WABCO Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Administrative Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at WABCO in January 2014.
Interview Details – Interview process was very chaotic, unorganized, and unprofessional. I didn't hear back on an interview for over a month after submittal of my resume. The company then insisted on a same day interview as the first phone call request. The company then cancelled and changed the interview time after I attempted to accommodate a last minute interview. This diminished my interest some in the company. I did not feel this is not a respectful way to treat a prospective employee. I tried to overlook it and interviewed anyway. The hiring manager actually said bad things about the previous employees that held the position I was interviewing for. I feel it is very unprofessional to speak badly of former employees or managers in the interview process. Beware of Charleston location! There are red flags everywhere!
Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult. All were "common" interview questions (tell me about yourself, where do you see yourself in 5 years, strengths, weaknesses, etc) Answer Question

Very understanding and patient Proj Manager will ask you the general/personal question plus some technical ( nothing hard - Basic c++ and oops concepts).
