    Controls Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IHI (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process if very structured. It is driven by the HR team. They organize the review team and give the starting interview. You seem to interview with at least three people: an HR person, a person on the team where you might work, and the hiring manager. Each person will ask you predefined behavioral interview questions. Be ready with your STAR (look it up on google) answers.

    Interview Questions

    • The HR representative asked the age old, "Tell me about one time when you made a mistake or didn't deliver." It's a bogus question that everyone should be prepared for and have a canned answer to. It can't be something too bad and you better have had the best fix in the world for it.   Answer Question

    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IHI (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The company that IHI used to recruit was easy to work with. They were very flexible with regard to scheduling the interview. The interviewers did most of the talking, so I didn't have to say much. I don't know if that was a good thing or a bad thing. When I was asked a question, it was something straight off of a list of standard interview questions. No original thought went into the questions they asked.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at IHI.

    Interview

    Interviewed in London. Very easy. They only want to know if you speak both English and Japanese well. They're not interested in what you did in the previous jobs or what skills you have because they are not going to take those into considerations when assigning you to a department/position.

    For the second and last interview with the HR staff and your potential boss they fly you to the HQ in Tokyo. That one was easy as well. Bring water with you, they won't offer you anything for an hour and half.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There's no negotiation. They don't even show you a contract or salary beforehand unless you ask. If you ask, however, they become confused because it's not common to do such thing at Japanese companies.
