    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Panasonic Automotive Systems Company in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Round 1: I was poached on LinkedIn by a third party recruiter to apply online, so I did. A few weeks later I received an email asking to set up a phone interview with a hiring manager. Early August, I had a phone interview. The questions were very basic i.e. going into details on the things I put on my resume. I was asked if I can start work immediately; they must have loved my resume. I had to decline due to my current internship with another company, but we agreed to keep in touch for future opportunities.

    Round 2: I visited my school's career fair to start looking for internships, and I decided to make a stop at the Panasonic booth. I met the individual that set up my round 1 phone interview and handed her an updated resume. A few weeks later I received an email asking to set up an on-site interview; Panasonic has an office on campus. It was a video conference with three H/W engineers from HQ. Again, questions regarding my resume. This interview wasn't to see if they wanted to hire me; it was to decide what office to put me in as they had already decided to hire me after round 1.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked if I could commute to Peachtree City from Atlanta. I'm still a student with classes to take, so I tried to negotiate working at the office that's on campus. They negotiated a half-week on campus and half-week in Peachtree City, which I took into heavy consideration as working in the HQ actually interests me.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Non-negotiable. Interns are all kept at the same pay-scale.
