    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lear Corporation in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was very quick. Went in on Thursday and was offered the job the following Monday. Controller heavily pushed relocation and said that if I was not willing to relocate in 2-3 years, I would be expected to leave the company. Controller also offered the job to me and then very unprofessionally "rescinded" his offer less than 24 hours later, ending the conversation with "happy job hunting". I found the whole situation to be very rude and unprofessional. I am thankful I did not accept the offer to work for a company that allows their employees to behave in such a poor manner.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lear Corporation (Southfield, MI) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was emailed directly by the engineering director instead of the human resources department. Went in for a 1 to1 interview and had a tour, but didn't fill out any applications. Seemed very professional at first, but I waited a month to find out that the position has already been filled. An email or a phone call would have been nice.
