I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. in December 2012.

Interview Details – I was already a previous intern for Honda in the EGA department, near the end of my term HR asked me about my desired placement for another term. Therefore, I was scheduled to interview for an Industrial Engineer position with HMA and had one 1:1 interview with the manager over the department. He mainly asked me questions about my recent experience, and what I expect to gain in this upcoming experience. He was very kind and explained the job position in great detail as well as recommending a book to read to further understand the processes they do!

Paint Intern Interview

Paint Intern
East Liberty, OH

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. in March 2012.

Interview Details – I had interned at Honda of America, Mfg. before as a Safety Engineer, so I was brought back a year later for a summer internship. I had not heard about the position until HR sent me an email asking if I would be interested in working with them again. I guess this shows that Honda does care about keeping in touch with its employees (or at least the interns).

I had to wait for almost a week before the interview was scheduled. That interview lasted for nearly two hours; the first half consisted of a series of typical behavioral questions and the second half included a tour of the plant and some introductions to a few key supervisors/coworkers for the internship.

A week and a half later, I emailed HR to ask for feedback and they got back to me with news that I have been selected for the position but they still needed to finalize things before it was official. Three business days later, I got that email.

This was a different and more in-depth interview than my previous Honda internship where I stayed within the interview room and didn't go into the factory. This could be because I had undergone the company's safety training during my first internship. Also, questions for my second internship were actually created by the interviewer than by a specially-formatted sheet. I suppose the process might be different for every department.

Interview Question – This one was from that first internship at Honda (Safety Engineer), not my second one. It was: What was one non-peer that you look up to and why do you respect him/her?   View Answer
