Interview preparation: Tips for success

  • Schneider

    Research Schneider

  • Question mark

    Prepare questions

  • Chat bubble with "Me" inside

    Tell your story

  • Documents with pen

    Discuss real life experiences

1. Get to know Schneider

Take the time to get to know Schneider. We don’t expect you to be industry experts, but you should show that you have made the effort to research Schneider. This also helps you come up with questions to ask your interviewer regarding the company or role. We recommend visiting schneider.com and further exploring schneiderjobs.com

It’s also important to get to know the individual(s) you will be meeting with. Spend some time reading your interviewer’s LinkedIn profile. This will provide you with some talking points.

2. Come prepared with questions

This isn't just our opportunity to get to know you; it’s also your opportunity to get to know Schneider. We want you to be excited to come in to work every day. The only way that happens is if you work for a company that you believe in — one that you truly want to work for. So, ask us about the things that matter to you. We’ll be happy to give you answers.

3. Be ready to discuss real-life experiences

This may be the most important tip on the list. You should know that Schneider uses a behaviorally grounded, competency-based interview style. That’s a fancy way of saying we think real-life examples are the best way to tell your own story. To prepare for the interview, think through your life experiences — things that you accomplished in school, at work or in the community.

Ideas to help you prepare:

  • Provide a specific example of a time when a co-worker or classmate criticized your work in front of others. How did you respond? Did that event shape the way you communicate with others?
  • Describe two specific goals you set for yourself. Did you meet them? What steps did you take to ensure you met your goal? What did you learn from the experience?

4. Think of the interview as an opportunity to sell yourself

Know your resume and accomplishments. As you respond to questions, use elements of those accomplishments to craft your reply. More importantly, if you are not asked questions that will reveal your traits and experiences, take the initiative to work them into the conversation and sell your story. Your time will be limited, so use it wisely. Good luck — we know you will do great! For more resources, check out our Slice of Orange blog.
