    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Siemens (New York, NY).

    Interview

    This was a phone screen conducted by a manager. The first sign it was going to be bad should have been when they called and then hung up on me. The mgr did call back in a minute explaining someone came to their. door (they can't put you on hold?!). Next they asked me to tell them about myself. I was on speaker phone and this person was obviously home and all I could hear was loud banging and background sound. Awkward and unprofessional to say the least. I wasn't sure they could even hear me. The position requires travel which I was aware of. But then they then asked if I'm willing to relocate...across the country. No where was it indicated in the job description there would be relocation. It was listed as a job in my region. The manager then states that HR would call me next week for a follow up however there are other applicants...sounds ok I'm thinking...maybe it'll get better. Not a minute after we hang up do I receive in email that I'm not proceeding to the next round. Why not just say I'm not a fit for the job and move on? Again unprofessional and just poor character. Guess what?! I'm fine with that. This person was unprofessional and rude. No thanks. The worst phone screen ever. Left a very bad impression on me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Siemens (Princeton, NJ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I had a initial HireVue round where I answered five simple Java questions. Then I had a 1 hour phone interview with a panel. Then I was invited to fly onsite for an interview loop. It was one of the poorly managed processes according to time and they were pathetic in keeping time. I had to do a project and it was for one hour but was given only 30 mins. Project Manager was busy and I had to wait for an hour and they didn't know what to do. Poor time management from some company like Siemens was a shock

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Siemens (Alpharetta, GA).

    Interview

    I applied through a listing on a job board.
    Received an email for a video interview, which I completed.
    received an email request for an in person interview.
    Company recruiter called me for a phone call regarding interview.
    In person interview was a panel interview with four staff members, each had a pamphlet and took turns asking questions. They seemed to not " be on the same page" and were asking questions as if it were a test instead of an interview.
    I never heard anything after the interview. I called the Siemens recruiter 3 times and emailed, but never received a response.
    Very unprofessional.

    Supplier Quality Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Siemens in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through their internal job portal and within 2 weeks recieved a "Hirevue" interview. Basically you answer pre-recorded questions via live feed camera. This was the first I ever had that conducted and it was surprisingly uncomfortable.
    Next step was an onsite with a panel. They mostly asked about work experience and some technical questions related to large GT components and how to manufacture/machine them. The questions they asked deviated from a normal SQE position. After another week was called in for another onsite with another panel. This was a heavy technical interview in regards to how you go about manufacturing large gas turbine components which included the type of machinery, welding parameters and GD&T required. Again, very different from the job requisition of a SQE. Didnt recieve any notification but checked my profile and was not selected.
    My guess is they are having trouble with their newly sourced suppliers (cost reductions) and are wanting an mechanical engineer to come in and tell the supplier how to make their components all the way to programming their milling machines.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you make this part (ring gear)?   Answer Question
    • What type of machine would you use to cut this part ?   Answer Question
    • Given several positional and concentric GD&T questions related to different datums and how to measure a large part.   Answer Question
    • Given several welding AWS code questions and acceptable weld via weld symbology   Answer Question
