    Majority great people, great compensations and benefits...takes certain kinds of people and mentality to make a start-up work. We had them...


    ...injection of some upper management people late in the game did it.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fisker Automotive in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I emailed a recruiter with my cover letter and resume, and a few weeks later was first called for a phone interview, and then scheduled for a panel interview. We were asked to arrive early to the panel interview to sign nondisclosure forms, and fill out an official application. They suggested getting their 15 minutes early, I felt like ~20 minutes early was better. It was very brief, just over half an hour, since they were on a tight schedule. They took me on a tour afterwards, and said they would get back to all the candidates within a week. A week later, I got a call asking for verbal confirmation that I wanted the position.

    Interview Questions
    • There were behavioral questions. I was asked about project organization, dealing with team issues, etc. I was also asked to recognize a part, and explain how I'd fix it. Later they asked me what my favorite two cars are, and why.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I have not tried negotiating yet, but I probably will, since base intern pay is only $9hour, and I have another offer for $17/hour. However--this is a great experience, since interns will be given duties that regular working engineers would have. As a student, I'd much rather have a great experience and shoddy pay than do paperwork for good pay.
