    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview

    There are a lot of rounds of interviews for this position. You start off with a personality assessment, they want to make sure you are right for the role. Then you move on forward to a HireVue. Next, you have a phone call/interview with an HR person who tells you more about the position to make sure this position is great for you. If you move on from there, the next step is 2 manager interviews 1 hour long. They ask you typical questions about your experience with working on a team, working in engineering, or any leadership roles you have been in. Finally, the last round of in reviews is a presentation and panel interview an hour-long with some executives. Then you have to wait about 2-3 weeks to hear back from them to see if you received an offer. The whole time the company communicates with you really well and makes sure you understand the entire process.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Houston, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of 4 interviews over a 6-ish week period. First was directly with the hiring manager. Next, an Account Manager who represents the end users I would be selling to. Then, an executive level manager, and finally an HR rep who was more of a formality to check the "is this a normal human" boxes.

    Virtual Interview. Process is a little strange if you haven't completed one before. They ask you several questions and you have 30 seconds to prepare an answer and three minutes to respond via webcam.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Columbia, SC (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    I met with the Schneider representatives at a job fair for my university and they soon reached out to me for an interview. The interview was fairly straight forward with it being at their site and I interviewed with an engineering manager and a senior engineer. We talked for maybe an hour and they did a great job explaining the position and what it would entail. After the interview I was given a tour of the facility.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview

    The internal HR recruiter was very pleasant. She called me to talk a little about the role and set up a phone interview with the hiring manager.

    However, when I spoke to the hiring manager, she was disorganized, could not keep track of her list of questions for me and was not focused on what I was saying at all. I felt very qualified for the role, but she was extremely dismissive of my answers and background and rushed through the interview as though she would rather not have talked to me at all. I got an email from the recruiter a few days later saying they wanted someone with more experience. If the hiring manager was going to judge me based on my resume alone, since she clearly did not want to even listen to my answers during the call, why waste the time to set up the call in the first place? It felt like she was going through the motions of the interview based on the obligation that the HR person had already scheduled the call, as if it was scheduled against the hiring manager's will.
