    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC.

    Interview

    I first applied online for the position. After passing their qualifier questions, I received an email scheduling a phone interview. After passing the phone interview I was given a case study and I believe about a week to work on it. Once I sent it back in for review it took several weeks to be reviewed and for me to hear back from them. After receiving word I passed I was tasked with creating a slideshow to explain my logic applied to the case study and was invited in for an all day interview. The all day interview started first with presenting my case study to a member of the finance department and HR. After the other candidates and myself had completed our presentations we were brought back to a room where we were given a group problem to solve in 20 minutes. After this we were taken to lunch and given a tour of the building. After lunch 2 of the 4 of us were sent home. Myself and the other gentleman that were asked to stay met with a senior level person of the finance department for a final interview. The interview process started at 8:30 and went until around 3:00 PM. I received an email indicating an offer would be made by 3:00PM the following day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC (Palo Alto, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It is very important to have you refer to this company. If you are not referred, it is almost impossible to get an interview. My first interview was a general interview with not too many specific technical question. The second phone interview was a coding one. Then they asked me for an on site interview which was too long and took about 8 hours.
    During the on-site interview, I presented my work for the first two hours. Then we went for a lunch. After that there was an HR interview. Then technical interviews started. The first one was about pure programming, and the second one was about roboctis problems.

    Interview Questions

    • In HR, they asked if I am given one million dollar how would I start a new project and spend that money to be successful. In C++ question, they asked some questions about iterators, quick sort, some linux functions. In robotics part, they asked about EKF. Next one was how do you find a distance between two points where position is defined as (x, y, theta). The last question was about occupancy graphs.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC.

    Interview

    I was aggressively pursued after meeting their representatives at a career fair. First interview went fine and was invited to interview at HQ. They make you submit a fairly extensive case study - both excel and ppt. The final round consists of 2 separate interviews with HR, your case presentation to a group of finance managers, and a group exercise. The group exercise was pretty silly and not what I would have expected given my preparations for MBA case interviews. During my case presentation, I was extensively complimented on my analysis. There were discussions about the assumptions I made but overall it was a win. At this point, I am thinking I have this job locked up. During the following interview, in a discussion about any potential issues with the demands of the job, I accidentally (and regrettably) mentioned some personal information - nothing scandalous, just normal stuff - that I should have kept to myself. After this, the tone of the interview became noticeably less cordial. After a quick tour, I was promptly told that I would not be hired and was escorted to a waiting taxi. I received feedback indicating that my case study wasn't good enough. My case study was great. I wasn't even sure afterwards, so I had it checked by two accounting professors at my school. This is probably the answer they give to everyone when they don't have an actual reason to deny you the job besides their personal feelings. It was clearly HR that made the final decision without much input from the actual finance professionals. HR has a lot of power here and it's a popularity contest, not a skills evaluation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    I applied via internal referral + online. The first phone interview was simple, the team wanted to know more about me, my PhD research and my background in general. The second phone interview was more technical, and I was asked to solve math/algebra problems over the phone. I was then invited to Palo Alto for a in-person interview. I gave a 1hr presentation followed by some more technical questions and HR interview. No 1-to-1 meeting, so I did not have the chance to ask different persons about their jobs, what they do/like etc. The only chance was briefly at lunch. The HR interview was long and full of behavioral questions. The overall process took a couple of months (roughly 2+ weeks between each step)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Bosch LLC (Farmington Hills, MI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Hearing back on the application took a long time but the hiring process itself was a bit better. I still believe that for an internship the process is too long. Once you get contacted about the position and you get interview the processes goes much quicker after that. Overall the staff is great and it is really not their fault for the process taking so long it is just the way that it is structured
