Interview Question – None, just the tests.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Was given an offer, but there was no room for negotiation. Still, it was a decent offer and I'm happy I picked Yazaki.

Import Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Employee
Canton, MI

I applied online and interviewed at Yazaki North America.

Interview Details – 2 interview process, usually. Helps if you know somebody to refer you.

Interview Question – No silly questions, just straight forward regarding your work history & abilities.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Tried to negotiate...it was about $1500 lower per year than my other pending offer with another company, but I accepted Yazaki instead because of a great sales pitch by the recruiter about advancement, yearly raises, etc...Don't fall for it, your department will not want to re-hire for you position, therefore will not let you transfer to another dept., and all of a sudden they need to cut costs so your yearly raise will no longer be granted.

Very Easy Interview

Analyst II Interview

Analyst II
Edwardsville, IL

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Yazaki North America.

Interview Details – You interview with a temp agency and then work for how ever long they want until you are hired directly if you don't quit or get fired before then

Interview Question – Interview was very simple. Supervisor was not skilled enough to interview and had very little experience with doing so. Questions would come from the basic interview style when reading it off the internet. If you were fashionable and could suck up you would get the job. That is what she looked for.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None. You took what was offered.

Engineer Interview

Engineer
Canton, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Yazaki North America in March 2010.

Interview Details – When interviewing at Yazaki North America, it seemed as if they used a person who had a full time job of interviewing candidates; but had a lack of technical knowledge that is specific to the job.

Interview Question – I was very surprised when the majority of the questions being asked focused less on my education and engineering qualifications, and more on a role-playing scenario involving how I would talk to a client if I knew that the deadline for a project was impossible to meet.   Answer Question
