I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Takata in November 2011.
Interview Details – The interview process is extremely easy if you have a reference. I had a phone conversation with the hiring manager for about 10 minutes. We scheduled an interview at Takata which took maybe 45 minutes tops. I spoke with Human Resources for 20 minutes and Engineering Management for 25 minutes and that was it. I received a call two days later with a job offer.
Interview Question – The most difficult question was "what was the most hardship you've encountered and how did you overcome it?" Answer Question
Negotiation Details – On the application they had a field for "expected pay" and I filled it out and they gave me that pay. I could have probably asked for more.

Interview Details – The Takata interview process is not too bad, but different. After the initial call from HR you are brought into an onsite interview. You first interview with HR, but in a more detailed way then other places. It's like they are you hiring manager. After that you interview with a manager and maybe a lead. Sometimes they will bring in a director also.
Interview Question – Do you like doing paperwork? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate and settled for an offer that was level with the job I had been laid off from. They said they have not given raises in 3 years and I would be paid unfairly if they gave me more.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Takata in December 2010.
Interview Details – Had three interviews with the hiring manager, director and an employee after got a call from HR.
The HR told me the manager was very impressed with me but they were concerned about my expectation. I contacted the manager to inform that I was flexible. Waited another week or so without getting any feed back. I e-mailed the HR to get no response, e-mailed twice to the manager to get no reply. I think they are lack of professionalism and even rude. It would not cost for them to say no cost me!
