    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Livonia, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ZF TRW (Livonia, MI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through university, that was an internship opening. It took less than 2 weeks for me to get the phone screen interview with one engineer and his supervisor. The atmosphere was super friendly and they seemed not have too much questions prepared beforehand, just followed your line and asked few not much technical questions according to your personal projects or work 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.

    • Nothing unexpected. Every question was straight forward.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was a lateral move within the company and therefore specific guidelines to follow regarding compensation which set limits to salary and vacation. The initial offer was genuinely the best offer possible.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at ZF TRW (Livonia, MI).

    Interview

    The interview was arranged with a recruiter. The initial phone screen was held, and they had a management issue, so the interview was repeated 5 months later. After the phone screen I was brought in for an in person interview.
    The interview was very professional and covered my experiences, particularly dealing with customers from different cultures.

    Interview Questions

    • There really were not a lot of surprises and they seemed less interested in technical experience as experience dealing with customers, particularly demanding ones. There were a number of scenarios presented and how would you react situations.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Initially, they represented they would come up with an offer in the minimal acceptable range. When the offer arrived, it was FAR below this range to the point I just couldn't justify leaving my current job for this one.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ZF TRW (Livonia, MI) in August 2011.

    Interview

    The first step in TRW's hiring process is to get recognized by their human resources. Once this happens, you will usually get a call within a few days asking you to set up a one on one interview with managers, chief engineering, program managers, directors, etc. Once this occurs, internally, human resources posts your interview date, and management then sign up for slots to talk with you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ZF TRW (Livonia, MI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I had to walk up 6 flights of stairs to the hiring managers office, was out of breath before I could tell the interviewer anything about myself. The hiring mgr gave me a small run down of the position. I was told there would be travel, although the description did not show this. It sounded like a good move career wise, however I don't think I would fit the culture.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ZF TRW (Livonia, MI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Met with hiring manager, walked up six flights of stairs versus using the elevator, no structure to interview at all, poor interviewer! She seemed to either unaware or unconcerned of interviewing protocol. Very dry, no real input to the job requirement or expectations. Violator of the equal employment act.
