    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

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BorgWarner (Flint, MI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was rather casual, consisting of job responsibilities, overview of resume. Subsequently describing and conversing on the groups and activities on my resume. Talked about education, interests, ranging from academic related, to personal. Once the interviewer acknowledged that he was a grad of the my university, combined with the fact that he was only around five or so years older than me, turned the interview around from a scripted reading off of a list of question, to a pretty casual conversation focusing on similar interests and hobbies.
