    Junior Manager Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Senior Research Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    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 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.
