    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at thyssenkrupp.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the most rude and conflicted recruiter from Thyssenkrupp Presta Indiana. I don't remember her even starting with "tell me about yourself" question. The first few questions sounded very rushed, as she made them into very brief yes/no question. She didn't let me elaborate on my answers, cut me, and responded in an angry tone. After successfully making me nervous, she told me that it's normal for a fresh grad to be nervous based on her 25 years experience of recruiting for Fortune 500 companies in Silicon Valley yada yada yada .. and that Thyssenkrupp is really trying to make interviews as comfortable as possible to attract qualified candidates. I felt bad the entire interview and only realized that she was the problem after talking to my friend about the interview. Geez.

    Interview Questions

    • She asked one hypothetical question:

      As a project engineer you are assigned a task to test a software that just recently got updated. After some testing you find that the software does not even run the main functionalities like the previous version. What are some approaches you take in solving that issue?   Answer Question
