    Pros

    They help you learn and grow the skills you need to advance in your field. I was given a lot of leeway to pursue the jobs I wanted as well as give specific tasks to develop.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy that surrounds the company makes it difficult to get some things done in an efficient manner. There are only one way to do certain jobs when corporate gets involved and it isn't the most efficient at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people who are responsible for their departments do their jobs before getting higher management involved in areas where it will only slow a task down. Rather let the employees work it out and get the job done.

    Quality Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at ZF Friedrichshafen.

    Interview Details

    I got contacted randomly through a 3rd party and set up for an onsite interview. I met with two Quality guys I ended up working with who asked some behavioral questions and a few technical. This took about 20 minutes. All of it was pretty straightforward with a plant tour (the place is huge) after the interview. Just be relaxed and studied up on your resume. They're growing on a pretty big scale and need people. Also, the people there are great and will help you out if you have questions etc.

    Interview Questions
