    Ford recruiters visited my university, and I was able to meet them at a career fair and through my business organization. I scheduled and got accepted for an on-campus interview. The interview took about an hour and wasn't anything out of the ordinary. It seemed as if they were looking for students with great people skills and a creative business mindset.

    Product Development Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ford Motor in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    After applying on the company website, I was contacted by a recruiter whom I had a short phone interview with consisting of very basic questions (some experience questions, work eligibility, willingness to relocate). After about a week I was contacted directly by Ford and asked to come on site to the Ford talent center. At the talent center they will give a short talk about Ford and show some videos before your interview. I had a panel of 3 people, which appeared to be the standard. They took turns asking a total of 11 questions (5 "engineering" and 6 behavioral). I was at Ford on a Friday and received an offer the following Monday.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no questions that stood out as truly difficult. It didn't appear they were trying to stump you, but rather get to know you. On the other hand, many of the questions had multiple parts (which are read at once), so don't be afraid to ask them to repeat a part of the question. I did it multiple times. My best advice would be to think of several projects you have worked on in the past and know them in and out. Be prepared to answer questions about issues you had during design (time, flaws, restrictions, process), but nothing really technical. Also think of the interactions you had with team members and how you handled the more difficult situations.

      Come to think of it, one difficult question was: Describe a time that I disagreed with a superior and explain how I handled it.
