Product Development Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Allen Park, MI

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Allen Park, MI) in April 2017.

Interview

(For some jobs, the easiest way to apply is either through an employee referral or a staffing agency like Jacobs, Aerotek, ...etc)
* Applied online (Employee referral), got an email to do an assessment test (Numerical + Verbal) reasoning. (You need to practice, and be ready for this exam because it's timed exam, and if you failed you have to wait another year)
* Got an email to schedule a 30-mins phone screening, was pretty simple to confirm information and few behavioral questions. (why should we hire you?), (tell me about a time when you were troubleshooting something).
* Got another call for 60-90 mins on-site interview, and they offered a tour on campus. Went there and they were very nice people, they did a 30 mins presentation about the company, and then were taken to a 3:1 interview. Interviewers were very friendly and easy going. Most of the questions were behavioral questions (STAR format -- Tell me about a time.....)
Overall it was a very nice experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by a recruiter who for the most part gauged my interest in the job and the location in Dearborn. The first interview was over the phone and there was a minimal technical aspect. After about three weeks I was contacted by an HR representative to schedule an on-site interview. I flew to Detroit, ( all paid for by Ford) the interview was about 80 minuets long and three interviewers from the group hiring the candidate were present. About 60% of the interview was technical where they asked about my research at graduate school.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company in September 2015.

    Interview

    Weirdly enough, I was contacted by Ford somewhat out of the blue asking me to apply to their intern program. The version of my resume they had at the interview was over a year old, so I suspect they got the older version from a resume book. At any rate, I applied, completed an online aptitude/fit test to check for verbal, computational, and fit with the company, and after being informed that I passed, was contacted to schedule an on-campus interview. The interview was a mix of behavioral questions and questions about my resume and projects.
