    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Volvo.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Volvo in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    This was a difficult interview. Questions were disjointed, and were not focused. For a one time interview that made a final decision it was too general, did not really involve me. A decision was made and Not much was asked about my possible contribution to the position.

    Interview Questions
    • They really only talked about themselves. Very cold environment.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Volvo in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Wonderful, open communication and willing to teach. quite open to all types of questions and also some questions on how you handle diffcult situation. it's a one to one interview and basically ask you about the job history and the basic where you see yourself in 3 to 5 years time. Hard question will be why i would want to hire you and way you can contribute to the company.

    Reliability Engineer Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Volvo.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an online application. A couple of days later I recieved a phone call by the hiring manager and they asked me a few questions about what I have been studying in college and my interests in this field. I gave a very brief discription about my studies and only went into detail about the energy audit project I was currently doing. The manager said I will hear something from HR. I didn't recieve a phone call or an email for about 6 to 9 weeks. Then HR called me and asked if I was still going to start on the original start day given. They talked as though I had been hired this whole time; however, this was confussing to me. I had a background check and a hair examination drug test. I believe that took about 4 weeks for the result of the background check.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gothenburg (Sweden)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gothenburg (Sweden)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 10+ monthsinterviewed at Volvo.

    Interview Details

    Very, very slow process (10 months in my case). They were quite thorough in their research and we started off with an hour phone screen with a VP and a technical expert in the area. I passed that and was invited in for a fairly quick meeting. After that meeting, where I mostly listened, I had to take a personality test and an intelligence test. I had to then sit through a psychiatric type interview with someone hired by the company to help evaluate potential managers. After that, it was still a few weeks before I was formally offered the job. After some back and forth we came to agreement and I accepted.

    Interview Questions
    • The psychiatric interview was new ground for me. I have never undergone something like that...so, it wasn't one question in particular, but just getting through that was difficult I felt.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I gave them my opening figure and they came back with their final number, which was only a bit lower than mine...but they offered a car and some other perks that offset it.
