Intern Interview

Intern
Greer, SC

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at BMW Manufacturing Corporation.

Interview Details – The interview process was very odd. They had me interview for six separate positions, none of which were the one I had applied for through my university's career fair. This was disappointing to me, though I decided to put my game face on and give it my best effort. However, I was not offered a position.

Engineering Co-Op Interview

Engineering Co-Op
Spartanburg, SC

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BMW Manufacturing Corporation in December 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online on the website. First was a phone interview with HR, then I was flown to the plant for interview day. A large group of students were given tours and lunch and we had the interviews in a large open area full of tables up on the mezzanine. I interviewed for 5 different co-op positions, and then had to rank them from most desirable to least. Said my goodbyes and waited for response. Most of the interviews were a "panel" of 2 or 3 people interviewing me.

Interview Question – None - interview was very relaxed, they mostly just asked me questions about my resume.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiation allowed.

Mechanical Engineering Co-Op Interview

Spartanburg, SC

I applied online and interviewed at BMW Manufacturing Corporation.

Interview Details – Initial communications were very good and the travel benefits were good for getting to the interview site. Everything was paid for from this aspect. After hiring however, there was no compensation for re-location. Overall it was a very good interviewing experience however interaction with HR after this point unfortunately was limited.

Interview Question – No unexpected technical questions. There were only questions about past experiences, e.g. "Explain a time when you demonstrated extraordinary leadership."   Answer Question

Mechanical Engineering Co-Op Interview

Mechanical Engineering Co-Op
Greer, SC

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BMW Manufacturing Corporation in March 2014.

Interview Details – BMW came to my school for a career fair and I went and talked to the recruiters. I ended up giving them my resume and the next day I got a call asking if I would be able to do an interview that Friday. After the initial interview, a week passed I got an email inviting me to the plant for a tour and interviews in two weeks.

 After the tour was completed we had a small information session and then we had the opportunity to eat lunch with the department managers (the people who would be interviewing us). It was a great ice-breaker because I just so happened to eat lunch with one of the guys that interviewed me. Anyway, most people we given 2-3 pre-assigned interviews (I personally was given 5). Most questions related to your resume so know it very very well.

Fall Semester Intern Interview

Fall Semester Intern

Interviewed at BMW Manufacturing Corporation

Interview Details – Spoke with a recruiter at career showcase, and was told to apply online, which I did. Quickly heard back that they wanted to interview me at the manufacturing plant in South Carolina. Setting up the flights was very easy, and they have the day-long interview process structured very well. There is an information session and plant tour in the morning, then lunch, then interviews with specific departments in the afternoon. I heard back about a week after the interview day that I got a position.

Interview Question – It varies based on the department you are being interviewed by, but be sure to have a good reason for why you want to work at BMW.   Answer Question

Environmental Engineering Inter Interview

Environmental Engineering Inter
Greer, SC

I applied through college or university - interviewed at BMW Manufacturing Corporation in November 2013.

Interview Details – The process took a day, but the actual interview was about 30min. They paid all the expense for your travel. There are more than 4 students from my school and my major interviewing for the same position(and we are the 2nd best program in the country) so competition was quite tough.
