    Management Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kia Motors America (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    I have never interviewed with a company that cared so little about the candidate experience. I was asked to interview twice in one week because they were moving quickly. Since I already had a job, I had to take time off work. The interviews went well and I was told I was the final candidate. Three months later and I have never received a non-solicitated follow up. What a disregard of my personal time. The sad thing is, I really liked the manager and I know the feeling was mutual.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kia Motors America (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewed through Volt first and then got a call to interview with managers from Kia. The interview was easy and quick. The managers were nice and funny. However, the whole interview was misleading as they were not hiring for consumer affairs analyst, they were hiring more for call center reps.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kia Motors America.

    Interview

    I applied July 7 and first contact from Kia was end of August. I then had one phone interview and two in-person interviews within the next two weeks. The HR recruiter was very transparent about the process and kept in contact with me until after my final round of interviews. I checked in every other week to see if I was still being considered for the position since they said they wanted to make a decision within two weeks. After following up bi-weekly for two months, the recruiter and coordinator stopped responding and I gave up. All the people I met with were very nice and the feedback I received from HR was all positive so I was a little unsure why they didn't at least send an email letting me know they were going in a different direction. I felt it was a little unprofessional that I made it to the final round of interviews and I wasn't even given the courtesy of a rejection email. I guess that may be the new HR standard.

    Interview

    I only had one interview. The questions they asked were very straight forward and simple. There were two interviewers, and they asked about my team management skills and team working skills. Very important because they are a global company that has many other subsidiaries. They also chose to ask me why I wanted to work at KIA and if I had Microsoft Powerpoint and Excel Skills. Also, they asked about what was on my resume and what kind of mechanical engineering background I had.
