    Marketing, Sales and Service Graduate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Rainham, South East England, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Standard online application, followed by telephone interview which went over my CV and asked questions relating to prior experience. Soon invited to the assessment centre which included a 1:1 interview, group exercise, individual role play exercise and a written exercise. They made you feel really comfortable throughout and very accommodating but ultimately i was ill-prepared and unmotivated.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dagenham, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Online assessments, phone interview followed with an assessment centre.

    Although it was for a HR role the assessment centre was designed as a business/it one.

    I have been successful so far and have reached the final assessment centre, which I will undertake soon. I have prepared for the online tests using jobtestprep.co.uk and the free practice test provided by SHL and assessmentday.co.uk.

    For the telephone interview, I prepared overviews of each relevant university project, using the STAR method. Review the current issues in your area. In my case, I focused on Ford and the automotive developments, for example their Ecoboost engine range which is an award winning engine.

    Interview Questions

    • These were the following questions they asked for the telephone interview:
      1. Knowledge of Ford: What was your motivation to apply for the role and what research have you done into Ford in the automotive industry?
      2. Working effectively with others: Give an example when you have persuaded someone to change their course of action from what they originally intended. (What have you done to persuade them and how you changed their mind).
      3. Resilience: Tell me about a time when you had to persevere with a task despite a setback.
      4. Delivering results and being customer focused: Give an example when you had responsibilities to deliver some work to a customer (make sure to give an example of what you did to meet the customer's requirements).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Chelmsford, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very formal interview process, attending made me no longer want to work at Ford. I felt the disconnect between senior and junior team members immediately. My personal opinion was that I would feel like a small cog in the huge machine

    Graduate Product Development Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Rainham, London, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The application process involved an online form with some detailed questions, a telephone interview, and an assessment day.

    The assessment day (mainly competency based, barely any technical content) consisted of an interview, a written exercise, a role-play exercise, and a group exercise. The role-play task was difficult, and the other tasks were more straightforward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company in May 2016.

    Disgraceful HR department.
