    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DENSO America (Southfield, MI).

    Interview

    Quick and painless. I interviewed with four engineering managers at once, which initially was a intimidating but proved to be more calming due to the informal nature and banter. It was a pretty open interview. 5 years later after accepting and knowing the guys that interviewed me very well, i understand they are all good friends outside of work, hence the banter during that interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DENSO America (Southfield, MI) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Had a Skype interview with HR, very relaxed and comfortable. Overall, questions were basic and more just to get to know me and how I would fit in personality wise. I was chosen to come in for an interview day with presentations, testing, and interviews but ended up accepting another job before the date came around. Great communication and interest on their end, it was a good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DENSO America in February 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter seemed to be overworked and hard to reach. Scheduled interview very quickly. Interviewed with hiring manager and recruiter. It was very quick, they both were eyeballing the clock. I should have taken that as a sign of not interested. It just seemed they were interviewing me to meet a quota.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DENSO America (Auburn Hills, MI) in October 2015.

    Interview

I interviewed with a group manager and two other employees, combined technical interview and behavioral questions.

    Reasons for Declining

    I ended up declining the offer because I was really looking for a direct-hire position, rather than a contract job, and the job would entail mostly thermal analysis, which I felt wasn't my strongest suit.

    Corporate Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at DENSO America.

    Interview

    Easy interviews. Phone interview with hiring manger followed by panel interview with hiring manager and his colleagues. Don't expect any sort of normal functioning however by their HR. Found a job with another company before the process was complete, but it's the only company I've ever called and the voicemail box was full. Unprofessional to the extreme. Interviews are scheduled with almost no notice (I'm talking like 12 hours). If their HR department is any indication of this company as a whole, I'd steer clear if possible.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions about background and how you respond to certain situations.   Answer Question
