    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hagerstown, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Volvo Trucks.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview followed by three one on one face to face interviews. They were unstructured and I believe they knew they wanted tohire me before I had arrived. The face to face was just a formality. It was not very structured. More like a conversation than an interview.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Volvo Trucks in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call from HR for the Co-op after a month to check if i was still available and set up a phone interview. Got a call from the hiring manager on the scheduled time and lasted about 40 min. Did not ask much, was general questions based on what his requirements were. Discussed the resume and told me what he expects me to deliver during my co-op. No trick questions, just go through the Job description, prepare your resume and you will be fine.
