    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America.

    Interview

    They are quite welcoming and nice. They will begin by explaining more in detail what you will be doing in your position, then proceed to ask you questions. The questions were primarily behavioral with an exception to a couple that looked to be answered with more technical terms and language.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone call with a panel. They were keen on putting me down with all deep dive technical questions on skills not mentioned in my resume and that are irrelevant to the position. Makes me believe that there is truth in the reviews about company. I would have declined the offer even if they extended me one.

    Interview

    Interview process was in multiple stages. I received a C coding test which I submitted and got a follow up interview call. My possible senior was really impressed and scheduled a follow up FINAL interview with his BOSS.. On that particular day. The HR told me that they will have to shift the interview date. After I replied asking what day of the week they replied within one hour saying interview process was halted for that position although it seems to be still open in their job portal.
