    Interview

    I got in contact with the HR department regarding an internship position. They scheduled an in-person interview that took place on site. There was an initial behavioral interview, led by two employees, and was about general questions such as programming/education background, motives, and what I expected to gain from this opportunity. Next were two short technical interviews, and finally a general discussion led by a manager, about what to expect, assuming I get this position.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview

    I applied online and 2 weeks later I was contacted for a phone interview. Questions were pretty easy. HR then asked me to take an online assessment. Once I completed that, I was asked to come in for an interview. I met with two people. Interview lasted 30+ minutes. They asked me to stay to meet with 2 more people. They interviewed me for another half hour. Really great interview experience. They were thorough with their questions and really open to answering mine.

    The HireVue process was very simple. I thought it was great to be able to complete on your own time. You need to make sure to have a computer or phone with video capabilities for the screening.

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Boston, MA (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    You start off with a personality assessment and a video interview. The personality assessment asks weird questions but its meant to gauge if you're a leader and what type of leader you'd be. After that is the one-sided video interview. You have 30 seconds to think of an answer and 30secs to 2 mins to answer, depending on the question. It's pretty straightforward "why do you want this job", "why SE?".

    After that is an HR interview, 2 manager interviews, and a panel interview that requires a 15-minute presentation. I didn't make it past the HR interview because apparently, I'm not "passionate" enough. Sure. Besides that the process is straightforward and fairly easy questions. Not sure how the manager interview is.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric.

    Interview

    I had two interview. Both of which were panel-style. The first was technical, where many standard questions were asked in the first half with the last half getting filled with a codility test and discussion.

    The second interview was less technical, and seemed to be more about personality and fit. Both interviews lasted about an hour.

    Interview Questions

    • While I was prepared for the gamut of questions (which were asked) such as the last good technical book I read, some recent tech that I find interesting, challenges I've overcome, etc, an unexpected question was asked about my pet peeves. Although I wasn't ready for that ahead of time, we explored questions on that subject for a while, times it's come up, how it was handled, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate for more. The hiring manager explained the service they used to map skillsets+jobs to salaries and told me that the salary they offered was within that target range. However, I had several pieces of evidence to present which I felt warranted a higher salary. We parted amicably, with the hiring manager thanking me for the research I had done and that he would look into it. About a week later, they contacted me again with a higher offer and I accepted.
