    Production Control Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ennis, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at JTEKT North America (Ennis, TX) in December 2010.

    Interview

    The HR manager and director of operations (plant manager) were great to speak with. A tour of the plant was also well worth the time. The biggest downfall here is the VP from Japan. His english was extremely broken making an already stressful interview almost unbearable. I pointed to what I could on my resume to help him understand. He nodded as if he did understand. I guess that was not true. I later found out from the recruiter that the VP said I didn't answer his questions, and this would not be a good working relationship... Go figure!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at JTEKT North America (Plymouth, MI).

    Interview

    I applied for an internship through my college roundtable and received a call for an interview a few months later. Had 1 phone interview and 1 on-site/lunch interview. In both the interviews I spoke with my supervisor and someone from HR. They were very nice and took me downtown for lunch. We talked about the internship position in details; the type of work, training, my background on the field, how I may be able to contribute. I was given a tour of the facility with the company history and we talked about upcoming projects that I might be working on.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions asked were straightforward and none of them were unexpected. I was asked about my motivation and we mostly talked about details from my resume.   Answer Question

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at JTEKT North America in July 2018.

    Interview

    I received a call from the HR guy, and did a brief phone interview. A little over a week later, he called me back for an in person interview. It was a panel interview with two others. They basically were talking about how this is still a new department, they were still getting everything in place, they supervisor was still pretty new himself, there weren’t really any training procedures, etc. they basically admitted that things were pretty unorganized at the moment. Not really want you want to hear when looking for a new job. They also failed to mention, until pretty deep into the interview, that it was a call center position. One of the questions I like to ask is if there is a guideline to where a new hire should be after 30,60, and 90 days- and how is success measured. They couldn’t really answer that. It seems like this could eventually be a great position, but everything is still in chaos, and it was obvious that it wouldn’t be a good fit for me.

    Demand Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westlake, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JTEKT North America (Westlake, OH) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with an onsite manager and the hiring manager who worked offsite. The interview process had standard questions, including why would you like to work here and what would make you the best candidate. Most questions had already been asked during previous phone interviews.

    In the end, I never received a response back about the position after interviewing. I interviewed at the beginning of July and towards the end of August I still heard nothing. I reached out to HR and the hiring manager and they told me they were making a decision at the end of July. 3 weeks later, nothing. I ended up seeing the job being reposted. Very disappointed, as it is very unprofessional to not even notify candidates who have come in for interviews whether or not they received a position. Just does not set a good example for future employees.
