    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Continental.

    Interview

    They usually choose their candidates based on their interactions during the career fairs. At least this is true for the Transmission Business Unit in Deer Park, IL. They usually gauage based on interests. I heard that quite a few of interns get in by talking about their penchant for cars. I talked about my interest and experience in power electronics and that got their attention. After which, they scheduled an on site interview where I interviewed with 4 Senior Staff Engineers separately and had one interview with a person from HR. The process was very smooth and it went on without much fuss.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Continental in August 2014.

    Interview

    First phone screen by HR. Then scheduled a tech interview in a month. Tech interview was for an hour- asked questions about experience, resume, academic background. The person was really friendly and gave me all the information regarding the position I was interviewing for.
    Finally called for an on-site after another month.
    On-site interview was standard- Technical test, Panel interview with 2 engineers from the team, then with 2 managers and finally director. The people were friendly, and seemed professional. Although I have to say the people taking the tech interview were not prepared at all. They were making up random questions- most of them irrelevant.
    Now the worst part of the interview: After the onsite, I waited for a week, and mailed HR regarding status. She said it will take a week or more. A month later, I inquired about the status again with the two HR people who had scheduled my interview. Both didn't reply. I figured, they must be busy. So I waited another month, and inquired again. Yet again, no reply from both recruiters as well as the hiring manager.
    I never expected such an unprofessional treatment from a company like this. Even after an onsite, they did not have the courtesy to reply with a decision. So I have no response from anyone from the company in 3 months after the on-site interview- really frustrating. I assumed it to be a reject.
    The people in HR should have the courtesy of at least responding to people who have interviewed. And giving a decision even if it is a reject. Cold treatment with no response is no way for a company to treat it's potential candidates.
