    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BYD (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    In person interview with VP and Chief Engineer. I simply described my relevant projects. Not very a technical interview. Only one technical question was asked of me. The in person interview was only about 30 minutes long. Knowing chinese is VERY necessary in getting this job. Being able to speak, read and write english and chinese is probably the best skill you can have in this company.
