    Former Intern - Administrative, Operations in Gray Court, SC

    I worked at ZF Group NAO as an intern (less than a year)


    Loved the people I worked with, and loved the business itself. Fast paced environment, felt like I was being challenged.


    It felt like a lot of the supervisors were only interested in pointing fingers and not taking responsibility for themselves or their mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better company vision for all level of employees.

    Negative Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ZF Group NAO in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 interviews, each with a different manager. No HR representatives were at the interview - it was 1-on-1. The managers generally asked pretty detailed technical questions to gauge the suitability of the interviewee.

    Interview Questions
    • General conceptual physics of suspension systems. Had me draw a strut, as well as bending moment diagrams and other things. Also had to illustrate the concepts of how a shock absorber works, with drawn pictures.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    About a week of negotiation on the phone with the recruiter. Salary was reasonably good, but very little room to negotiate with vacation days.
    Accepted Offer
