    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Toyoda Gosei North America.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiting agency for a contract to hire position at Toyoda Gosei North America's office in Troy, Michigan. The initial phone interview was conducted by this recruiting agency, after which they decided to bring me in for my first in person interview.

    One of the recruiters met me in the parking lot on my way in and briefed me a little on what to expect, who I should expect to be there, etc. The interview was conducted by the HR manager and two members of the IT team, the director of IT was not present. Mostly it was a pretty standard interview, they asked about my familiarity with various different software packages and services and how I would handle specific support situations. The recruiter asked me to give him a call on my way out to let him know how it went, so I did. I was told that I could expect an answer about how they would proceed by the next day.

    I received a phone call from the recruiter saying that Toyoda Gosei would like to move forward with a second in person interview, this time with the entire team (5 people) in attendance. When I arrived not all were present, but I was definitely able to get a feel for what it would be like to work with them in a team environment after spending some time with them. The second interview was similar to the first, they wanted to get an idea for how well I could provide support for the systems in their environment in addition to figuring out how well I would integrate into their work culture and management style. As it was described to me, nearly everything in the company is done in a regimented collaborative process to ensure that everyone has a say in a given decision or process.

    I was extended an offer by Toyoda Gosei the day of this second interview. Because of several other opportunities that I was anticipating I requested that the recruiting company give me several days, potentially a week, to weigh my options and give them an answer. I was informed that a week would be excessive, but that they would allow me several days to talk it over and make my decision. Just about every day after that involved at least 20 minutes on the phone with the recruiting company pushing me for an answer. After 4 work days (Wed-Mon) I informed the recruiting agency that I was declining Toyoda Gosei's offer to pursue other options. They were very professional.
