    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Ford Motor Company (Louisville, KY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through Ford Career website. Got a call the next week from HR to schedule a face to face interview. Interviewed the next week with 3 Managers. Interview was awesome. Managers knew a great deal about the job and were willing to answer questions after asking about 15 very challenging questions regarding technical and behavioral aspects. Got a phone call the next day from Dearborn actually conducting the generic higher up headquarters pre screen. Then 4 days later, I received an email from Dearborn asking for more in depth application information. The next day I received my offer which I graciously accepted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Ford Motor Company (Allen Park, MI) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied to posting from Monster,com, brief phone interview, then flight, hotel, & transportation covered for in-person interview in Dearborn. The position I applied to was way out of my league, and I was quite surprised that they even called, but maybe they get a commission for the number of people they bring in to interview? I answered a few basic programming questions over the phone and a couple weeks later they asked me to schedule a time to come to Dearborn. Free flight, free limousine service to the Dearborn Inn (which is a sight to see), $25 dinner voucher, then shuttle transportation to the interview center.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone interview was ridiculous; just a secretary recording your answers to basic object-oriented programming questions. In-person interview was me in front of 3 manager-types with 5 situational questions and 5 technical questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Overall it was very standard and went through your resume and asked questions about specific experiences. It took about half an hour and was with two engineers from different departments. Both were friendly and went into detail about what their role was in their respective departments. There were not too many technical questions in this interview - mainly questions surrounding behavior and your resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ford Motor Company.

    Interview

    I scheduled an interview with Ford through my university and had two different interviews over two days. The first day was an interivew with two Ford employees. Half of the first interview was a behavioral based interview. The second half was based off of a case they had sent me two days prior. The case was very simple but you had to have the financial backing to support your answer. The second interview was based off of the case but this time you were placed with a small team to come to a conclution and then create a presentation.

    Applied online, was contacted several days later to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was with 2 employees conferencing in, they asked basic behavioral questions, nothing technical.
