    Lead Hardware Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    In my experience, this company requires you to fill out a lot of paperwork, then jerks you around with scheduling interviews, ultimately deciding they didn't want me after all without giving a reason. I've applied twice, had to fill out an entire job application and solve 15 pages of very simple electrical problems, then hand scan all of them in before even being considered for an interview. Afterwards, interviews kept getting rescheduled last minute then nothing. Don't bother.

    Interview Questions
    • Identifying some of the diodes/transistors. They use very, very odd symbols for Zeners, LEDs and Mosfets I had never seen before. But then again you can look them up.   Answer Question

    Purchasing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Autoliv.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for the initial interview, it went very well they had a long sheet of situational questions, asked me to break down a BOM of a finished part they had put in front of me, also asked me to complete the "why manholes are round question."

    About a week and a half later I conducted the second interview with three members of the project purchasing department. I don't believe any additional questions were really asked by the interview panel, it was more of a discussion of what I would be handling and to see if I would be interested. I received the offer about three days after that.

    Interview Questions
    • None were especially difficult, pretty much your usual questions   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't much negotiation. The salary was competitive for this type of internship.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I got an email from my department about the position at Autoliv, sent the hiring manager my resume and cover letter, and was contacted a few weeks later for an interview. I had two engineers interview me. They had a list of general interview questions (nothing technical), such as, "Tell me a time when you've demonstrated good writing qualities". The interview eventually became casual after I started asking them questions about the company. At the end of the interview, they even gave me a tour of their facility!

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a situation where you had a conflict with a teammate.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    It seemed like a great place to work at, however I got an attractive out-of-state position that I couldn't turn down.
