    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toledo, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toledo, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toledo, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toledo, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dana Corporation in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was called two days after I applied to schedule a phone interview, and spoke to an agency recruiter in CA. About two weeks after the phone interview, someone in TX contacted me to schedule an onsite interview in OH. He gave me a few time options and slotted me in. When I arrived for my interview, there was no one at the front desk, and the phone list did not include the names of the people I was scheduled to meet with. Luckily, there was another person waiting in the lobby that knew the people I was supposed to meet with and said they will be right out.

    The interview consisted of two panel interviews (2 people per panel). The first asked basic interview questions (3 strengths, 3 areas of improvement, Microsoft Office experience, Career Highlight, Project that went astray, etc.), the second interview had me walk through my resume and asked “would you rather do this or that?” questions.

    It seemed like two the interviewers were trying to impress the other interviewer by asking tricky questions they read in a book.

    I received a phone call the week after notifying me that I was not selected for the position.
