Systems Administrator Interview

Spartanburg, SC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Magna International.

Interview Details – Used a recruiter. Went in for the interview and met with the IT Manager and HR Manager. We talked for a while about my experience and they offered me the job the next day. The IT guy I interviewed with knew a lot and knew what needed to be done. He knew what he was asking and had no problem hiring someone that knew stuff he didn't. I thought he was quite intelligent and high energy.

Production Worker Interview

Production Worker
Highland Park, MI

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Magna International in March 2010.

Interview Details – I recieved a call to come in for an interview, when I arrived, I introduced myself to the receptionist and was told to have seat. while I was waiting, remembered not to look nervous or sweaty, just to remain calm and cheerful. When the human resource interviewer came form his office, he spoke my name and intoduced himself to me. We entered his office and i waited for him to sit down first before I did, and then the interview began. He ask me questions that I expected to be asked such as: Why did you leave your previous employer?, Why should we hire you?, What are your strengths and weakness?, If I called your previous employer what would he/she say about you? and so on. I can honestly say that I looked him directly in the eye on each answer that I gave, looking to see his reaction to the feedback I was giving. After it was over I waited for him to extend his hand and I extened mines and we shook hands and it was over. I thanked the receptionist and asked for the HR business card and I left the building.

Quality Engineering Co-op Student Interview

Quality Engineering Co-op Student

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Magna International in June 2014.

Interview Details – The interview started 40 minutes late and while I was waiting I was not given a reason why. During the interview, my interviewer seemed distracted and kept receiving calls. However, he explained the situation to me in the end, telling me that they were moving everything around in the office and it was an emergency and he apologized a lot. He was also a very caring person and a very understanding. Once leaving the office, I met a few people working there and they were all extremely friendly and it seemed like a very enjoyable place to work.

Interview Question – very general questions - nothing too tricky   Answer Question
