    Body Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nissan Technical Center North America.

    Interview

    First was a phone interview with HR dept. They ask behavioral questions and your background, trying to match you with a good department. Technical interview with group is next, where they ask you about your experience. On the on-site interview, they ask very technical questions. Ask what you know about vehicle body. Some skills test and also they give you a part and ask where the parts would fail in fatigue and etc.

    Interview Questions

    • a part is provided. How would you add stiffness to this part without adding any mass?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Finance team in Franklin HQ approves the offer, so the HR actually doesn't have power to negotiate. This extra step delays any negotiation requests and ultimately applicants end up taking the offer due to the drawn out process.

    Exterior Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Farmington Hills, MI
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nissan Technical Center North America (Farmington Hills, MI) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I had applied for a test position in Arizona, and after a month I was told that job wasn't going to be screened for that position. I was referred to a design engineer position in Farmington Hills, MI. I had a phone screening from an HR associate for general position questions. I was then asked to interview with a panel of managers and engineers, that interview was about 1 hour long. I had another interview via skype to talk more about my experiences, no technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The the entire process from first screening to offer was 2 weeks long. There was no relocation assistance for my move (which would have been from Southern California to Southern Michigan, some 2,250 miles) and the salary was less than I was receiving at the time.

    Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nissan Technical Center North America (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The recruiter was prompt about communication (emails, phone calls). However, he seemed to have limited knowledge of the job-req, the work environment, or the team.

    The interview process was as expected. No difficult questions or harsh interviewers. Presentation of previous work plus some panel interviews. If you are moderately prepared, you'll do well. The important focus here was on communication. Makes sense, since they were trying probably to assess team fit since it was a small group.

    Once the process was over, it took them nearly five weeks to make an offer. Too much delay for a Silicon Valley setting, especially since they are trying to hire in a specialized occupation field.
