    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Volvo Trucks (Macungie, PA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    had two different interviews, one where a computer asked questions and I submitted videos and a phone interview with a person. The video interview was somewhat awkward to do but they give you alot of tips and let you have a practice time. They give you time to both think about the question and record your answer. Overall the experience was average

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Greensboro, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Volvo Trucks (Greensboro, NC) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Volvo is very slow in responding to applications and setting up interviews. They are equally slow in the post-interview follow up. My experience was a 5 week time span from application to interview. Then another 3 weeks until hearing the hiring decision. Then there was a rush to fill out HR paperwork and drug screening to make the start date for the following week.

    Human Resources Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Greensboro, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Volvo Trucks (Greensboro, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was a consultant so my agency set up my interview. I meet with the immediate manager and they asked me basic questions about my resume and experience. They also went over what they did in that area. My interview was longer than usual due to talking about other topics. I wore heals and because the campus was large I suggest wearing flats, loafers, or a kitten heel if you are a female.
