The interview lacking any technical knowledge for a position that was looking for engineering students. Many interns lacked any automotive knowledge or awareness of big company environment. I am just trying to get to the word minimum for this response so I don't get fined.
- No question was relative to knowledge of product line or individual abilities. Primary goal was to get to know the person to judge how he or she would react to the environment. The only vetting of candidates appeared to be personal recommendations via current employees. I am just trying to get to the word minimum for this response so I don't get fined. Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Federal-Mogul (Moreno Valley, CA) in July 2015.
July 16th - The staffing agency emailed me about a direct hire and I read the description and called back to express my interest and answer any questions he had for me. After our chat and garnering his belief my staffer set to submitting for me. July 23rd - Received a call/email that the company agreed to a phone interview. I accepted the date. July 24th - Received email confirmation of interview time & date as well as the call in number and pin. July 28th - Called into the line 5 mins early, only had to wait a minute for the interviewer to connect/start the interview. It was only one person, the IT Manager for global support. We started with salutations and his introduction. Next he talked about the company, what they do and it's current affairs. Then we moved on to the site for the position; it's location, size, infrastructure and personnel. After giving a solid overview of operations, products and IT inventory. He then started questions to assess my skills. Typical hypothetical questions that you could expect, printers, helpdesk. peripherals, networking and troubleshooting them all. It depicts a clear image of the job's duties.
- What would you do in this scenario? How would you troubleshoot this? Also threw in one that gauged how you follow company policy, departmental fiscal responsibility and how to turn down/say no to your fellow employee. Lastly the typical, yet seemingly difficult to answer "Tell me about yourself?" question. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Federal-Mogul (Wiesbaden (Germany)) in June 2015.
I was contacted about 6 weeks after I sent an application. I received an email from the regional manager asking if I will be available for a telephone interview the following day. The telephone interview was short and friendly. There were no "difficult" questions. After the telephone interview in the morning, I received an invitation to a two days' assessment center which was going to be held in less than a week. The arrangement for accomodation was quite good and the reception by the company was amazing. The assessment center was quite challenging but the company had made sure that the participants were comfortable. I can't remember any participant looking nervous. I was contacted after 3 days and offered a trainee position in the company.

Round 1 - HR interview over phone with a company representative. Spoke about my background and the basic behavioral questions like Tell me about yourself, why FM and why did you take ME ? I was asked about my visa status and I mentioned to her that I am an international and I will be needing H1B sponsorship after 2 years. She agreed. Round 2 - HR/ Resume based interview over skype. Basic resume based questions being discussed when midway through the interview I was asked what my visa status was. When I told her I am an international student, interview was suspended midway and I was told FM doesn't hire internationals. Very unprofessional and after promising she would forward my resume to another team which hires internationals, she never got back !
