I applied online – interviewed at Schneider in February 2015.
First was an initial phone interview with HR (lasted 30 min), second was another phone interview with hiring manager (lasted 45 min) and third was a face-to-face interview with three individuals at once (lasted about an hour).
Everyone has their own interviewing process but the questions asked didn't really pertain to the job nor how my past experiences can contribute to the position. The questions were fairly easy but I was asked multiple at the same time. It seemed like they were trying to intimidate me and make me feel uncomfortable (most likely to see how I respond). At one point the interviewer said (kind of laughing) I'm playing stump the interviewer. I left this interview thinking that this might not be a place I want to work.

I applied online – interviewed at Schneider.
Great comminication, long process for hiring and onboarding. HR staff was friendly and helpful. Interview process seemed to have too many steps for a mid-range position. Would be helpful to know the whole process upfront to knwo what to expect in terms of their time frame.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Schneider (Chicago, IL (US)).
I was approached at a campus recruiting event at the University I attended. First, I took a phone interview that took 20 minutes. The phone interview included basic behavioral interview questions such as what are your goals, previous job experience, and the tell me about a time when...
After the phone interview, I was invited for an on-site interview. I was interviewed with two sales associates and was asked questions about my previous job experience, why i thought I was a good fit for the sales role, and in what situations I have shown leadership skills.
I was offered a job following that interview about a week after.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Schneider.
Applied online. Process moves quickly, someone from office of opening will contact you and explain that someone from HR will call for a phone screening. HR does screening and quickly relays the information back to Recruiter or Division Manager within office. Time is set and the interview process takes about 3-5 hours with about 2-4 interviews. Questions are behavioral based and even do role playing scenarios in each interview. After being drained from answering all the questions, you may get an invite to go to lunch. After that you will be free to go, but as mentioned expect the process to be lengthy and thorough.
- A role playing scenario will be presented usually in the form of working with someone who has a poor attitude, doesn't want to listen, or is just being difficult. 1 Answer
No negotiation. Simply take it or leave it because Schneider's budget "doesn't allow for it"

I applied online. The process took 6 days – interviewed at Schneider (Dallas, TX (US)) in August 2014.
The interview process was really simple, I had a phone interview once or twice and then went in for a small panel interview with some of the managers onsite. Over all it was quick and they just want to see if you have any drive, competitiveness and get a feel for you and your personality. Questions were the typical interview questions.
