I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ZF Sachs Automotive of America in May 2012.
Interview Details – I was cold-called by a ZF recruiter who found my resume on Monster. He gave a brief overview of the company and job description, and we skimmed over the relevant skills and experience from my resume. We scheduled an interview, which was re-scheduled due to a last-minute urgent meeting involving the interviewing manager. It was essentially a one-on-one interview; however there was an HR rep in the room, but she didn't ask any questions. The manager did not ask many questions, and even when he did, I could hardly get a word in edge-wise. If I asked him to clarify one of his few questions, it often led to a tangent that never made it back to the original idea. I asked a myriad of questions about the atmosphere, work team, resources, processes, etc. No standard interview questionnaire either. I received a voice mail from the recruiter about a week later to inform me that I did not get the job, citing the interviewer's difficulty to get answers out of me. Phone calls to the recruiter to clarify this debatable statement were not returned.
