    Region Ops Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Mazda North American Operations (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    The process was very long and drawn out. I was contacted by the recruiter one day after I applied for the position I was scheduled for an in person interview that was 30 days out. I arrived at the less then adequate regional office in Irvine. The building was extremely outdated and the receptionist was rude. The culture within the company was not a fit for me right off the bat. I interviewed with 4 of the top regional partners and they were extremely laid back and nonchalant. This company is not ran with extreme professionalism and that is why I feel they do not succeed within the sector. Avoid Mazda if you have previous exp within a larger car manufacturer because you will be disappointed. I was told I would hear back within 7-10 days, it took 17 business days.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mazda North American Operations (Irvine, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR rep in California. Subsequent phone interview with local hiring manager. Absolutely HORRIFIC in getting back to you. After the first 4 weeks received an email stating you are still in running but I have personal travel and business travel coming up etc. So then why post to fill a job when you won't be around to follow through?? Ridiculous. I withdrew my application because my first impression was a lasting one.

    Interview

    During the interview they give a good pitch on it's great to work for Mazda, then after an hour they show you out and not hear from them in 3 months. Only to find they decided to go with someone despite going through an agency.
