Product Development Engineer Interview

Product Development Engineer
Dearborn, MI

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Ford Motor in April 2014.

Interview Details – Typical situation based interview. Employees seemed genuinely excited about the direction Ford was heading as a company. They expressed confidence in Ford's business model. After about 2 hours of questioning was complete. It was really good experience. They roll out the red carpet for travel, lodging,and food.

Interview Question – Interview was on par with most situation based interviews. No technical questions were asked. Your resume should speak to your technical experience. Just to be prepared to be surround with about 8 to 9 more candidates who are just as nervous as you are, but once the conversation starts your nerves will settle.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Work seemed exciting, however I am from south east New Orleans and I was not excited about leaving home

Interviewed at Ford Motor

Interview Details – I attend an onsite interview for the Ford College Graduate rotational program. The process was relatively quick an painless. A case study was sent out for you to have prepared in advance. You discuss the case with other candidates and justify your decisions. The actual interview was with two people and they gave standard behavioral questions.

Interview Question – Everything was very straight forward. You would be given a business scenario are asked what to do. Most of these questions boiled down to, "would you sacrifice quality/safety/ethics for a deadline/profit?"   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I don't think any salary is high enough to get me to live in Detroit

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.
