    I applied online. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process went well. I had a 20 minute interview in person with two supervisors. Johnson Controls is very eager to continue to bring in new talent from College at all ages. If you are thinking about applying for a position, know that once you are brought onto Johnson Controls, you are golden. Two months in I was already meeting with my recruiter talking about my plans for the following year and where I would like to be in the company.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    It took almost 3 months for 2nd interview (F2F) after 1st phone conference interview, however, the interviewer is the same hiring manager and the conversation is almost 70% similarity for both interview session. And yet, never revert / confirm with candidate of the application status even committed to revert after 3 weeks...
    Candidate need to have closure follow-up with HR personnel & the hiring manager on next step / status
    Inefficiency for recruiting talent candidate, doubt of the interest and seriousness in hiring Senior Management candidate in this case

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager called to interview. I was then asked to visit the company HQ to be interviewed by 4 managers, separately. I emailed them twice to ask about their decision but I never heard from them. I think its quite unprofessional for them to invite me over to their office and then not even bother to notify me of their decision. Shows what kind of a company they are.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    I originally gave my resume to a friend who worked full-time at Johnson Controls. She forwarded my information to someone at the company, and HR called me a month or two after to set up an interview. I spoke with HR briefly about my background, and they set up the on-site interview. The on-site interview lasted a couple hours. I interviewed with an HR representative about my skills and background and then met with the director and VP hiring for the department. I also did a brief skills test (more info. in "Most Difficult or Unexpected Question" section).

    I did not receive an offer for the first position for which I interviewed, but because of my other skills and strengths, they passed my information on to another department. I interviewed separately with the other team, and they offered me a long-term internship.

    Interview Questions
    • During the interview, I was given a set of data in Excel to "analyze" and had to make a short presentation about my findings. I had about 30 minutes to complete this step. With my experience at the time (university classes), I found this to be quite difficult because of the large amount of data and the freedom to complete the task.   Answer Question

    QA Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Johnson Controls in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an HR representative approximately 5 days after I applied for the position through the company website. I was then scheduled for a phone screen. The phone screen lasted for approximately 15 minutes and mainly consisted of behavioral questions as well as my skills and experience relevant to the position.

    Early the following week I was contacted by an engineering manager to schedule a phone interview for that same week. The phone interview lasted for approximately half an hour. The manager asked technical and career-oriented questions. What is your experience with functional/regression testing? Give me an example. How would you respond to criticism from a senior engineer?
