    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bose.

    Interview

    Asked typical get to you know you type questions and what experience I had with certain softwares. Two rounds. First was very laid back at my college. Interviewed with two people both for 30 minutes. Next round was about two weeks later at their company site. A little more intimidating this time around with two 30 minute interviews with two people within different areas of finance each time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bose.

    Interview

    Recruiter moves pretty fast. Set up pretty quick but
    This is the most ridiculous interview I had by far with 4 years of experience

    You can tell the managers were interviewing for the first time, there was no attention to detail or me as the candidate. One of the was literally watching TV during the interview.

    Overall this felt very dry and disrespectful.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Bose (Boston, MA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    It takes 1 month for the interview process. Two phone interviews and on-site interview. The first phone interview is very general one, from HR to ask some research/work experience and skills. Then the second phone interview is with two engineers, focus on the techniques, about the skills, details about the project experience and introduction about the position. The on-site interview was pretty tough. It takes a whole day, from 10am -5pm, 1V1 technique interview with different engineers. Every engineer has 1 hour for the interview. And the lunch was in a conference room as well about many behavior questions. The negative part is the decision was made after 1 month. But I feel that it totally depend on the team.
