    Infotainment Test Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Honda R & D Americas (Raymond, OH) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was good. The engineers made good questions about my experience.
    However, although everything went ok, I didn't get the job. And I received no feedback from the company. That's something in my opinion is missing. Specially because I had to use two days vacations from my current job, and I would expect to receive any feedback at least.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Honda R & D Americas (Raymond, OH) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The managers that interviewed me were from three separate departments interviewing for their respective departments. They were all rather focused on other tasks and often were looking at their phone or watches during the interview and did not seem interested in the process at hand. This interview was for an entry level position, however, it appeared that the qualifications I had were not up to their standards during the interview even though they liked them enough to bring me in for the interview. I had to explain several times concepts that were out of the managers' wheel houses in vehicle design and they eventually gave up on trying to understand my projects. I was very disappointed in the way the interview was conducted and the lack of respect that I received.

    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 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,

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was contacted by one of Honda's recruiters. I Received a phone call asking me to complete a questionnaire including salary requirements.
    Later this person told me I was asking too much and in order to continue I'd need to take less. They're range was less than I currently make and included 20% OT

    When I told the recruiter this he was extremely rude and continued to typecast me in a box with only a certain amount of experience.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Honda R & D Americas.

    Interview

    The interview process went very smoothly, I got the opportunity to interview with four different subdivisions. The whole process was around 7 hours or so, so bring something to do for the breaks between interviews. Before the interview they give you a small tour and small breakfast. Be sure to get plenty of sleep the night before.
