    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Volvo (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had this interview with another person who was a restaurant manager. And the interviewer simply introduced the information about their company. The career future was introduced in detail too. The conference room made me nervous at first but I soon calm down. And I answered several question like which degree I got and when I planned to graduate. It last for about one hour.

    Interview

    I applied the internship program online. The hiring manager contacted me back about one month later and asked if i was still interested in the position. The interview was scheduled the next day. The interview process was easy though. I met with the hiring manager and the managing director of the department I applied for. They asked me to talk about myself and raised questions based on my resume. I got offer a few days later.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Volvo.

    Interview

    Was contacted by the recruiter to schedule the interview. On the day of the interview, the recruiter called asking to reschedule because one of the hiring managers had a meeting. Never got in touch to reschedule; I then sent a follow-up email. He replied back that he is working with the hiring team to find a day to reschedule. The next day I got an email that I am no longer in consideration. Worst company I have ever scheduled an interview with. Complete lack of professionalism.
