    Project Chief Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Chrysler recruiter emailed to notify me of the opening and again 10 days later to remind me. I had had an initial phone screening with her 3 months earlier for a different position. I sent an online application and 2 months later got called to an interview with the Systems Responsible (Director), a DR (Manager) and another PC (Program Manager).
    The interview was short: 45min. It started with an explanation of the complex matrix org. chart, an overview of my career, the reason to leave my current employer and then behavioral/situational questions. There was no time for questions for my part which left me unsatisfied as I had time to sell myself but no time to find out if I will be a good fit and have a fair chance to be happy and successful in this role.
    Two weeks later I got a voicemail from a person from a 3rd party company in Oregon with an offer sent through email. After overnight review I called him back and explained offer is inferior to my current compensation and floated a higher figure that would motivate me to change. The hired negotiator circled back with HR and in an hour sent me a 1-liner email saying they can't accommodate. I declined the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell us of an occasion where you were not satisfied with your performance
      Tell me of a time when you need it to use creativity to solve a problem
      Give us an example of a time when you needed to go beyond your responsibilities to understand the customers expectations

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer too close to my current compensation. Better base pay but slightly lower accounting for the lower benefits.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, and just about three weeks later HR scheduled the first round interview. The first round phone interview was pretty basic (somewhat stiff), lasted about 15-20 minutes. Less then a week later I was then scheduled for a second round interview with two of the hiring Brand Managers. This was a little more relaxed, A get to know you kind of thing. It lasted about 30 minutes. I felt good about the second interview, but 6-7 weeks later I was told via email "Thank you for your interest in a position with Chrysler. While your background has many impressive aspects, we have selected candidates who more closely fit our current business needs. Again, thank you for your interest in Chrysler. We wish you the best in your career endeavors."

    Seat Engineer Interview

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

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager wanted to set up a face-to-face interview, but I could not make it to the interview location, so a Skype interview was arranged instead. They were very accommodating and understanding when setting up the interview. The Skype interview went as usual with a few technical issues at first, but everything was worked out very quickly. A job offer was extended to me in a matter of hours after interviewing, but the hiring manager wanted an answer within one business day, so there was very little time to consider all factors.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a time when you worked in a group where one or more people did not pull their weight and did not put forth the necessary effort to complete the project. What did you do about it?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I wanted to pursue other opportunities and the time given to answer yes or no was too short to consider other options.

    Engineering Manager Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is comfortable in that the questions are geared towards finding out who you really are (situational questions). You want the person doing the interview to know, because you don't want a job that doesn't fit you. Being honest is the most important part. Communication is essential at Chrysler and cross-cultural communication is also essential.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part of interviewing is the "What would you do with a bad employee question" - that's hard because they want you to be able to make tough calls, but sometimes "bad employees" are just the victims of bad management. I felt that they wanted me to say, that in the end, if someone doesn't perform - they need to be let go.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No salary negotiations occur. They tell you based on the job and your experience and past pay.
