I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Toyota (Erlanger, KY) in September 2014.
Very straightforward, met a recruiter at a campus career fair, I was scheduled for an interview for the next day. The interview ran in a STAR format, with several behavior focused questions. Two weeks later, i received a phone notice about a pending offer of employment, which i received via email two days later.
- All behavioral questions! Be prepared to back up your answers following the STAR format. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Toyota.
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.
- 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

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.
- Nothing difficult. If you do your homework on interview questions and come up with some standard answers before your interview you should be fine Answer Question
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took a week – interviewed at Toyota in October 2013.
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 college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Toyota (Rochester, NY) in October 2013.
There were two people. Asked two star questions. How did you contribute to your last co-op experience. Second was how did you contribute to the team as a person when working on your last co-op project.
- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Toyota (West Lafayette, IN) in September 2013.
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.
- 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
Reasons for Declining
I'm a chemical engineering and I thought I would have better opportunities elsewhere.
