Faurecia Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Process Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Faurecia.
Interview Details – They do not compensate interviewers for their expenses. This is a very unusual, and predatory,business practice. The HR manager is a complete coward, and when some issue came up he sent someone else out to make excuses for his ineptitude.
Interview Question – Nothing to difficult, but in each set they will subject you to certain unexpected distractions. They appeared to be looking to see how you would react, given a task, and multiple interruptions. One had an alarm set on a set of stop watches hanging from his desk which continually went off during the interview. Answer Question
Human Resources Intern Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Faurecia.
Interview Details – 2 interviews, one with recruiter, one with manager.
First interview was face-to-face (no reimbursement for travel expenses), was a pretty well structured interview, general CV screening and questions about motivation. Second interview had to be the same day, but the manager was busy, thus i had to wait. In the end, manager said she was busy and promised to contact me (she didn't). After 3 weeks sent a follow-up e-mail (request for another interview), answered the same day and manager called me without any notice. The interview was also very structured, nothing too hard, motivation and skills/competencies related to work. Next day offered a position in organisation. Offered very good salary, but during all the recruitment process it seemed like they did not care about me at all, thus choose another organisation.
Interview Question – Very general interviews, cv screening. motivation questions.
Some of questions I remember:
How do you see yourself in 5 years?
How do you determine success (basically same as previous question)?
What are your 5 major competencies/strengths?
What is your greatest weakness? Answer Question

Lean Process Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Faurecia.
Interview Details – I had the opportunity to talk with few HR persons during a career fair event program during which I handed in my CV. They called me two weeks later for an interview at their plant facilities and offer to cover the transportation expenses.
Very welcoming persons and friendly interview with the plant management team.
There was nothing really unexpected that was touched on or discussed.
During the two interviews held at their facilities with the production director and the local branch manager, we went through my CV, knowledge and motivation. After a long visit of their facilities they explained to me what they expect from me.
All of this was pretty straightforward and there was nothing unexpected or difficult in their interview that I could not have anticipated from the first phone conversation we had and the type of job they were offering.
Interview Question – There was nothing really difficult beside the basic knowledge of the lean process which was the main aspect of the job offered. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I finally received another offer from a other company that suited better my need and my objective.
