    Interview

    I applied through my school's career center. There was a case study sent out before the interview - I completed it, discussed it during the interview, and answered several behavioral questions. They told me they would get back to me in a few weeks. After a month, I contacted the recruiter and she told me I would hear about advancing within two more weeks. I never heard back from them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Case Study. Had a week or so to prepare. Got a late twist to the study before interview. Had initial interview with Finance Manager and Finance Supervisor who was Gatekeeper. Went to a big interview with multiple candidates and another company case used for all departments. Very easy. Just discussion case. No right answer. Had 3 interviews with Finance Managers who asked questions about your case and asked about your resume. Background check, drug test, etc....

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Detroit, MI) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process included a case study that needed to be submitted prior to interview. All in all, the case study was a very minor part of the interview process and shouldn't be taken too seriously. More importantly you need to be able to make a good case for why you made the decisions you did. Selling yourself is also key, be prepared with examples of how you have excelled in difficult situations.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I started with a campus interview and then I was invited to the Talent Management Conference in Dearborn. The questions were related to the finance case distributed to me prior to the first interview, integrity, work in a team environment and why I want to work for them. Everyone was very easy to communicate to and made me very comfortable during the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Screening interview with a Finance supevisor and then initial interview with a supervisor & Director (2:1) to present a finance case on capital budgeting. The interviewers also asked several behavioral questions. I was later invited to Ford management Talent Conference, which was all paid for including food and hotel. In the conference, I went through a one hour behavioral interview (2:1), then a group interview, lunch and learn session and finally technical interview. In the group interview, 5-6 finance candidates presented a case and worked together to come up with one recommendation. In the technical interview, I had to present another case which was a further twist from the last case.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Detroit, MI) in December 2010.

    Interview

    This position was for the MBA summer financial analyst. A week before the interview i was given a capital budgeting case. I was to present my recommendations and assumptions to two finance managers who came to campus. They also asked a few behavioral questions. I spent considerable time preparing the case and they really liked my assumptions and recommendations. I was not invited to the second round but in the next round they brought together the four interviewees who made it to discuss the case in further detail given new information on the case to see how they interacted with others in real life setting, I believe I would of done better in this setting. I asked for feedback on why I did not make it to the next round. I was told that I did not give enough eye contact in the interview while presenting and not enough energy, what they call management presence. So in hindsight I would of been better off spending less time on my analysis on more time practising my presentation, because that was they wanted someone who could effectively communicate their point of view. They told me they would like to interview me next year for the full time position.
