    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Plymouth, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plymouth, MI
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is a little slow, but due diligence must be done by the company so it's understandable. Interview process was actually a joy. It was panel style. The questions were position based and resume based. They also did a great job in thoroughly explaining the position, what I'd be doing, and how I could progress in my career afterwards.

    Negotiation Details
    Turns out their initial offer was firm and final, but it was good enough for me to start. Bosch's total compensation package is very competitive and fair. I was very pleased with it.

    Customer Logistics Planning Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had applied to a different job via a posting on my college's career website and the HR recruiter e-mailed me back regarding the customer logistics planning co-op. I agreed to apply for the position instead.
    I had two interviews, both over the phone: the first was with the manager of the department and the second was with the team leader. Basically they described the position, hours, what they needed most from an employee and asked a series of typical situational interview questions.

    UI Design Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Palo Alto, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Great - always knew what to expect. They got in touch two months after my initial application and were really nice and positive. Spoke with two members of the small team in Palo Alto including a manager and walked them through a project (humor helps) that was about 3D IxD. Asked about how the company works and was warned it wasn't like a design firm but was engineer driven, which is expected. Got contacted within ten days like they said with a simple design challenge related to the project that took about the expected three hours excluding presentation and formatting. Sent it in, and got an offer two days later.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I found the opening position on a career services website my schools offers. I applied through the website and I also sent an email to the contact person on the job posting letting them know a bit about myself and that I have applied through the website. I also asked what are the next steps I should take. They called be a week or two after asked for a sit-down interview. I was interviewed the first time in November. They asked me questions regarding my skills/experiences. Then they told me the tasks I would be doing if I was hired and asked me what skills I have to prove that I'm a good candidate for the tasks. Then they asked me programming questions and what I am (or not) able to do. I haven't heard from them for about two months afterwards even though I sent them a follow up email thanking them for the interview. After the two months, I emailed the interviewer again asking for the status of the position. The day after I sent the email, they contacted me asked for a second interview. They pretty much gave me a second chance at which I was offered the intern position on the spot.
