    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Siemens (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted as a 20 to 30 minute Skype interview. I was emailed by the company and asked to list my opening time slots and was scheduled to interview the following day. Four interviewers were present and it started via Skype but after the call cut out, the remainder was done by phone.

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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

    Customer Excellence Analytics Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Siemens in February 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed by phone with a recruiter, then about a week later I interviewed with the hiring manager who was based out of country. I was told I would here back within the week regarding next steps. I received no correspondence back. I then followed up on the role 5 additional times over the course of the next 45 days and never received any additional information about the role. These 5 additional communications included correspondence to both the hiring manager and recruiter. I found this lack of communication from Siemens to be unprofessional and reflective of how the company must be operating internally.

    Material Management Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plainfield, IN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Siemens (Plainfield, IN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. Received an email for online screening within a week. Later, received an email from HR stating the hiring manager is in town and wants to conduct an interview the next day. After that a second interview was scheduled with HR. A third interview with talent acquisition, which was to be conducted on phone, was scheduled for a later date. After the third interview, I did not receive any calls or email regarding the status of my application. Upon emailing the HR inquiring about the status I received an automated email stating that I was rejected. I believe that my interview went very well especially the first one. I only wish that they could have provided some explanation for the rejection after wasting my time for three interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The first interview with the hiring manager who was also the head of department, was the longest and toughest. The manager was extremely polite and friendly. He asked questions like:
      1) What is the one thing your resume doesn't tell about you.
      2) What is diversity to you and how will it be important for this job.
      3) How would you resolve a conflict in the workplace.
      4) How would your prior education and experience be useful for this job.
      The second and third interview with HR and Talent acquisition were about prior jobs and why they were left.
