This is at the heart of our employee-owned company and has earned us place as one of the Chicago Tribune’s 2019 Top Chicago Workplaces. In response to COVID-19, S&C has implemented preemptive measures for the safety of our team members and our ability to support our customers, especially when it matters most. As everyone adjusts to this unprecedented situation, S&C remains dedicated to keeping the lights on. Throughout this pandemic, our team members continue to display admirable flexibility and dedication to supporting the essential services of our customers. As one team, we are all in this together.

They are responsible for making the very equipment that keeps the lights on, especially for industries needed most during COVID-19.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at S&C Electric Company (Chicago, IL) in Nov 2020


    First there was a phone screen with HR, then a phone screen with the hiring manager and then a virtual video interview split into an hour with the hiring manager, half an hour with the other manager, a half hour technical interview with two of the engineers, and a half hour interview with another two engineers, then 45 minutes with HR and finally a 30 minute technical presentation on a topic of my choice for a panel of 10+ people (not sure of the total number).

    The questions skewed more technical but in the full technical interview, the questions felt like stuff that you would see on one of your midterms. Very much questions that have a correct answer, not looking to see how you think (questions you'd see in some of your earlier ME classes). The questions were definitely something you'd be able to answer if you were fresh out of school, recently refreshed on the topics, or could quickly google.
