Product Design Engineer Interview

Product Design Engineer

Interviewed at Panduit

Interview Details Called by an HR specialist, and told to take a drug test prior to interview. After two weeks, they sent me to get my drug test done and scheduled an in person interview. The interview was brief (30 minutes), and casual. About a week later I received a call asking when I could start.

Interview Question – All the questions were fairly standard; prior experience, education, etc.   Answer Question

Program Manager Interview

Program Manager
Tinley Park, IL (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Panduit in March 2014.

Interview Details Phone interview with a recruiter followed by another phone interview with the hiring manager. Went on-site for two hours and met with people from the talent acquisition group. The offer stage was strange. I asked for an extension to make my decision by one day through voice-mail and email. I got no response and assumed I had the night to make my final decision. I received an email around 7pm that evening saying the request to extend was declined and the offer was no longer on the table. The ending came out very unprofessionally. It felt like they were avoiding my rejection by rejecting me first.

Interview Question – They focused on behavioral based interview questions, asked a lot about specific scenarios I had been in and how I handled them and what I learned.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I received a counter-offer from my current company that was too hard to pass up.

District Sales Manager Interview

District Sales Manager

I applied through another source - interviewed at Panduit in August 2013.

Interview Details Varies--changes every year. Currently, they use an outside recruiter. A colleague interviewed for a promotion and the hiring manager kept texting and using his I-pad. It took them 10 weeks to make a decision, with no communication to the internal candidates during that time.

Interview Question – to paraphrase: you just surgery a few months ago, are you sure you are up to the task?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate salary as they would not budge on the vacation time.
