    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Continental (Chicago, IL) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I met some of the recruiters at the career fair, where they right away asked me technical questions. The following day, I received an email to set up a phone interview for the following week.
    They seem very passionate about their careers and organized. They asked mostly technical questions regarding embedded systems and past projects. Be sure to know basic C programming concepts and several microcontroller peripherals.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sumter, SC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Continental (Sumter, SC) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Most dysfunctional interview process ever seen or heard of anywhere. Normal phone screen interview when called in for onsite interview though that was where it got goofy. At midnight the night before the interview was given instructions to create a presentation on a problem. Then when shown up for the interview there were multiple people there interviewing for the same position and put together in a closed room. Then was asked to do scrap analysis pivot table on a old laptop using excel 2003. I left and never heard back or asked for feedback. The interviewers were rude, condescending and never given a chance to ask a single question. I was told to stay by others who worked there and wish I heeded the advice.

    Internship Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Continental in December 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online, and interviewed at Continental. I was supposed to be meeting with 2 people but found out that one of them decided not to show up on the day of the interview.
    Other person seemed nice although unprepared as he said he did not have time to look at my resume. Interview went well in general, with a lot of behavioral questions as well as my background. What strikes me most that towards the end of the interview, he said I was a strong candidate but there was another candidate who had a master's degree so he hasn't made his decision yet. Not professional!! It has been 2 weeks since the interview, so I think he chose that person

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Continental in October 2019.

    Interview

    Phone interview and then video interview before offer was made. The phone interview was with one person, and then the video interview was with two people. Found it odd that one of the people that interviewed me was not part of my team or HR, just a third party.

    Interview

    First interview was with a few team members online typing C code into an online compiler. They had me debug code that wasn't working and write code to solve a programming problem. Team members friendly and helpful. It was almost like a collaborative experience.

    Second interview was on-site and I came into and talked to maybe 5 - 6 team members include project managers. They mainly asked about my experience and how I would deal with different situations. Again, everyone was very friendly.
