project analyst automotive interview questions shared by candidates
These were the following questions they asked for the telephone interview: 1. Knowledge of Ford: What was your motivation to apply for the role and what research have you done into Ford in the automotive industry? 2. Working effectively with others: Give an example when you have persuaded someone to change their course of action from what they originally intended. (What have you done to persuade them and how you changed their mind). 3. Resilience: Tell me about a time when you had to persevere with a task despite a setback. 4. Delivering results and being customer focused: Give an example when you had responsibilities to deliver some work to a customer (make sure to give an example of what you did to meet the customer's requirements).
What are the challenges facing the automotive industry in the next 10 years? Which area of the automotive industry do you see potential for significant growth? Tell me about a time when you led a team to success. Tell me about a time when you dealt with a difficult team member and how you managed it as a team leader.
Mostly behavioural related questions and some technical as well. Since the people that interviewed me had no clue about the technical part it was a joke. The real interview is when they're trying to 'sell' you as a company asset to the customer (in my case an important car OEM), as long as they can allocate you in a project it should be a piece of cake.
