IT Analyst Interview

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dana Corporation.

Interview Details – Thorough and fair hiring process. Interview by phone, then interview with hiring panel, then interview with department head. Quick decision, heard that non winning candidates got both email and snail mail rejection, so think that is considerate and not a regular occurence in these times.

Purchasing Intern Interview

Purchasing Intern
Maumee, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dana Corporation in March 2012.

Interview Details – Did a short phone interview with a woman in HR. Made an appointment for an interview. The interview consisted of a group/panel of people who were from the department I would be working in. Not really any tough questions. Asked about skills and resume information. Interview only took 30-45 minutes. Company atmosphere seems calm and everyone was very friendly. They discuss how much the position would pay but said the internship could last anywhere from 3 months to 2 years.

Supply Chain Management Interview

Supply Chain Management
Toledo, OH

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Dana Corporation in January 2011.

Interview Details – I had 2 phone screens with 2 different people and a follow-up face to face. Very intensive discussion regarding my purchasing background and the current state of condition/challenges for supply chain within the company. Each screen lasted an hour. The face to face was another hour with one supply chain member and one internal customer. I was never quite sure what the expectations of the job was. The job description was vague enough and it was never clear to me what role they wanted the candidate to fill. I left the interview with a good feeling but uncertainty of what and who they really wanted in addtion to what they wanted to accomplish.
