    Engineering Apprentice Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    SHL tests, SHL mechanical manual test, competency interview, group activity to build a world recognized monument out of paper and few other materials. The interview questions were many and the context was the usual context for such interviews. You need to build the SHL manual structure in time, which is very difficult. They grade your work even if incomplete so you need to make sure to leave it as complete as you can and not restart building it just before time expires.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at BMW Group UK in June 2015.

    Interview

    Was required to fill out an online form, but was told that it would not be read unless I passed an online maths test. Tests are pretty straight forward. Was then given a telephone interview with HR representative, who was clearly taking notes to pass them on to someone else to review. This probably means that you are at their mercy to accurately and fully note what you say.

    The phone interview was essentially a repetition of 'competency' questions asked on the original application form. Zero questions related to engineering understanding or knowledge/passion for BMW brand. Interviewer was unable to answer questions about the job.

    HR were uphelpful and unprofessional throughout, taking 9 weeks to arrange the assessment center after the phone interview. I was originally told this would take a week. I think this was more an issue with the hiring managers failing to review applications with any urgency, but HR completely failed to keep applicants informed throughout the process.

    Finally, the rejection email offered feedback upon request. The feedback I eventually received was painfully and embarrassingly generic- 'there were stronger candidates'.

    In summary, I would not recommend investing too much into the process, because BMW certainly don't.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BMW Group UK (San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí (Mexico)).

    Interview

    En general nada bien, me entrevistaron 5 personas, un director, tres gerentes y alguien de recursos humanos. Me solicitaron que hiciera una presentación para resolver un caso práctico de planeación de proyecto de una línea de producción, después de esto sólo se enfocaron las preguntas en porqué quería dejar mi empresa actual.
