Director Interview

Director
Detroit, MI

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Panasonic Automotive Systems Company in August 2012.

Interview Details – Initial communication from HR manager. 30 min telephone screen. Next stage was on-site interview with VP and Director in division. That is as far as I made it.

However, though there was an extremely lengthy job description posted (got this through internet posting), there was a lot of basic information missing: P&L size, specific products (infotainment and advanced hybrid batteries were mentioned but actual product was speakers). It was not clear what they were looking for in terms of experience. It appears that infotainment and experience with a particular customer were strongly desired (based on the interview), but the JD didn't indicate this. I could have avoided the whole thing, as neither of these was a strength for me.

Initial response from resume submission was almost two months. At the interview I was told there would be some follow up the following week. Took more than three weeks to provide any response and this was a rejection - no explanation. I think the communication process could have been better throughout.

No behavior-based questions. Just more "general discussion" and typical asking off the resume. I was asked about my infotainment experience, when it's pretty clear from my resume that I have no experience in that area at all. Again, hard to see what the point was if they already knew what they wanted. Maybe I was just a comparison candidate?

Interview Question – I don't think any of the questions were particularly difficult. People I met were pleasant and seemed professional.   Answer Question
