    Planner Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ZF TRW (Lebanon, TN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received call from corporate recruiter to schedule interview. Only gave me choice of one day of week. I had a ton going on that day, but wanted the job, so took several hours out of my schedule to interview. Was told I would be escorted from gaurdshack to building and interview location, but had to find my own way. Interviewed well with 3 personnel. No hard questions, and reallty, wish they would have asked more. Also met with HR manager who talked about company for over 30 minutes. No questions were asked about my resume. Was at the interview for an hour and a half. I followed up twice with the company recruiter, but no response back. I feel like they already had their candidate, and this was a huge waste of my time and energy. Interview prep and groom time = 3 hours, drive time = 1, interview time = 1.5 hours. All of this and not even the a courteous response from my followup emails. I will probably receive a generic letter in a month or so stating they chose another candidate. What ever happened to common decency and respect? Seems to be a new trend with HR and recruiters. Just avoid the candidates that were not chosen...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ZF TRW in June 2016.

    Interview

    Standard interview process. Four people interviewed me, each with half an hour. Basically they first introduce the company and the job requirements and then they will let you help them go through your resume, give a short introduce of yourself, and go over your work or project experience. The last few minutes were for you to ask them questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ZF TRW (Novi, MI) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview. I received a voicemail from a recruiter/HR Generalist. I called them back several times over the course of almost 3 weeks before I was able to speak to someone. The phone screen felt very rehearsed as if the recruiter was reading a list of standard questions. Afterwards, the recruiter was supposed to send me additional information via email and let me know if the hiring manager wanted to interview me in person but I never heard another word. The recruiter did say there were many applicants for this position but closing the loop would have been nice since I took time out of my schedule for an interview.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ZF TRW (Livonia, MI) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online for 'Braking Controls Engineer' position and got an invite for a phone interview for 'Software Engineer' position. I still decided to continue and accepted this invite. This was the first round of interview. Had to call the interviewer (current employee) at Livonia, MI, before and schedule the phone interview time and date. On the day of scheduled phone interview, spoke to only one person over phone (same employee). He was very rude from the beginning and casually made fun of small mistakes I made; not professional. Entirely technical which I answered all well. At the end of this interview, I asked him how his experience working at ZF TRW has been till today and his answer gave me an expression that he was not happy and satisfied with his work at ZF TRW, Livonia, MI. He did mention that there are conflicts going on within the company. This made me wonder how bad the work culture would be, and I decided to quit. After interview, I wrote an email to him that I would no longer like to continue interviewing ZF TRW (his department). His unprofessional behavior still boils my blood today when I think about this, and will never consider working for an employer where employees are not satisfied and unprofessional.
