    Lead Hardware Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    In my experience, this company requires you to fill out a lot of paperwork, then jerks you around with scheduling interviews, ultimately deciding they didn't want me after all without giving a reason. I've applied twice, had to fill out an entire job application and solve 15 pages of very simple electrical problems, then hand scan all of them in before even being considered for an interview. Afterwards, interviews kept getting rescheduled last minute then nothing. Don't bother.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Autoliv (Southfield, MI) in May 2010.

    Interview

    30-min phone interview. Then a few rounds of mini group of interview. They asked question of previous job experience and some high level technical questions. Just don't bring a draft with you and read it out you shall be fine. Fairly informal and easy going.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Autoliv (Lowell, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR to schedule about the interview. HR was too slow, kept lot of emails and finally scheduled a interview. Doesn't said anything about the position, whether it was FPGA, C++, Design roles. She told she doesn't have anything information and said it was on SPICE simulations. on the day of interview, I got call to reschedule my interview to some other time as they are having lot of meetings. I lost a day at my work, the HR took 50mins time explaining all about the company. Study a lot about the company, their products. Then the person from the team came and took me to the cubicle. He started from basics to extreme electronics. It can be cracked if you are in your bachelors but when you are working towards special specialization then it will be difficult. The person is amazing but the HR is not great.

    Intern Interview

    Interview

    I got an email from my department about the position at Autoliv, sent the hiring manager my resume and cover letter, and was contacted a few weeks later for an interview. I had two engineers interview me. They had a list of general interview questions (nothing technical), such as, "Tell me a time when you've demonstrated good writing qualities". The interview eventually became casual after I started asking them questions about the company. At the end of the interview, they even gave me a tour of their facility!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Autoliv in May 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a position at the Auburn Hills location. The interview was completely unremarkable, but what really baffled me was when I attempted to follow up with HR, I was told by the receptionist that they don't take calls, or messages. I immediately removed myself from their pipeline, as I'm not interested in working for a company that doesn't care about me when they're supposed to be convincing me to pick them. Corporate HR is outdated and in no way prepared to support today's ever-changing workforce.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Autoliv (Southfield, MI) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A lead from AutoLiv, Southfield (MI) office called me and asked me about my background in automotive engineering. The he went on saying that I am the best fit for the job and I have almost got the job but have to clear a telephonic interview. I scheduled the call 2 days after that and it involved 5 or 6 other people from the same project. The interview went smoothly and there were all resume based questions. The interview was for about 45mins and I was asked to wait till they get back to me with the result.

    This happened on 5-May-2017 and I am writing this review on 7-July-2017, over 2 months are passed and I haven't received a single reply from any of the team members. I have the LinkedIn contact of the person who had contacted me. I sent him over 8 e-mails and over 5 messages on LinkedIn. He hasn't responded a word till now.

    It's one the WORST interview experience ever. It's highly UNETHICAL and UNPROFESSIONAL to not give a candidate any response about the interview even after reminding so many times.
