    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BorgWarner.

    fast and straighforward. I was interviewed by the HR rep, the hiring manager, and an employee. The interview was on a Friday, and I got an offer on Monday. It was pretty smooth, and not all that stressful.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ithaca, NY

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at BorgWarner (Ithaca, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    In short- I am led to believe that this company "ghosts." And that is a terrible thing to do.

    The HR rep that contacted me about my scheduled interview gave me a date but named the wrong day, following up after the confusion I learned that she went away on vacation. This was a disaster. After panicking and trying reaching someone else I was able to eventually go to the interview. I felt that I interviewed well, they told me I would hear back in a week or two. I haven't heard back by email or phone, and I reached out to three seperate HR reps via email following up. It's been 3 weeks now. With that being said, I believe this company ghosts, and that is terrible.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Borg Warner earlier this year for an engineering co - op. I had a phone interview with HR and two engineers at the same time. They clearly had my resume in front of them and asked me questions directly related to projects/experiences described on my resume. None of the questions were very explicitly technical, more about how I resolved problems, how I led people, how I handled tough work schedules etc. However, one of the engineers did ask me to expand on technical details of my project, but nothing too specific or difficult.

    This was my only interview, two days after which I received a co op offer.

    ECU Validation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Auburn Hills, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at BorgWarner (Auburn Hills, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    This was my first full time job interview and yet went well. I had 30 minutes with each person interviewing me. It was the guy that would be my boss, an HR guy and a technical lead. They were all really nice and asked me basic interview questions and made sure I'd be prepared for the position. Then they asked if I had any questions. They didn't ask any tough technical questions and their reason was that they understand I will be coming in with little experience and they figured it would be a waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • What is an example of a time that good communication ended in a good result (or something like that).   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This is my first full time job and in the interview they asked what I would expect as pay, I didn't really know what to say but I did a little bit of research before I went there just in case and I think that is why they offered me my minimum rather than countering lower.
