. They have power system transmission planning projects for utilities in the US and also south America. Two managers and another two team members involved in the interview. Phone interview for 1 hour with a lot of technical questions. Interviewers are experts in the area. Received onsite invitation after 1 week. The onsite interview is not easy but still OK if you really had related experience. The onsite is from 9am to 1pm, with 2 hours technical questions then 2 hours for you to give a technical presentation (a lot of questions regarding your presentation).

    The hiring manager arranged all the interview process; no HR involved through the interview process. Still on the waiting list when writing this review. All the interviewers are expert in this area and they are very nice. A little bid strenuous at onsite but still enjoyed the interview.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Siemens (Houston, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on-line and about a week later I received a call for an interview. The interviewers were very rude and acted as if they didn't want to be there. They left the room for a minutes and only one came back to ask additional questions. I was ready to leave from the beginning based on their attitudes and behavior. I didn't get the job and was told it was given to someone who already worked there. Perhaps they had to interview others before giving the position to an employee.

    Field Service Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Siemens (Houston, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I met the first recruiter at a career fair through my university. We scheduled my first interview for the next day and talked a little about the company and what the job entailed. It seemed to me that basically as long as you were ok with the fact the job was like 85% and working in on outdoor job sites for long periods of time and seemed somewhat motivated, then you were qualified for the next stage of the interview. For the second interview they flew me out for 2 days to Houston. We visited the headquarters there and toured a natural gas facility where they do some work, got to meet lots of people who do the same job and run the business operations in different regions around the US. We went out to a nice restaurant for dinner, where you need to make sure you sit next to one of the people who will be interviewing you the next day and take advantage of your opportunity to socialize with them. Then the next day was a 3 round interview process. We got called in from the breakfast area to another conference which had a bunch of tables walled off by curtains, each one with a panel of 1 or 2 people interviewing 1 person at a time... so pretty distracting noisy environment. Part of me suspects it tests your ability to concentrate with a lot going on around you, such as you might experience as a field service engineer in a construction environment. The interview questions were still mostly personality questions to see if you're a good fit for the demanding work lifestyle, with a few obscure basic engineering questions to see if you can think on your toes under pressure.
