    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Continental (Fort Mill, SC (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I was called by HR, just asking when I could come one site. They were planning a full day of interviews and wanted to gather all candidates. No official phone interview occurred. When I got there I found out it was a group style interview with individual and group activities. It was very odd to interview along side other candidates for the same role. Someone in HR probably got a promotion over this style. Overall there were no technical questions. None about previous work just the typical HR style "describe a difficult team member type"

    Overall there were a lot of red flags, the rushed interview made it seem like they just wanted a warm body, the lack of any technical questions made it appear more sales. And the HR style group interview was very off putting, everyone is trying to be the leader.

    Interview

    the hiring process seemed to take a long time. I can only imagine that many candidates were being interviewed which led to this result. I did get hired so I suppose it paid off.

    Interview Questions

    • Where I see myself in 5-10 years. It is a generic question, and one that can never be answered truthfully. Industry as a whole is difficult to predict with all the rapid advances in technology. So I gave the yearbook answer and left it at that.   Answer Question

    Interview

    There was a technical interview with 2 head of departments followed by an HR interview with a senior HR executive. The technical interview was conducted in a very friendly manner. Where I failed to answer, they would help etc. The questions were easy. Simple questions about C, C++, UML, OOAD and Java.
    The HR interview was like a grilling session. Mostly questions about how to manage in the international situation of the workplace, people from all around the world and how to fit in. How to deal such a situation and so on. Asked in a very hostile manner.

    • Questions on overloading, class diagrams for a automotive cluster.   Answer Question
