Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Toyota Financial Services in March 2013.
Interview Details – questions tend to be very generic, most of which are behavior questions. There are industry specific questions, but most of which are job related, instead of brain teaser, or "consulting" case interview. As long as you have the relevant skill or did the same job from the prior employer, you will get good chance.
Interview Question – what's your area of development Answer Question
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Toyota Financial Services.
Interview Details – I did not obtain an interview yet, but the recruiter for the Phoenix (Chandler) area was very friendly at the career fair at my University this afternoon. You can tell she is very customer service oriented and wants the same person for the position, and is definitely waiting for the individual to sell his/herself in order to get the position.
Interview Question – What do you like about the position? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Toyota Financial Services.
Interview Details – The interview process took the longest I have ever experienced. I went through 3 phone interviews and then 3 interviews in person, one in HR, one with the department and on that we had a tour and it was very informal, basically just reviewed my resume and then the 3rd in person was with the hiring manager and was a personality test and then situation questions and behavioral type of interview with just the hiring manager and myself.
Interview Question – None they were all easy and expected Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I told them when they called to interview that I wouldn't talk to them unless they would pay me at least $17.00 /hr, went through all 6 calls and interviews taking 2 months and they offered me the job for much less. I said, NO unless you are coming way up, you have wasted my time and yours I told you from the beginning. They ended up slowly coming up, finally I said I told you from the beginning its my last offer to you, take it or leave it, they called back and I accepted.
Interviewed at Toyota Financial Services
Interview Details – 3 interviews, 2 over Webex. They asked a whole range of questions regarding past experience, and job expectations. Very stringent and detailed interview process, as Toyota insists on hiring the best, at the cheapest rate possible. They like to hire contractors a lot more, so they can pay no benefits.

Interview Details –
The interview at TMFC was good however they really want the "Book Worm Nerd" People to hire in the Field for Dealer Services. So if you have a BA and never worked in the Auto Industry you probably get hired.
Why they like that blows because any Toyota Dealership especially in Southern Ca prefer Dealer Service Rep to either worked in the Car Business or know what they are doing in the field. The interview was very low key and text book questions reading form a piece of paper asking you "What do you see yourself in 5 Years"
For 12 years in the Auto Industry on both sides coming with good experience from the inside I didn’t get to far with Toyota, it would have be nice to get the job and make the $90,000.
Interview Question – What 2 words do you discribe yourself. View Answer
The process took 2 days - interviewed at Toyota Financial Services in January 2012.
Interview Details –
Telephone Interview with H/R Manager, followed by 1:1 Interview with H/R manager.
Two panel Interviews: 1st with Peers in position and h/r.
Second with two next levels of management including direct supervisor, site manager, and peers of direct manager.
Lots of canned behavioral questions in panel interviews such as: Give an example when you encountered this scenario. Have you ever had to do this... etc. Everyone in the panels working from pre-printed forms and writing down everything I said.
The site manager was more focused and attitude, management philosophy, and customer service focus. H/R verified qualifications - more of a rundown of my resume/application.
The culture appears to be very people-oriented - caring - very concerned about feelings, perceptions, work-family balance issues.
I was called by H/R several days later with the decline indicating that a more precise match with a candidate in the automotive industry was selected.
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Toyota Financial Services in October 2011.
Interview Details – Was recruited on campus. Did one on one campus interview and was invited to Portland, OR for more interviews. Had only two 15 minute interviews and then there was a 30 minute panel interview for the next day. I did not qualify for that interview. Job wasn't quite what I thought it was going to be. I thought it was more of a consulting position but it was more of a "help the dealers execute their ideas" type of position. They emphasized that you have to move at the drop of a hat. Each relocation gives you $10k. Interview questions were very open format, I think they were looking more for a personality than actual skills. Rumors spread that the pay started at 43k which is very low for LA. Elaborate process all for 2 15 minute interviews. Gave a good presentation to describe the role, while in Portland. Said they'd reimburse all costs but then gave limits after the fact, so that was kinda unfair. They expect you to be at Toyota for a long time. Don't tell them you plan on starting your own business or anything like that.
