I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC in June 2012.

Business Development Interview

Business Development

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC.

Interview Details – Start with either phone interview, or brief interview in a town closest to you. If you pass the initial interview they will email you a case study that will have to be submitted to them within a week. It will take you a week to complete it. The next step is an interview at their US headquarters in Farmington Hills, Michigan. It will last most of the day and is extremely intense with multiple interviews and even a group case study which you will be observed doing. There a few fun things sprinkled in, but overall it is a very intense process and you will be glad to leave.

Interview Question – The most difficult questions are the ones relating to the case study.   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern
Palo Alto, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC.

Interview Details – The position was at their research branch in North America. I applied through academic community e-mailing list, 3 weeks before I got contacted for setting up an interview.
Only 1 phone interview about 30 minutes duration with probably 2 people from them. Conversation was all about technologies that I've used and especially how I worked around the problems if any in my previous projects (I was then several yrs professional who went back to school for higher degree), meaning there were no questions regarding programming languages / algorithm (except for the one asking if I've used the specific language they planned to use).
I thought I did poorly but got an offer.

Interview Question – Not really difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The only negotiable was starting period. Payment seems fixed for interns. I told them the ending period is flexible but they assigned the shortest period w/o negotiating.

Logistics Planning Intern Interview

Logistics Planning Intern
Charleston, SC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC in August 2011.

Interview Details – I initially knew a few engineering interns who provided me with an HR contact. I emailed them my resume, but they were not looking for people with an International Business background at that time.

They emailed me a year later and called me for a phone interview that had your basic, why should we hire you? what do you know about the company? when would you be available to work? Go over your resume for me etc. They called me up a few hours later and told me I got the job!

Since it was an internship position: just research the company, be confident in your answers and prepare

This is very unusual as the company usually presses any applicants to apply online first and then go through HR.
