    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Honda R & D Americas.

    Interview

    Fair but has a lot of questions focusing on more behavioral type questions, there weren't many technical questions. All in all the interview didn't take too long, but definitely be prepared to talk about your resume and yourself.

    Community Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Honda R & D Americas (Mountain View, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    This was conducted through an intermediary temp agency that found my resume online somewhere. They were not very good at communicating and as a result, the process drug out needlessly and some lines were crossed. I was told that I was the only candidate this agency had put forward that Honda was at all interested in. It would be easier if Honda posted jobs on their own site and recruited directly.

    There were two phone screens (very long, but not too hard) and a panel onsite. No part of the process was challenging and the team was very nice and seemed quite interested. No feedback was given in the end, so I have no idea why an offer did not come through.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Honda R & D Americas (Torrance, CA).

    Interview

    They ask very generic questions like what your experience is, strengths, weaknesses, etc. - not a hard interview. They are just looking for specific answers - the generic, shallow answers. Two in-person interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Honda R & D Americas in April 2014.

    Interview

    I met them at a career fair and after talking to one of the HR Managers, he advised me to apply online so that they could begin the hiring process. Within two days of applying for Honda online I received an email that they were interested but first I had to do a pre-screening. I had to fill out two documents which talked about my background, my work history and why I am interested in Honda. Within a few more days they asked to interview me after I had filled out an official paper application and gave them he right to do a background check on me.

    Two weeks later we had a video interview with the HR rep and the Engineering Manager. The interview was very basic and they really wanted to know about your technical background and how you work on a team.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty relaxed. My interview consisted of pretty broad questions about past positions and expectations. The interview was mostly to see if i could do the work and not a pest asking too many questions along with actually wanting to do the work and seeing if I would be a good fit in the group.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Honda R & D Americas (Marysville, OH).

    Interview

    Phone interview then in person interview with hiring group and members. Pretty basic questions about college experience and a few situational questions. Most departments will ask you an on the spot engineering problem, draw something in 3d on paper or draw a free body diagram. Of course there isn't a right or wrong answer, but they are looking for your thought process,

    Talked with a recruiter on campus, then got an email to schedule a Skype interview. Interview was pretty standard, behavioral questions with some general engineering questions at the end.
