Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Toyota.

Interview

I was lucky to hear from my university about a co-op/internship opportunity at Toyota, so I jumped at the chance. Even though I was younger than what the employers expected (I was 19 and in undergrad), I got an interview nonetheless. During my first phone interview the interviewer asked me 3 very simple behavioral STARs questions: 1) Give me an example of a time you had to make a difficult decision, 2) Why do you want to work at Toyota, 3) What was one time you had a leadership role in something. It lasted a total of 15 minutes and then we scheduled a time for my second interview. The interviewer was very nice and calming, but it was a bit odd that she kept on forgetting my major and kept asking if I was getting my phD. My second phone interview was with 3 people of managerial positions. They were great and all introduced themselves and their work experiences. My entire interview consisted of me explaining every point of my resume in detail and it lasted a very long time-an hour and half. At the end I didn't get the position for that semester, but they did offer me an opportunity for the next semester. I didn't take it.

Interview Questions

  • They asked me very specific questions about my previous research experience during my second interview--such as specific measurement scales and the like.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Toyota (West Lafayette, IN) in September 2013.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    Reasons for Declining

    I'm a chemical engineering and I thought I would have better opportunities elsewhere.

    Co-Op Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Toyota.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    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.
