    Director Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Nissan North America.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is typical mass cattle call for resumes. Any hires of director or above tend to be politically tied. Company has been in a mode to hire outside lately. This gives opportunity to get in , but be aware, once you are in, advancement is very limited. HR is dominated by manufacturing personnel. They focus on tick-box selection, with little appreciation for interpersonal skills and intangible work talent.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work here? I would't focus on talking about where you want to be in 5 years. You should just be "honored" to be able to work for "this world-class company."   View Answer

    Interview Details

    I found the summer internship posting on my university career page in the Spring of 2013.

The Senior Manager asked me a problem-solving question relevant to the position I was applying for - she seemed to be more interested in my thought process than a specific answer.
