I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Toyota.
Interview Details – Typical interview times is about 3, one with HR, the other is with hiring manager and the last is with the hiring manager and the vice-president of the department which you'll be entering. HR will interview you based on your qualifications, experience as well as your suitability. Hiring managers will ask you more on your knowledge of the job as well as to test your critical thinking and problem solving skills. Last interview with the hiring manager and vice-president is more of them explaining the overall job to you to see if you might still be interested.

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Toyota.
Interview Details – I was approached by them as a member of the society of women engineers the night before our career/co-op fair. The next day I spoke with a representitive and was invited to in interview the following day. It was a very fast process and they want a response from you quickly. HR can be a little slow getting back to you after you have been hired. I didn't know my department until about a month before I started and my roommate didn't know her location until about 8 weeks before we started.

Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Toyota in June 2012.
Interview Details – Very casual and easy process
Negotiation Details – Salary and post offered is generally non-negotiable
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Toyota in April 2012.
Interview Details – I got an email from a hiring manager about setting up a phone interview. The phone interview was fairly easy and consisted of the general questions like "why Toyota" and "are you willing to travel" as well as some behavioral interview questions drawing from your work and education experiences. The interview was conducted by the hiring manager and two other people who worked in procurement. A few days later I got a call saying they would fly me out to their offices in Kentucky for an in-person interview. The flew me out and put me up at a hotel. The interview took about 2 hours. I first interviewed with two people who asked me about my background, some more behavioral questions, and an easy math problem solving question (they even give you a calculator). After that, I met with another person for much shorter, more laid back interview. He just asked about my previous experiences. Then the hiring manager gave me a bunch of material about Toyota and what it's like to live in Cincinnati. Later that night, myself and some other interviewees had dinner with some people who are currently buyers at Toyota. So, overall it was a fairly easy interview process. Everybody was really nice. Although, I ended not getting the job.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Toyota in February 2012.
Interview Details –
I applied online on teh company web-site. 2 weeks later a young HR girl has called me on telephone to schedule a telephone interview with a manager. THe interview was scheduled 1,5 weeks after and in fact I was interviewed by 3 managers: 1 HR, 2 from Product Planning. All are men, which is maybe typical for a car industry. :) They went very detailed through my CV not missing even one small detail. To some positions they returned again to ask detailed questions. They tried to find out, if I have ever worked with Excel. As far as I understood, this is an "Excel company", they work a lot with Excel files and analysis.
In the end of interview they asked my salary expectations, per month and netto.
Also asked my availability.
I am waiting for the next round of interviews, in case i will be selected, it will be interview at the European HQ in Brussels. They let me know, it would take up to 3 weeks before they let me know if I am through into the next round.
The conversation was nice and plesant, even though with a huge managers' attention to details.
The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Toyota in February 2012.
Interview Details – Phone interview followed by interview where I was told a follow up for the next step will come soon. No news, two emails and a phone call to the hiring manager, no reply. I wanted to know where I standed in the process and if they would continue with my file, but they never had the decency to reply.
