When applying for any job, doing your research to identify exactly what your prospective employer is looking for is very important.

If you are exploring the idea of a career with Stoneridge Software, our Talent Acquisition Team experts have some tips and tricks to help you prepare for your interview.

How to Prepare for Your Interview

When starting the interview process at Stoneridge Software, the first thing we tell people is to relax.

You have secured an interview, which means we’re impressed by your background and excited to learn more about you. Our team prides itself on our inclusive experience and thoughtful hiring process. We want to build a sense of belonging and celebrate what makes you, you, even before you’re a team member.

What to Expect During the Interview

Our interview process can vary depending on the position and team you are interviewing for. We use the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) model to meet our goal of ensuring we have the right people in the right roles on our team.

There are times when we find the right people before we have the right role for them. If we talk with you and are actively engaged in hiring you, we will look for the role that best suits you. Our Talent Acquisition team reviews all applicants with that philosophy in mind.

First Step: Meet Our Talent Acquisition Team

When we have the right role for you, the first interview you will have is with our Talent Acquisition Team. During this conversation, we seek to understand your career goals, previous experiences, and how our culture could grow with you at Stoneridge. In this meeting, we will also make sure you have a strong understanding of what makes Stoneridge unique before you meet with the rest of our team. We are also ready to answer any of your questions.

We want you to feel confident that you know where you are in our interview process. We will set expectations on when you’ll hear updates and what comes next in your first meeting.

Second Step: Meet Would-Be Members of Your Team

From there, you will have two or three more interviews with the team for the specific position or team you are interviewing for. These often include Leaders and senior or principal experts who exhibit excellence in the role already. In those meetings, you will have a chance to learn more about our team, role responsibilities, proven processes, career paths, and expectations.

In terms of questions, we believe your experiences and behaviors are the best indicator of how you would handle a similar situation here. We build a thoughtful list of questions that are behavioral and scenario-based to help us gain an understanding of how you might fit into your team. This helps us gain an understanding of your success throughout the evolution of your role from starting to potentially filling a leadership role within the company.

Be a Stoneridge Interview Master

As a team member at Stoneridge, we must provide you with the right tools for success. So why not start now? Our goal is not to trick or stump you in our interviews, but to help you display your best self honestly and effectively through our questions.

Our behavioral interview questions prompt you to share specific examples from your work or relevant experiences. These behaviors are clearly outlined in our job descriptions. For instance, consider this question:

"Tell me about a time when you had to adapt to a workplace change. What actions did you take, and what was the outcome?"

We structure these questions using the STAR Technique and recommend that you respond in the same format. Keep it simple and use this as a guide to staying concise and structured while ensuring you've covered all the relevant details.

Lastly, our core values at Stoneridge are the fabric of our company. If you are trying to find employment with Stoneridge think about why these values resonate with you in your professional and personal life and come prepared to discuss this in each interview you have.

What Happens After the Interview?

After your interviews are complete, we make decisions quickly. Your Talent Acquisition Specialist will provide you with updates and keep you informed on decisions.
