    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Denso Europe (Coventry, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    After initial application on their website I was short listed and invited to attend two different (SHL) tests online. After successfully passing those tests I was invited to book a competency based telephonic interview. After booking my interview I was provided the information regarding competencies which will be assessed as well as some interview tips. I was assessed for five competencies: Problem Solving, Quality orientation, Effective communication, teamwork & collaboration, commitment to development. In the beginning of the interview I was asked to confirm the position for which I have applied, my availability and some questions about the skills required for the role (1 question for each skill e.g. what have you done in C programming?). After that the interviewer asked "Why do you want to work for DENSO ?". Then the interviewer told me that she will now start the questions related to competencies. She then asked 3 questions from each competency, each question was related to the previous one. After completing her questions related to all competencies she allowed me to ask questions that I may have. I asked her 5-7 questions. Then it was over. It took 40 minutes approximately. It was a very formal interview conducted professionally.

    Software Engineer IGNITE Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bremen, Bremen (Germany)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Denso Europe (Bremen, Bremen (Germany)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Had online tests including the English Verbal test with statements and you needed to interpret the statements and answer questions based on that information. Then there was the Inductive reasoning test with patterns and that tested problem solving skills. For me the final stage was a phone Interview, I cleared the phone interview successfully but there was apparently a hidden stage for the business to review for the assessment centre and they rejected me in that stage.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Denso Europe in June 2014.

    Interview

    Waste of time. The content of the interview wasn't matching the job specification. After repeating twice my work experience and explained CV, the interviewer still didn't understand, I gave up. No feedback from the recruiter after the interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Denso Europe in March 2012.

    Interview

    I applied the role via email, then I was contacted 2 days later regarding the eligibility to work in the UK and told them that I have got the Tier 1 work visa. They were happy with that and arranged a 1:1 interview for the next week. Prior to the interview, they sent me four questions to answer and present during the interview. The questions were about logic gate circuits, start-stop systems and tdi engines.

    In the interview, there were 2 interviewers: Powertrain System Specialist and Engine Management System Specialist. Initially I was asked classical interview questions, why Denso? What you know about Denso? Then, the technical part started, there was a board in the room, I was asked dozens of questions about diesel and gasoline engines including detailed drawings of EGR and catalytic converters, p-v-t diagrams. One hour I was standing by the board and writing the diagrams and equations, it was really tough. Then I did the presentation of the four questions, they really like the way I answered the questions, when I struggled to explain some parts, they were very supportive and helped me out.

    One week later I got the rejection :) due to the fact that I did not have much hands-on experience.
