Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI (US)
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Continental (Auburn Hills, MI (US)) in August 2010.

Interview

I was contacted by an internal HR representative after a former colleague had forwarded my information to the employee. PLEASE NOTE: the company was Siemens at the time, Continental has since bought them out. During initial phone conversation, I was told that Siemens had the distinct technological advantage regarding the same product that I was working on in my current job. I decided to take the interview just to see if the engineers would divulge any information regarding this technical advantage. Sure enough, they spilled the beans and I walked away with a head full of proprietary information that they probably shouldn't have told me about. It was my decision to decline any further requests for interviews, but was shocked when I got a rather healthy offer letter the following day. Wow, that was quick. I took it to my current boos and said: "I have great information about our competitor, but it;s going to cost you 'this' much..."

Interview Questions

  • What is "Reynolds number" used for?   1 Answer
  • What's the most expensive thing you've ever taken apart and / or successfully put back together?   2 Answers

Reasons for Declining

I didn't think Siemens had the technological advantage and were going to win the project that I would have otherwise been hired on to champion. Sure enough, they didn't and it was current company (which I stay ed) that was awarded the business.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Continental (Taguig (Philippines)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Hiring process is so slow it's almost a month already and been asked to wait. HR is not accomodating and unprofessional. Attended several interviews - HR, panel, and interview with Project Manager. Questions were mostly case to case basis and experience background. For the panel interview, they will ask you to make an app for presentation. After the interviews, HR will ask you to answer their assessment exam (take home). They already ask me for some requirements but still will not say if you're being hired or not. What a waste of time and efforts.
