    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Siemens (Orlando, FL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was typical. The questions were very standard: where do you see yourself in 5-10 years. Nothing original. The HR rep said if this guy didn't hire me, she'd find me another spot! Lots of opportunity if you are a go-getter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Siemens.

    Interview

    Applied online and within a couple of weeks was contacted by email to schedule the initial 1:1 interview.

    I had 3 separate face to face interviews of 1-1.5 hours each over the span of 4 months! The interviewers were professional and polite and concentrated on my CV, experience, skills and some behavior based questions.

    There were a number of instances where they were asking a bit too many personal questions, such as why I left previous employers. It is natural to ask why you left your previous employer but it becomes quite annoying to start prying about why you left all of them and then getting into interrogation mode. Obviously people are unhappy and that is why they leave one job and move to the next or companies will have no applicants!

    I was also not very pleased to be asked to travel several hundred miles (each time) for 3 separate 1-1.5 hour interviews, at least 2 of which could have been done by phone or skype, wasting time and money.

    Also I started wondering why I even bothered attending, when one of the interviewers told me at the very first interview that one of the benefits of working for Siemens is that INTERNAL CANDIDATES get preferential treatment over external applicants! At a different interview I was also told that they are indeed interviewing internal candidates which was frustrating and disappointing since you know that in large organisations they will more likely than not find their candidate internally. Seems they invite external applicants just to tick employment law boxes.

    Siemens HR are absolutely terrible! I had to wait 1-2 months between interviews to hear whether I had been successful to progress to the next interview. They rarely reply to emails and when contacting you, always use the wrong position title and reference number.

    Obviously I had applied for positions with other companies, which were much more straightforward so when the job offer from Siemens finally came through it was too late.

    I am very disappointed by the way Siemens treats its potential employees. HR are extremely unprofessional to the point of being disrespectful - I waited for months to hear from them and did not receive replies to my emails while they were interviewing their internal candidates. I was openly told that internal candidates are always given preference. Dreadful and time wasting experience.
