    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company.

    Interview

    Meet recruiters at university career fair. Most of the recruiters were previous grads. It seems as if they were focusing on your confidence and how you hold yourself. They had an info session the same night. To apply for an internship position, you have to pass a basic knowledge test. About a week after the career fair, I was invited for a sit down interview. The process is still pending.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Met recruiter at an on campus career fair, talked to them and was signed up for an on campus interview later that week. Received a second round interview for which I traveled to Dearborn, MI. Morning of the interview gathered with other candidates for breakfast. Ford showed us a video of pro-Michigan propaganda and another of pro-Ford propaganda. Not very informational, just all the reasons why Michigan/Ford is the best place on the planet. Toured Ford facilities in Dearborn, Henry Ford's name was only mentioned oh, two or three hundred times on said tour. Interviewed in the afternoon with two sets of engineers.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company in July 2013.

    Interview

    The first round was phone interview. It was for half hour. Two interviewers asked questions taking turns. After initial introductions, and a generic 'tell me about yourself' starter the actual interview began. It consisted of a few behavioral and a couple of situation based questions. e.g. most innovative idea, conflict with coworker, team experience, customer situations etc.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Chennai (India)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I contacted the person I know working in ford and through them I approached the senior officials of the company. They spoke to me for a long time to know much about me. Finally after 2-3 meetings and after they gained confidence on me, a man from the engine dept. who is well experienced was asked to give his opinion upon me. After several meetings with him and practically proving my knowledge on the floor, he was convinced and that's how I got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • I am not too good at MS Excel tools. I wasted tested a lot in it. And technically, i was tested in advanced engine working concepts and ford's upcoming new products and particularly about the process of testing engines.   Answer Question
