    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Longmont, CO (US)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    The overall interview process was very straightforward. You get contacted by a HR rep first and they will ask you to answer a couple of questions through email. Then you will have a phone call with them and go through a preliminary screening interview. This will only take around 30 minutes. Next, you are scheduled a technical interview with one of the engineer managers. This is much more in-depth and took around an hour and half for me.

    Trade Compliance Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Baltimore, MD (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was long but average at the most. You interview with 4 or 5 different people including heads of the department you're applying for which can be intimidating if you're not used to that interview style. The questions they ask are your basic interview questions so you will repeat a lot of answers.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Danfoss International (Ames, IA (US)).

    Interview

    I participated in a full day onsite interview. I was told I would be notified of the results by the end of the week. I contacted the recruiter to ask for feedback and was told recruiters don’t have access to the information. The interview occurred 6 weeks ago and I still have not been contacted by the Company. Very poor candidate experience.
