    It was quiet unaware about technical interview,
    Interview consisted of basic questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is very slow. I interviewed with them and there was a 3 week lag time until I got a call back regarding the offer. From there, I accepted and there was another 3 week process to let me know when I started. Additionally, there was a month in between the time I filled out the application and when I got a call back.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, WI (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, WI (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    They had me give a powerpoint presentation about my past engineering work. Precarious task considering most of what i have ever engineered is done with very strict confidentiality agreements.

    They also try and assess your creativity and eng knowledge to some extent by putting you on the spot. It is somewhat like being grilled in front of a Graduate Review board when you get your MS or Phd. They don't try to learn about you as a person so much as assess your robotic and calculative potential. I am an intelligent and effective engineer, but not always an eloquent speaker and I believe that worked against me a bit. I feel like they want only valedictorian / deans list types here. I found the process quite disappointing, and learned little about any one that interviewed me or the true workings of the company. They skim over answering questions asked by candidates. Overall a bizarre and ineffective interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    Had high hopes, $$$ was awesome, but I did not have a warm feeling at all from the interview process. Also their CEO Mr. Molinaroli... Read the news. That is all I will mention about that. Lack of Ethical values at the top are a big red flag for me.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume on Career site and got a phone screen set up for the same week. Asked me to tell me about myself and then explained what I would be doing at the internship. Was expecting to progress to an in person interview with the Hiring manager but instead was hired in about a week after the phone screen. Pleasant experience.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. $17.50 for a part-time college internship is very nice therefore negotiation is not needed.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process went well. I had a 20 minute interview in person with two supervisors. Johnson Controls is very eager to continue to bring in new talent from College at all ages. If you are thinking about applying for a position, know that once you are brought onto Johnson Controls, you are golden. Two months in I was already meeting with my recruiter talking about my plans for the following year and where I would like to be in the company.
