    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at BSH Home Appliances USA (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    The initial application consisted of sending a .pdf portfolio (less than 5 MB), resume, and cover letter via e-mail. After that, I was contacted about a month later by an HR professional explaining that I had been selected to move forward in the process. I was flown to Irvine, California for the day, most of which was taken up by the interview. The interview was conducted as a group, with each candidate presenting their portfolios. After that the company took us to lunch, and then we returned to the office to present the results of a small design charette which we were asked to do before coming to the offices.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question was the design charette. Each candidate was asked to create designs based on one of the client's brands, with an emphasis on functional designs for a particular demographic. Specifically, we were asked to design over racks for the Thermador brand for short individuals that may have difficulty lifting heavy items, as well as looking at trends in the late 20s/early 30s age group and taking them into consideration.   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at BSH Home Appliances USA (Sioux Falls, SD) in January 2013.

    Interview

    No interview to speak of. Got contacted by the company by phone and was offered a position, although the pay wasn't quite what I had expected. Definitely not the place I want to spend my career.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntington Beach, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BSH Home Appliances USA (Huntington Beach, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Interview was low key and friendly which had a great deal to do with who was conducting the interview. Discussion centered around department targets and integration within the team, long term career pathing and conversations around skills and experience (both past experience and future development). Salary discussions were held at a later date.

    Interview Questions

    • In light of associate's busy schedules, how will you manage your own onboarding process?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    A higher salary than was originally proposed was able to be negotiated, though it was still markedly below the average salary for that job in that region of the country.

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at BSH Home Appliances USA in May 2010.

    Interview

    Company is suffering from declining US marketshare AND more importantly, is a very minor business unit of its' German parent. Perception is that German parent keeps reorganizing US senior mgt with temporary German execs that don't "get" how to realistically compete in this market as they hold an overwhelmingly majority market share in Europe with very little effort compared to US standards.
