Very Difficult Interview

Product Development Engineer Interview

Product Development Engineer
Cologne (Germany)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ford Motor in January 2009.

Interview Details – The first part of the interview was with a guy from HR that explained a bit on the company, then I was taken to the office of my future supervisor for the interview. The interview was conducted by the supervisor AND his manager and was technically very challenging - as I expected it would be considering the area where I applied. The interview was conducted in a very professional way and not only limited to technical questions but also concentrated on language and cultural knowledge.

Interview Question – A specific question on how to attach the connecting link of an anti-roll bar to a suspension strut in order to provoke/not provoke torque steer in a front suspension.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was not much room for negotiation. The job definition was defined by a fixed salary.

Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Manufacturing Engineer
Allen Park, MI

I applied online and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Ford Motor in May 2014.

Interview Details – The hiring process consisted of a Ford recruiter calling myself and talking to me for about a half hour. After that I received an email for setting up a phone interview the following week. Three days later, I received a call for a on site panel interview, the following week. Two weeks after that I received a call asking me if I was still interested and I received an offer the same day.

Interview Question – All of the questions were essay type questions and without vast experience, would be extremely difficult to answer.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The offer was better than what I told the recruiter I was looking for.

IT Intern Interview

IT Intern
Dearborn, MI

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Ford Motor in September 2012.

Interview Details – Overall the process was fairly painless. After applying online I received an email to set up a phone interview. After my phone interview, which was with 3 people, a few weeks passed and I received an offer. The part of the process that takes the longest and is most grueling is the onboarding process. Getting the information about your position and start take a long time but it is very rewarding when you get to see all of your options.

Interview Question – Most of the questions were behavioral. They were all pretty much "name a time" or "what would you do if" style questions. The one question that stuck out the most and is always challenging for people is "why [insert company name]."   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate.
