I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at TE Connectivity in July 2013.

Interview Details The internship post was listed on my university department's job board. I applied with my CV by email. About one month later they processed applications, and I received a call inviting me for a telephone interview. The telephone interview was relaxed, and after, I was invited for a final interview in person at one of their offices. There, I was interviewed by various team members while touring the site, and asked some questions about their products to test my observation and critical thinking skills. I met current employees in the position who I could discuss their experiences with. Overall, the team made it a very pleasant experience.

Interview Question – At one stage in the interview, I was handed some materials manufactured by the company and told to report on my observations   Answer Question

Engineering Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 months - interviewed at TE Connectivity.

Interview Details During a career fair at my school, I expressed my interest in TE Connectivity. About 4 or 5 months later, I received a call about an opportunity to interview for a summer internship. I'll admit that I went into this interview as unprepared as I've ever been, at the time I was kinda overwhelmed with school, which is no excus.

Interview Question – Have you ever had a team member who was not contributing his role and how did you handle it.   Answer Question

Materials Engineer Interview

Materials Engineer
Fuquay-Varina, NC (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TE Connectivity in April 2011.

Interview Details TE uses corporate, located in PA, to do most of the hiring. Some of the hiring is done by the local facility. Either way, it is very systematic and similar to the hiring approach any company would use. There are no surprises.

Interview Question – I had to teach a 5 minute lesson.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was right out of college so I was just happy to have a job... so I was like, "when can I start?" TE does not really negotiate- you get what they offer. They have statistics on the average salary for every position... so they know how to offer competitive salaries.
