    I was working through a staffing agency in Chicago and they set me up on an interview.

    You have to apply through a temporary agency (physical test, aptitude test, drug screening, background check) and you work for several years before you can be fulltime. Once you are accepted, you will train for 2 weeks at the start and learn two jobs. You then are offered the opportunity to be hired, based on how long you have been there and evaluations that are done by your group leader. You will go through a physical evaluation, blood work, and they will look at your evaluations. You are also given another background check and then interviewed. If everything is ok, then you are offered a fulltime job.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Subaru of Indiana Automotive (Lafayette, IN) in February 2012.

    Interview

    It started with emailing back and forth with an associate in human resources. I went in for an interview with the associate from human resources and the manager of the department that i would be working in. All contact was very professional and my only complaint is that they did not pay for my travel expenses to travel to the interview.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Subaru of Indiana Automotive in February 2010.

    Interview

    I initially had a phone interview with HR and was then asked to come in for an interview with the rep and a production manager. Questions were basic and open. I was then asked to stay and fill out a behavioral test which also had intelligence questions and math questions. I was then asked to go to the final interview with the VP of Productions (I think). The questions were a lot tougher. Overall good experience and a good company!
