Co-Op Interview

Co-Op

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Toyota.

Interview Details – Hired on within 10 minutes of speaking to a recruiter. The on boarding system was rough in 2012, but has consistently gotten better. Toyota has been able to kaizen (continuously improve) this process and it has helped for the traveling engineers/interns that deal with hiring on 2x/yr.

Negotiation Details – No Negotiation for co-op salaries.

Co-Op Interview

Co-Op
West Lafayette, IN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Toyota in September 2013.

Interview Details – My interview process was maybe a bit different. I initially met the company at a school job fair. Gave them my resume and scheduled an interview the next day. I met with a group of three other Toyota employees. First they asked me to go over in detail every element of my resume. I elaborated on all my activities and verified my GPA.

Interview Question – The questions asked were mostly how would you deal with a stressful environment. I just thought back to my classes. I mentioned when I had multiple projects and deadlines to met and how I managed it.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I'm a chemical engineering and I thought I would have better opportunities elsewhere.

Co-Op Interview

Co-Op

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Toyota.

Interview Details – I was approached by them as a member of the society of women engineers the night before our career/co-op fair. The next day I spoke with a representitive and was invited to in interview the following day. It was a very fast process and they want a response from you quickly. HR can be a little slow getting back to you after you have been hired. I didn't know my department until about a month before I started and my roommate didn't know her location until about 8 weeks before we started.

Interview Question – Name a time you had to work with someone who had different ideas/ plans then you. What happened?
If you designed something that was put into production and got a call that it didn't work what would you do.
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Pay is decided by how long you have been in school but a housing stipend was included. There was an opportunity to request what plant to work at but because it was my first co-op I let them place me where they needed me.
