    Materials Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockford, IL (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Magna International (Rockford, IL (US)) in October-2017.

    Interview

    This was the most unprofessional interview I've ever had! The interviewer could not hold a conversation. She asked very few questions and the questions she did ask were of little relevance to the job. More than once she would rudely interrupt me mid sentence. Her son called her not once, but twice during the interview and she answered both times!!!! The second time her son called, she put her son on speaker phone and continued to conduct the interview and talked to her son at the same time. I should have just got up and walked out the door, but I stayed and finished the interview all while this was happening.

    The person interviewing me would have been my manager. No amount of money would be enough for me to work for such a person. She was rude and inconsiderate which also gives Magna a bad name. I think higher up management at the Belvidere plant really needs to look into this. I consider myself highly qualified for this position, but this experience turned me off not just for this position, but from the company in whole.

    Warranty Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Holly, MI (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Magna International (Holly, MI (US)) in August-2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by head hunter; 2 weeks later arranged in-person interview. I was interviewed by an individual identified by the head-hunter as the "hiring manager", however this individual was apparently a "new" manager and clearly had a difficult time conducting a "flowing" interview; I was doubtful this person was truly the "hiring manager". Fortunately, a counter-part employee joined the interview half way through, and asked a few more legitimate questions pertaining to the position. Overall it was very relaxed, (almost too relaxed) and borderline unprofessional.

    Packaging Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Troy, MI (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Magna International (Troy, MI (US)) in August-2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process was laid back, I was mostly told exactly what I would be doing on the job. Packaging is a smaller field so I doubt all Intern position interviews were like this.

    Anonymous Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carrollton, GA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Magna International (Carrollton, GA (US)) in June-2017.

    Interview

    I am going to leave out which department I interviewed for but it was not a plant floor position. It was in the front offices. I had 2 phone interviews that were within 7 days of each other, so pretty fast. It took 2 weeks before the manager got in touch with me and scheduled my first onsite. I was then called back for a second onsite (my 4th interview) 2 weeks after my first onsite. My second onsite was with the plant GM and AGM. It has now been 3 weeks since that interview and I have not heard from anyone. I have reached out to the manager twice and no one has responded. Very disappointed in the fact that no one can even say if I am still in the running or not. It would have been nice to at least get a rejection letter since this is a higher position.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked situational questions in the second onsite interview.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Stanard interview, generic questions. I lived nearby so there wasn't a phone interview and there were two in-person interviews. If you do an online search for interview questions and you can answer those, you should do fine. At least at the subsidiary I interviewed at. They called me the day after the second interview with an offer.

    Executive Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Hudson, MI (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Magna International (New Hudson, MI (US)) in October-2016.

    Interview

    Was questioned thoroughly about my capabilities, after the interview they offered me a better position better suited to my experience. They seem to want to keep good talent and use them in areas that are good. This would be at this particular division that I experienced this which is a Cosma Body Assembly which has a different atmosphere than a more corporate division.
