    Engineering Co Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maumee, OH

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dana Corporation (Maumee, OH) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview to work in the NVH Lab that lasted 10 minutes. He only asked 3 questions and gave a summary of the job. Got called back for an on-site interview. When I went in, the engineering manager didn't even interview me, he had the current co-op give me a tour of the facility and she introduced me to all of the employees as the new co-op starting the following semester. A month after the on-site "interview" I received an email saying they went with a different candidate. Very dissatisfied with the experience and surprised with the lack of communication.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dana Corporation (Maumee, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview for an hour. They got satisfied and called me for site interview. Everything was gone well. Suddenly, they asked for another phone interview. I have never heard someone asking for phone interview again after site interview. After the last phone interview they denied me. The reason: I am more of a team work guy but they are searching for individual contributor. I knew that my team work strength turned into greatest weakness due to Dana.

    Senior Nvh Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maumee, OH
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dana Corporation (Maumee, OH) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by recruiter working for Dana.

    30 minute phone interview with Chief Engineer (hiring manager) concentrating on experience and a description of the position.

    Three hour face to face interview broken into one hour blocks with two engineers and either HR manager or the Chief Engineer, followed by a 1 hour tour of the facility and lunch.

    Offer given, 105k/yr with 7k signing bonus initially, raised to 110k/yr with 10k signing bonus. I asked for more time to decide (two days before decision deadline) as I had two other interviews scheduled with travel arrangements and commitments made, however HR and/or hiring manager decided to rescind the offer and "go with an alternate candidate." The job was reposed online the following day.

    Overall impression is that the company unethical and does not value it's personnel. I'm glad that I was able to see the true nature of Dana and saved from making a mistake of relocating my family and working for this company.

    Interview Questions

    • Six behavioral questions asking for a description of a situation in my career and what the outcome of that situation was. Two open-ended technical questions:

      1. An OEM complains of a noise issue with a vehicle where if they change either the Dana drive shaft or the rear axle and the noise goes away. How would you diagnose this problem and give three possible root-causes of the noise.

      2. You perform an experimental modal analysis of a drive shaft and your colleage builds a finite element model of the same drive shaft. Your experimental results do not match the model results. How would you address the differences and what are the possible reasons for the mismatch of the results?
