    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Volvo Cars (Charleston, SC (US)).

    Interview

    Initial phone screening with recruiter, followed by another phone interview with managers and HR altogether, followed by an on-site interview with future boss and HR. During the phone interview, we basically went over my resume. A short and easy (easy if you are experienced) technical question or two were asked. During the on-site interview, the questions were mostly behavioral questions with the up-front question being, "we currently have xxx type of project on-going. How can you apply your experience and knowledge to help us deliver it successfully?" Compared to the other company's on-site interviews where I had to do back-to-back group/panel interviews for 4 - 5 hours in a row with tough technical questions continuously thrown at me, this interview with Volvo was easy and straightforward.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Volvo Cars (Charleston, SC (US)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    On-line job application, recruiter discussion, telephone interview with hiring manager, on-site interview with two managers and two HR representatives. Extremely long and frustrating process. Constant follow up with recruiter on status. Applied for a few roles and the process was similar, and I know of a few other people who had the same experience. Lack of consideration for candidates and leave them hanging for long periods of time after interviews. Given tips to be energetic in interviews; however interviewers were very quiet and did not ask a lot of questions. Felt like it was just a check the box interview when another candidate was already in mind.

    Interview Questions

    • They did not ask any serious or difficult questions in interview. I was only asked about 4 questions total in an interview lasting 1 1/2 hours. HR person asked a few ?s.   1 Answer

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Volvo Cars (Gothenburg (Sweden)).

    Interview

    I applied online and it took around 3 weeks to the final process of the interview. I did two interviews with the recruiter and then he invited me to do some tests, e.g personality test and logical test. I would say it took a long time to do those tests. After that, I was going to the last step of the interview with the manager and one team member. It's around one and half hour interview. They mainly asked some questions related to what I did in my previous role and some questions about personality. They even talked with my reference after the final interview. So it made me feel like they have a big interest in me. But they never get back to me with notification. I expected to have a notification even they are not going to proceed with me.
