    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Farmington Hills, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bosch (Farmington Hills, MI) in April 2018.

    Interview

    There were three steps to my interview process. The first was a phone call asking standard questions with HR. The second was a meeting with my hiring manager and another specialist, asking questions mainly from my resume and experience. The third was an in person interview which consisted of about five technical questions including a hand written coding problem on the whiteboard. The overall hiring process took about a month.
    The technical questions were fairly straightforward and open ended. It's difficult to get them wrong, it's more about how the questions are approached and how natural the response is.
