    Engineer II - Customer Applications Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marysville, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ZF Friedrichshafen (Marysville, MI) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Got an E-mail from HR, interview scheduled in their Marysville location in MI. The person who was supposed to greet meat their location didn't show up. The Hiring Manager who was supposed to conduct my interview missed it due to personal reasons and his team member who interviewed me was least interested and didn't even allow me to elaborate on my resume. The team member was too quick too judge me and the interview was too short (30 minutes). I was interviewed in no way related to the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you be able to explain if I asked you about forging? (The position was a Quality Customer Liaison and was in no way related to forging !!)   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ZF Friedrichshafen (Gray Court, SC).

    Interview

    I was scheduled for an onsite interview with the manager and the HR. But when I reached their office, the HR made me sit in the lobby and took my interview on phone without the hiring manager. When I asked her courteously if I should meet her then the HR said she forgot that it was a face to face interview and said she could not meet me as she had a meeting then. What a waste of time for everyone! The job got offered to someone who met the panel with the manager face to face and got a chance to explain about his qualifications to a technically competent panel. It is unfair to not give everyone an equal chance.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ZF Friedrichshafen (Marysville, MI) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Interview with a couple of employees that work in the department you are applying for. It was very comfortable and relaxed. They just ask you the usual questions and go over what you would supposedly be doing if you get the job. They have to interview 3 different people so it takes a while for them to let you know if you get the job or not.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ZF Friedrichshafen (Toledo, OH) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied during College Career Fair in-person at the ZF booth. After reviewing my resume, I was invited to attend ZF Career Day in Detroit, MI. It was basically a networking lunch event where I had the opportunity to talk to HRs and current employees, and also got to learn more about the company. After this networking event, I got an invite via email for a digital online (HireVue) one-way interview. This was my first HireVue interview ever. You get 30 seconds to prepare before each question and there are total 6 behavioral questions. You get only one attempt to speak while a video of yours is being recorded. You speak to your webcam. Being my first HireVue interview ever, I was very nervous and I completely bombed it. It was a great opportunity I missed. After one week, I got a NO from ZF via email.
