I applied online. The process took 12+ months – interviewed at Hyundai Heavy Industries (Montgomery, AL) in November 2012.
The process started with a orientation, 10 of us were picked out of about 80 for some sort of compentency test . After the test there was a interview. After the interview I was told to show up for a month of school from 6pm to 10pm . After the school and more tests I did not hear back from them until one year later. Then I was asked to come in for another interview and then the drug test.

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Hyundai Heavy Industries (영암 (South Korea)) in November 2011.
First, after applying, there's an IQ test in order to check if the applicant is intellectually capable of solving various puzzles and riddles. Some pass the test, many fail. After that the applicants are forced to do a TOEIC speaking test. Since a lot of Korean applicants cannot speak or write good english, this is a method to check if the applicant was enthusiastic on learning another language or not. (I do not see the purpose - Never spoke a single english word after getting in to the company). Also as the first IQ test, many fail and a few pass.
Lastly, the few left applicants do a group interview in front of the company high executives including the CEO. The interview is not that hard since it's just a simple personality check up but the atmosphere - especially the typical asian etiquette upon people who are older and in higher position makes your body to shiver and stiff.
Surprisingly, working as an IT support does not actually require any IT skills.
I personally think the IQ & TOEIC speaking test is just a total waste for both the applicant and the company since you are not going to utilize such skills after getting hired. Also not testing your specialty does not make sense. I got the job offer.. but still don't understand how they would recruit competent employees.
The interviewer is very conservative. most questions involved asking political views. even you think is right, still if you say an opposite opinion, you're out. Diversity is really not considered in this company. You might as well regard it as more of a military atmosphere.
