    Interview

    I attend an onsite interview for the Ford College Graduate rotational program. The process was relatively quick an painless. A case study was sent out for you to have prepared in advance. You discuss the case with other candidates and justify your decisions. The actual interview was with two people and they gave standard behavioral questions.

The interview started with, "So... Tell me about yourself?" Then he asked a few questions about the information on my resume. The next day, I accepted the job offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company in August 2014.

    Interview

    After applying on the company website, I was contacted by a recruiter whom I had a short phone interview with consisting of very basic questions (some experience questions, work eligibility, willingness to relocate). After about a week I was contacted directly by Ford and asked to come on site to the Ford talent center. At the talent center they will give a short talk about Ford and show some videos before your interview. I had a panel of 3 people, which appeared to be the standard. They took turns asking a total of 11 questions (5 "engineering" and 6 behavioral). I was at Ford on a Friday and received an offer the following Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no questions that stood out as truly difficult. It didn't appear they were trying to stump you, but rather get to know you. On the other hand, many of the questions had multiple parts (which are read at once), so don't be afraid to ask them to repeat a part of the question. I did it multiple times. My best advice would be to think of several projects you have worked on in the past and know them in and out. Be prepared to answer questions about issues you had during design (time, flaws, restrictions, process), but nothing really technical. Also think of the interactions you had with team members and how you handled the more difficult situations.

      Come to think of it, one difficult question was: Describe a time that I disagreed with a superior and explain how I handled it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer was above my expectations and there was no negotiation.
