    Easy Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at ZF Friedrichshafen.


    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.
