    Logistics/Supply Chain Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solana Beach, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Taiyo Yuden (Solana Beach, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Tough and humbling lesson learned.

    I am a recent graduate who has only had about three interviews before this one of which the companies originated from American/Westernized countries.

    Previous interviews were typical, consisting of behavioral, personality, and related questions that help the employer really get to know you.

    Overall, I did not even get to the interview questions.

    When I was emailing with the interviewer, I already sensed signs that it would have been intense and one would really have to be professional and knowledgeable to get further in this process.

    The interviewer expected me to know the job description inside out as an expert.

    I did not end up getting to the questions as a result, and I did not expect this, but it's a good reminder that you must be extremely prepared if you want to get a job, especially in this tough economy.

    Take good notes on the description, know about the company from your research, etc.

    One must know that Taiyo Yuden is a very reputable company, since they are basically JVC, the old VHS, CD, DVD maker who also makes other electronic components.

    Also, Japanese working culture, values, and ideals are very professional and intense. The culture is very results driven and one must be very professional, knowledgeable, and prepared to really be able to succeed in a Japanese company.

    Just be very prepared overall for any interview!

    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Taiyo Yuden (San Jose, CA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Very judgmental towards the candidates. I bet they are judgmental to all the candidates they interview because they want best of the best. They do not know that each candidate has his own talents and not everyone are the same. But the managers at Taiyo Yuden in San Jose, California wants the best who can make 1 million dollar revenue within a 1 month or two weeks. This is impossible because USA's economy is still in a bad shape and companies are trying to save money to avoid bankruptcy.

    Try to avoid getting an interview from this place. It's not worth your time to get hired. You must have Ph.D or some kind of super power to make money if you want to work here for a long time. LOL.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Taiyo Yuden in December 2012.

    Interview

    On 12/17/2012, I met with three managers who manages the San Jose Branch. The managers were not prepared and disorganized on questions they presented to me. I had a hard time answering the questions and couldn't comply to what they were saying. I think there is a cultural differences that they couldn't understand to manage business strategy. Business strategy doesn't work with just having a team. It comes from creative talents and skills that promotes business ethics and establishment for the company. This is important if they want to manage good marketing with the US customers.
