    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hitachi Automotive Systems Americas.

    Interview

    Hired through a temp company. They will hire anyone that wants work, as long as you can pass a simple written test. After a probationary phase, you are eligible to work for Hitachi itself. There is a drug test at this phase, but no interview. The staffing agency was misleading about the number of hours I was expected to work.
