    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Farmington Hills, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC (Farmington Hills, MI) in April 2018.

    Interview

    There were three steps to my interview process. The first was a phone call asking standard questions with HR. The second was a meeting with my hiring manager and another specialist, asking questions mainly from my resume and experience. The third was an in person interview which consisted of about five technical questions including a hand written coding problem on the whiteboard. The overall hiring process took about a month.
    The technical questions were fairly straightforward and open ended. It's difficult to get them wrong, it's more about how the questions are approached and how natural the response is.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC.

    Interview

    1) Career fair at university - spoke to a recruiter and was told that I would be recommended if I apply online
    2) Applied online; Phone interview was scheduled which lasted <30 minutes and was with a technical manager. Questions were all about my resume with a few technical (relating to resume) questions thrown in.
    3) Was invited for an onsite interview, about 45 minutes, with the same tech manager and the lead software engineer. Went over the resume again, in great detail, answered semi-technical questions relating to previous experience/classes and had a nice chat about the field into which I was applying.

    Received offer soon after. Overall process took 2 weeks. Accepted Offer.

    In summary, very very smooth processes with nice people.

    I found the opening position on a career services website my schools offers.

I also asked what are the next steps I should take. They called be a week or two after asked for a sit-down interview. I was interviewed the first time in November. They asked me questions regarding my skills/experiences. Then they told me the tasks I would be doing if I was hired and asked me what skills I have to prove that I'm a good candidate for the tasks. Then they asked me programming questions and what I am (or not) able to do.

After the two months, I emailed the interviewer again asking for the status of the position. The day after I sent the email, they contacted me asked for a second interview.
