I applied online and the process took 8 months - interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America in April 2010.
Interview Details – Initially called to spend a half a day taking a computer assessment exam and to spend the second half of that day at a production simulation exercise where I had to pretend to put together steering wheel columns and dodge imaginary forklifts. I did well enough on that to where they called me for a face to face interview with two managers, which I passed. I was then scheduled for a medical exam and drug screening. After that, nothing for 8 months. I about gave up hope until they called me and told me they have a training class ready and asked if I could I start in two weeks.
Interview Question – Nothing was particularly difficult. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Starting salary was $14.50 an hour. Take it or leave it. You do, however, get raises pretty frequently. My current base salary is $19.40 an hour, plus I get overtime and an extra dollar an hour for when I work the overnight shift. We also get four bonuses a year.
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America in July 2013.
Interview Details – I applied via the website, uploading a resume and cover letter. About 2 weeks later, I was contacted by HR via e-mail, to schedule a technical phone interview. The phone interview lasted about an hour, asked about my vision for the intelligent and connected vehicle research. There were also questions on C++ programming, inheritance, virtual member functions, and destructors.
About a week later, HR called me to schedule an on-site interview. The on-site had me meeting with 5 or 6 people, including management and engineers. There were more questions about machine learning, my experience in school, and vision for research. There were also some questions on algorithms.
Unlike many tech interviews, they weren't trying to trip me up, trick me, or bark orders at me. I think some interviewers see it as a challenge to "break" the interviewee, which was not the case here.
