Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI).

Interview

Process took more than 3 months. Was contacted by a recruiter by email originally, and had a phone interview with hiring manager a week later. I was then invited to the company headquarters in Dearborn. The face to face interview was split between a 3 person panel interview, followed by a tour of the company grounds. The panel interviewers were very easy going, and seemed enthusiastic about describing their respective departments. They said decisions would be within 2 weeks, but didn't hear from them until 4 weeks later. Thought the interview went well, but I was not chosen.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company.

    Interview

    The interview requested my works including writings and source codes before. 1st Phone Screening: After a day, he called me with starting the conversation of local restaurant. It was a phone interview. He looked and asked several questions regarding my works and resume. He asked several signal processing questions, but I screwed up. He recommended a book. He was going to decide whether to hire after a week with discussing colleagues. It took several weeks to do next step. 2nd On-Site Interview: I was invited to one of the research units of the Ford Motor Company. I met the supervisor and two staffs of the research team. They extensively asked the questions regarding how I solved the problem and how I interact with team members during my previous projects on the resume. I think the staffs made questions before the interview. The supervisor has my works submitted before, and he let me explain the things. After that I get the notification shortly that we can proceed to next step with hiring agency. They also took me for a month to give the final offer.

    Interview

    it's been a few years, but I didn't make it. I had a few interviews with Ford back then. I had interviews directly with the hiring managers. there is two ways; you can either get a job with Ford or through an agency as a contractor
