    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Toyota in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    They are looking for very pushy sales people. This was in Lancaster, PA. The interviewer stated he needs very thick skinned people, and he curses his sales people out. In addition to this guy told me after he curses you out he doesn't hold grudges and he moves on. He was very polite with me, but was also very direct and honest.

    Co-Op Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Toyota.

    Interview Details

    I was lucky to hear from my university about a co-op/internship opportunity at Toyota, so I jumped at the chance. Even though I was younger than what the employers expected (I was 19 and in undergrad), I got an interview nonetheless. During my first phone interview the interviewer asked me 3 very simple behavioral STARs questions: 1) Give me an example of a time you had to make a difficult decision, 2) Why do you want to work at Toyota, 3) What was one time you had a leadership role in something. It lasted a total of 15 minutes and then we scheduled a time for my second interview. The interviewer was very nice and calming, but it was a bit odd that she kept on forgetting my major and kept asking if I was getting my phD. My second phone interview was with 3 people of managerial positions. They were great and all introduced themselves and their work experiences. My entire interview consisted of me explaining every point of my resume in detail and it lasted a very long time-an hour and half. At the end I didn't get the position for that semester, but they did offer me an opportunity for the next semester. I didn't take it.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me very specific questions about my previous research experience during my second interview--such as specific measurement scales and the like.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Toyota.

    Interview Details

    Hired on within 10 minutes of speaking to a recruiter. The on boarding system was rough in 2012, but has consistently gotten better. Toyota has been able to kaizen (continuously improve) this process and it has helped for the traveling engineers/interns that deal with hiring on 2x/yr.

    Interview Details

    I got a call to come in for the initial typing test followed by a 30 minute behavioral interview. While I did not get a job offer I really appreciated the fact that they personally called me to let me know. Usually you either don't hear from a company at all or you just get an email.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Toyota in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had an interview on campus after talking with a recruiter at a career fair. Mostly behavioral questions, nothing too out of the ordinary. Seemed like it went well, was told I would be contacted either way within the next day or two and never heard back. I've called the recruiter and one of the interviewers who gave me his card with no response back from either one. Not sure what happened.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Toyota in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    My interview process was maybe a bit different. I initially met the company at a school job fair. Gave them my resume and scheduled an interview the next day. I met with a group of three other Toyota employees. First they asked me to go over in detail every element of my resume. I elaborated on all my activities and verified my GPA.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions asked were mostly how would you deal with a stressful environment. I just thought back to my classes. I mentioned when I had multiple projects and deadlines to met and how I managed it.   Answer Question
