No Offer – Interviewed in Köln (Germany) – Reviewed Jan 21, 2013
Interview Details –
1- Telephone Interview: asking about your background, motivation to join, how do you react in some situations, what do you know about the company
2- Assessment center: it did not run like normal assessment centers where all the applicants have to do some activities together. However, we just met at the beginning of the day and during switches between the interviews and at the end of the day.
It had three phases where every one of us had to do personally with interviewers
- Technical interview: asking about every thing you know for the position you applied for, chalenges that is facing the industry in this field and your background for sure. Also how would you react in some situations which they tell you about
- Role play
- Problem solving: your given an internal problem which you have to understand fully and give a presentation for two guys from the managment level. you have to explain why you chose such solution and convince them.
- German language was not a must to do the interviews (at least officially not idea if it had any influence on the decision!)
- A real interesting experience no matter your chosen or not
- The only thing that I find really bad is that they did not give me a feedback on the time planned (which was three weeks by the way!). I had almost to beg for a feedback (thats when it was so obvious that I was not chosen). However, I still find it really annoying simply not to give a feedback because I am not chosen!!. but to be honest I got the feedback like 6 or 8 weeks later only by Telephone and till now (more than one year later) did not get any official reply!
Interview Question – Every thing on that day was going so well till I had to do this Problem solving thing. I personally found that the time given for fully understanding the problem and doing a presentation was short. For sure for some other people it was Ok, but that is what is it all about right? they want to figure out how good can you work under time pressure and stress!! Answer Question

Interview Details – I was interviewing for an internship position in Ford Treasury. The interview consisted of a case that was given out a few days beforehand, we had to create a financial model to calculate some numbers and write a one-page memo to the CFO presenting our recommendations and reasoning. The interview was 2 (interviewers) on 1 (me), I handed out printed copies of my memo and presented my findings. After that, they asked me some more specific questions. Then we went on to other general technical and fit questions. The interview was a bit tough, but I connected very well with the interviewers, and despite the challenging questions, they were very friendly. There was only one round, they emailed me back a week and a half later with an offer.

Interview Details – I contacted the person I know working in ford and through them I approached the senior officials of the company. They spoke to me for a long time to know much about me.

After several meetings with him and practically proving my knowledge on the floor, he was convinced and that's how I got the job.

Declined Offer – Interviewed in Chennai (India) – Reviewed Sep 11, 2012
Interview Details –
First of all they sent me four long documents to translate; two in German to English and two in English to German with a time limit of only 1 hour!!
Then, a German expert called and talked to me in German. She asked me to introduce myself, talked about my work experience etc. to test my German language skills. It took 10-15 minutes.
Then, they called me in the company office for the Panel interview. It had that German expert and two managers from the operations team.
It was a grilling session. They asked me various questions about my last job profile, challenges I faced in my work, why Ford, my strengths etc. Then the German expert spoke to me for 5 minutes and again tested my German skills.
The most irritating question which they kept on asking repeatably was "what is your marital status?" "what are you marriage plans?" "when will you get married?" I wanted to tell them its none of your business but obviously couldn't say such words.
Also, they have 10 hours of shift; 9 hours of work and 1 hour of break!!!!! I think no other company does this.
And yes, they called me at 9:00 in the morning for the interview and kept me waiting till 3:45 in the evening. I was so exhausted waiting till that time that I was not even interested in giving the interview!!!!
