    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Kia in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted through a 3rd party company that an opening was available at "a leading automotive manufacturer" in Irvine, Ca. They submitted my information to the hiring department and within a week I was scheduled for an interview. The majority of the time in the interview was spent listening to a detailed description of the position itself, and what the typical job duty entails.

    Interview Details

    I only had one interview. The questions they asked were very straight forward and simple. There were two interviewers, and they asked about my team management skills and team working skills. Very important because they are a global company that has many other subsidiaries. They also chose to ask me why I wanted to work at KIA and if I had Microsoft Powerpoint and Excel Skills. Also, they asked about what was on my resume and what kind of mechanical engineering background I had.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Kia in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was roaming on Craigslist when I saw that they were holding a job fair and decided to apply online, even though they said you could just show up.
    When I got to the dealership, I signed in and they gave me an application to fill out. Waited about 30 minutes before I, and three others, were called for an interview. It was quite an interesting interview. The man interviewing us was very personable and you could tell he only wanted upbeat employees.
    He said by 5pm that day, candidates that were selected would have to come back for orientation and job training the next three days straight.
