    Algorithm Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southfield, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lowell, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Autoliv (Lowell, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    You are directed towards a room that has no people in it. Just some chairs and a phone. I arrived 10 minutes early for the interview, called the secretary and waited 10 minutes. I then called an additional 5 times and waited 40 minutes for her to finally come out to begin the interview. I met with the director, some engineers and another manager. The interview went generally well I thought and I later confirmed with the recruiter, that they also enjoyed the interview. But it turned out to be a phishing trip. It's been almost 2 months now since that interview. They still have not hired for that position and repeatedly tell my recruiter that they haven't made a decision yet.

    Interview Questions

    • Watch out for that HR/secretary. Although she was apologetic for leaving me stranded in the waiting room, I suspect it was part of the interview. Just after I was rescued from exile, she put me in a room and started filling out some sort of procedural paperwork. Even after we had exchanged pleasantries in the waiting room and we were using each others names..she asked me what my name was. I repeated it. 5 times she asked me to repeat my name. My name is a simple English name..never have I had so much trouble conveying it to someone. I suspect she was deliberately trying to stress me out to figure out how I respond to obstinate people??? <shrug> I am operating on the theory that nobody is actually that dumb.   1 Answer
    • I was also asked a lot about my hands-on activities as a prior lead and/or manager. In todays market you have to straddle the line a bit between developer and manager. You have to be part architect, arrange and referee code reviews, know about regulated markets, etc..   1 Answer
    • A lot of questions about how you solved workflow issues. This is a growing company operating in a regulated market space. They are experiencing a lot of fast-growth and communication issues as they transition from start-up to large company. If you've been leading/managing for any number of years you should have good experience in transitional companies like this.   1 Answer
