    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Honda Motor (Torrance, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was online through a webcam. I interviewed with three people from management at the same time. I applied online, then I followed up with a phone call the next day. The recruiter offered me a interview on the phone. It was more of a conversation. The hiring managers were extremely nice and easy to talk to. The really just wanted to know more about me and my work ethic, they didn't ask any questions about Honda.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Honda Motor (Torrance, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online on Honda's website. Got a phone call which involved a few job related questions but no where near a formal "phone interview". Was then selected to go to a in-person interview. They flew me out, and paid for plane tickets and hotel. They were interviewing multiple people for this position that week, the interview date was locked and not the "at your convenience" type.

    The interview was 2 part- a normal business interview and a second skills/knowledge assessment. Met with 6 people total. All were friendly and not too intimidating. I was the only one in the building wearing a suit and tie so maybe keep it more casual, sports jacket with a button down shirt. I felt like I looked like I was "trying too hard"

    They are going to ask you about being comfortable relocating. Who has to be involved in that decision (wife, family, etc) What current job skills are relevant to this position. Name a time when this, this and this happened, what did you do... type of questions.

    The skill assessment was 2 parts one electrical, one powertrain/mechanical. It was all verbal, you need to prove that you're knowledgeable and can handle yourself in any situation (that's the whole purpose of the job). Some questions were brand specific so if you don't have a background fixing honda's or acura's you're going to be at a loss.

    Hiring decisions were made the following week. They were nice enough to call and let me know the outcome eventhough I didn't get an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    There were two interviews,
    and I was hired quite quickly; since the department there was short staffed at the time. The staff was very understanding for me to explain my situation as a college student. I very much appreciated them listening.

    Interview

    Applied online. Recruited got back to me a month later and set-up an interview. Interviewed in person. Was called back for a second interview at the track.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Honda Motor (Torrance, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I was first called by an HR Specialist and had a relatively easy conversation about my background. I was then move forward to an in-person interview with the hiring manager.

    The interview with the hiring manager took about 1 hour a week later. The questions asked during my interview where not difficult and felt as more of a review of my background. I have to point out that I was a former Honda associate for 8 years and had been referred by an associate for the position. So, I felt very comfortable with the interview because I was very familiar with the business.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Honda Motor (Torrance, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Technical exam with basic questions from Techline Support. Second part of interview with management was okay, no curve balls. Everyone was kind and respectful and even got follow-up from one of the hiring managers after the interview, which is unusual unless you're offered the job. HR was very difficult to contact. She did not send expense form to submit until many weeks later after many attempts, and then three months later have still not received reimbursement. Wouldn't expect this from Honda.

    General interview process and they are incredibly accommodating as I did my interview from another state while I was at school over a screen share.
