Truck Driver/Test Driver Interview

Truck Driver/Test Driver
Portland, OR

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Roush Industries in June 2014.

Interview Details – I submitted my application through a job search web site, a quick app. It took about 3 weeks for them to contact me but it was basically a job offer. I went in for a 5 min interview and then sat back for a DOT physical and background to be completed. The manager was very professional and friendly.

Negotiation Details – They offered me an expectable hourly rate and all the OT I was willing to work. I took it.

Body Exterior Engineer Interview

Body Exterior Engineer
Allen Park, MI

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Roush Industries.

Interview Details – There was a very casual conversation by phone that seemed to be a screening for a more challenging on-site interview. When I arrived for the face-to-face interview, I was told that the manager had already made his decision. The on-site interview was more of a sales pitch, demonstrating the many areas of the company and advantages of working for them.

Interview Question – Questions were not aggressive nor were they very technical. I was asked several questions about my work history and the reasons why I made some movements in my career.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was handled by phone and documented via email. The engineering manager and HR representatives were the only contacts who participated.

Powertrain Engineer Interview

Powertrain Engineer
Allen Park, MI

I applied through other source and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Roush Industries in March 2009.

Interview Details – Found out about the job through a career fair at a Mid-Michigan based state university.

Interview was pretty low-stress; three different interviews with different engineering team leaders, some one-on-one, some two-or-three on one.
Boilerplate questions, talk about challenges, your weaknesses, your experience.

Got job offer with disappointingly low salary approximately a week later.

Interview Question – "Why aren't you willing to work here for (insert small amount of money here) salary?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Got job offer with disappointingly low salary. Told them "thanks, but no thanks"
They called back the following week with the same offer, gave same response.
This went on for approximately a month before they made a minor upward salary concession and I accepted

Know your worth; stand your ground.

Controls Engineer Interview

Controls Engineer
Livonia, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Roush Industries.

Interview Details – Found the position on the internet. I applied for it and had a phone interview. It was relatively straight forward. They told me about the position, and asked me about the work I had done, and they (the hiring managers, both engineers) seem fairly impressed. A day later, they told me I didn't get it. But then about a month later, they called me again, and asked me to drive 3 hrs for the on site interview at their regional facility. But once I reached there, they seemed to have forgotten they had an interview scheduled and the manager came in about half an hour late. They asked me some irrelevant questions and hem and hawed about whether I would be a good fit. And in a matter of 20 mins, the interview was done because they has "another meeting", which I think was an excuse to end the interview. I think in their mind they decided they didn't want me. I felt if they wanted they could have asked me some of the questions on the phone instead of having me drive 3 hours and spend all that money on gas and dry cleaning my suit. In my opinion, this was very rude on their end. Needless to say, they never bothered to tell me I didn't get the job.

Interview Question – They asked me questions on wiring schematics and figuring out the problem with the circuits, a PID control and example of PID in the automotive field   Answer Question
