    Human Resources Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Greensboro, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Volvo Trucks (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    I first applied through a career website. After almost a month, I received an email to do a phone screen. The phone screen went well. After three more weeks of waiting, I received a follow-up email about scheduling an on-site interview. I interviewed with three different people, each interview lasted an hour. I waited almost a month and a half before receiving an answer. I sent follow-up emails with no responses. I first found out the position was filled because one of my LinkedIn connections announced she got the job. Three days later, I received the "Dear John" email.

    It was a very informal conversation. I was called by the hiring manager directly and it mainly involved him describing what the position would entail. He asked me a few things about whether or not I had worked in a similar environment before.

    Interview

    Basic interview questions asked. Tell me about your self? What do you like to do? What do you want out of a Co-Op?, are you willing to live in Hagerstown, MD? etc. I had a phone interview. Then negotiated a starting date and was contacted by HR soon after it was rather straight forward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Volvo Trucks in May 2014.

    Interview

    I first received a call March 2014 to visit the Hagerstown, MD Powertrain Plant for an onsite interview. I scheduled the onsite interview two weeks later over spring break. The morning of the interview I received a call, and was told that it was cancelled and the position had been filled. Two months later I received a call again from the same recruiter asking me if I was still interested in the position and that I had to make an on-the-spot decision (I should've taken note that whoever he had hired the first time must not have thought much of the plant because I too was a little deceived of the job description). With no other job opportunities lined up I said sure. I started late May and ended early June.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Volvo Trucks (Hagerstown, MD).

    Interview

    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.
